How is Barclays helping with improving my saving behavior?

Curl Talk - Let's talk Natural Hair!



So there's something fantastic happening in Nairobi this weekend that I am so excited about that I can't wait to attend. Have you heard of Felicia Leatherwood? I hadn't really until a few weeks ago when I saw her name doing the rounds on some Natural hair groups on Facebook. Turns out she is a celebrated natural hair stylist from LA, California, known to many as "The Hair Whisperer" and is a miracle worker when it comes to hair. She has styled the hair of personalities such as Viola Davis, Jill Scott, Nicole Ari Parker, Teyonah Paris, Ava DuVernay as well as men such as Will Smith, Terrence Howard and Hill Harper to name a few, for red carpet and magazine cover looks. Her work has appeared in Essence, InStyle, People Magazines, as well as television and film.
