Hi everyone! Here are the much delayed photos from the hair conference I attended a couple of weeks ago. As I mentioned, I didn’t end up taking many photos nor recording extensive footage because I was enjoying talking with ladies and listening to the presentations. The conference lineup was as follows: Keynote Speaker-Nina Ellis-Hervey (Beautifulbrwnbabydol), a workshop/talk on health and fitness by personal trainer Renisha James, and a workshop/talk on things “Beyond Natural Hair” by the Monroe sisters (MsVaughn and Meechy Monroe). There was also an impromptu discussion led by the UIUC African Student Association on the relationship among Africans and African Americans. The conference was really great. It combined two things that I love- education and hair. Oh, and ya’ll the youtube ladies are just as beautiful in person as they are in their videos. They were also very kind and interacted with us like they were just general conference participants. My photos and videos do not do the conference justice, but I hope you will enjoy them anyway.
