Natural Hair Congress Canada!

 
This Saturday, June 27th 2015, the Loft Hotel will be hosting the 1st ever Natural Hair Congress Canada (NHCC) in Montreal (314 Sherbrooke East to be exact) exclusively dedicated to the beauty & care of curly, kinky, wavy or locked hair. Presented by the Inhairitance salon boutique, this all-day event features speakers and panelists such as Stacey McKenzie (top model, judge on Canada’s Next Top Model as well as Founder of Walk This Way Workshops INC), Audrey Sivasothy (author of The Science of Black Hair), Nerissa Irving (lecturer and editor of Kamoy Magazine) and Marième Ndiaye (spokesperson and singer)…need I say more?!…(But I will)…

         

At NHCC, you will have access to a great selection of natural hair and body products, get priceless advice and feedback on personal hair challenges (we all know about that right?!), take part of the discussion with the panelist on burning issues, share experiences and hair stories and dwell in the oasis of wellbeing. Also, you will not want to miss the hairstyling competition & hair show; where 5 Canadian specialized stylists in naturally curly hair compete for 1st place in a live stage competition and where Natural Hair experts across Canada show off their talents & skills, signature styles and wedding inspirations. All of this followed by mixing and mingling with sounds presented by an all-women collective Amazon DJ Crew. So, I can go on and on about this event, but truth is, you need to be there. Everyone is welcome!

“Only a few specialists are trained to cut and care for curly textured hair. Each curl has its size and personality. We hope through this conference to offer an exchange platform on aesthetics but also on socio-political aspect of wearing our naturally curly and kinky hair” explains Abisara Machold, owner of Inhairitance and founder of the Natural Hair Congress Canada.

You really don’t want to miss this event. This is the First congress exclusively dedicated to the curly hair movement in Canada. I hope to see you there!

Hairspiration: Bangs!

One of my favourite hairstyles to rock is bangs! When I get freshly cut bangs, I feel like a completely different person. A few snips can give you a whole new look, whether straight, long, short, wavy or side-swept. It’s definitely a quick and easy way to change your look without having to snip much off. You don’t have to be on “team big forehead” to rock bangs either, it looks great on most face shapes. See for yourself…here are some of my hairspiration boards featuring bangs!

Not sure about putting scissors to your hair? You may want to consider bang extensions. Clip-in bangs are the perfect way to get the look or try it out without the commitment.

Hairspiration: The Top Knot!

2015/01/img_4378.jpg
Last year, I cut my hair bob length and I immediately fell in love with my new look…That is, until I realized I couldn’t rock one of my favourite hairstyles anymore…the top knot. I may have even shed a tear that day. So ever since then, I’ve been determined to let my hair grow to top knot length. I’m very happy to say that the time has now come for me to work my up-do and I’m super ecstatic. I love that top knots can be messy or precise (I live for a fab sock bun look!) and can complement any outfit.
What kept me inspired throughout my hair growth journey were some of my favourite top knot hairspiration looks that I referred to every time I thought of putting scissors through my hair.

I’m Loving: Fishtail Braid!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about wanting to grow my hair long enough to do a beautiful ponytail or side fishtail braid. I just love the simple yet intricate details of the overall look. It’s classy, fresh and even goddess-like.
See for yourself…

I enjoy it’s versatility. This hairstyle can be worn in a messy, relaxed or a more formal way. If you prefer a thicker fishtail, you can simply add hair clips or extensions to get a more fulsome look (I’m honestly thinking about this option right now).

Will you be rocking this hairstyle this season?

Happy Friday!
