International Natural Hair Meet Up

The International Natural Hair Meetup Day was held Saturday May 30, 2015. Various locations throughout the world held this event. I attended the International Natural Hair Meet Up that was held in Pittsburgh, PA. The Pittsburgh based natural hair group It’s a Natural Thang sponsored this event  In addition to having wonderful vendors, this event concluded with a special presentation. The presentation was called “International Hair, The Diaspora Edition: The drum, the braid, the dance.” The presentation documented the story of African descendants and gave an account of hairstyles/headwraps and dance traditions.

High Tea with SYOUper Fly!

Last week I attended my first High Tea with the group SYOUper Fly! SYOUper Fly! is the sister group of It’s a Natural Thang. Both of these groups are based in Pittsburgh, PA. The High Tea was held at Arnold’s Tea located at East Ohio Street on the North Side of Pittsburgh. This was a great opportunity for the ladies who attended to network and enjoy some delicious tea and treats. 🙂
