I am excited for one of my latest endeavors. This January 27th, 2013, I will be flying down to Austin, TX to be one of the speakers at “Welcome Home” presented by Do You Naturally Holistic Natural Hair Salon and Spa. EXCITING!!!!!!! Not only will I be speaking at the event, I’ll also be filming the event…when I’m not speaking, of course! Remember, I am a videographer for hire! On top of filming and speaking, I am one of the sponsors too! I will be giving away some of my homemade/diy art journals to a few lucky winners!
If you are in the area, check out this amazing event.
One of the special guest will be Naya Jones, the owner of Rootwork Meditation and Movement. Her classes promote relaxation, clarity, and spiritual renewal. Black Diaspora cultures inspire her unique approach. Naya has facilitated meditation with youth and adults since 2008. She brings to Rootwork 10 years experience with meditation and shamanic journeywork, and 5 years as a Reiki Practitioner. As a woman who balances many roles (wife, entrepreneur, doctoral student), she understands the busi-ness of everyday life. She understands how precious BE time is.
Another session will include, “Wrap It Up!” by Ms Angela who has been styling hair for over 15 years. She will be teaching attendees how to use fabrics and scarves to adorn their locs and loose natural hair like royalty! This session is for women and men!
There is also “Make Up 101!” by Mei Ling. (I am SO looking forward to this because I know hardly anything about make up.) Mei specializes in eyebrow waxes, eyelash extensions and makeup artistry using her hands to create art and her ears to listen to hearts. Mei Ling considers herself a beauty therapist and believes her greatest success is not only showing people how to see themselves in a special way, but in being a vehicle to assist them as they live it, love it and most importantly believe it. Mei Ling will instruct attendees on how to obtain a flawless natural look that will get you out of the door quickly!
There is also the “I’m Home! Now What?” session by Mrs. Veola. Mrs. Veola has over 26 years of experience loving on hair. A sought after Natural Hair Stylist, Loctician & Educator with a passion for healthy hair and healing the soul. She has been featured by Pepsi We Inspire, Encore Magazine and Ujima Magazine to name a few. She speaks on various Natural Hair Panels, including being invited to sit on the First Natural Hair Panel at the Internationally attended SXSW in Austin, TX and her creative artistry is indicative of her calendar being booked months in advance. With her funny, heartfelt and whimsical personality, Mrs. Veola will give attendees the information and tools they need to stay home for good! From learning to love their hair/self, product knowledge, to live consultations, attendees will be certain to leave informed, empowered and inspired to live a natural lifestyle from the inside out!
Tickets are priced at $30.00 for all sessions! Discounted rates have been emailed to current clients. Tickets have already begun to sell and space is limited in order to maintain the intimate setting and more interactive experience.
