Hairspiration: Felicia Leatherwood

(Feature image taken from www.felicialeatherwood.com) We spoke about natural hair being professional at our last #HairCare 101 event and watched a video clip in which Felicia Leatherwood, a natural hair stylist sometimes referred to as the Hair Whisperer, spoke about the importance of embracing our hair in its natural state. We absolutely love Felicia Leatherwood and all that she stands for.  She works with hair and not against it. Representation matters and it’s great that we are now starting to see more natural hair at glamorous occasions.  At Afrocenchix, we acknowledge that women reserve the right to wear their hair however they choose,  but at the same time, we want women to know that wearing their hair as it grows out of their scalp — be it coarse, thick, thin, gravity-defying, free-spirited etc. — is an option. Can you relate to having to go to an event such as a wedding or job interview and needing to get your hair done? “Done” meaning getting it pressed/relaxed/hidden because your hair in its natural state is not considered professional or glamourous. We beg to differ; we are firm believers that if we are going to wear our hair natural we can wear it natural to all these fancy events and still feel beautiful. This is one of the reasons both Joycelyn and Rachael chose to rock their kinky textures on their wedding day. Felicia has styled natural hair for celebrities going to glamorous occasions. She has worked with inspirational women such as Issa Rae, Teyonah Parris, Ava DuVernay, Yara Shahidi, Skai Jackson, Jill Scott and many more. Take a look below for some of our favourite styles she has created.    Only the best! Face always on point! And I love what she does with my hair! #naturalhairstylist #naturalhair A post shared by Skai ♛ (@skaijackson) on Feb 9, 2017 at 8:15pm PST     I'm late in posting this one, but I have to say...the wives had it on lock at the SAG AWARDS @ryanmichelleb and @alvinwithan_a beautified the red carpet and killed it with their talented nominated husbands. I had fun created these red carpets looks on them. Thanks ladies for letting me play in your #naturalhair👍🏾. #Locs #naturalhairstyles #hairbyfelicialeatherwood #kinkycurly #redcarpet #updo A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Jan 31, 2017 at 11:19am PST   Issa Rae for @nymag and @vulture. #hairbyfelicialeatherwood #besuretowatchinsecure #hbo #4chair #naturalhair #kinkycurly #teamnatural #celebritieswithnaturalhair #washNgo A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Nov 15, 2016 at 7:52am PST   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Oct 20, 2016 at 2:03pm PDT   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Oct 7, 2016 at 7:37pm PDT   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Sep 21, 2016 at 6:13am PDT   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Sep 17, 2016 at 7:26am PDT   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Feb 5, 2016 at 8:53pm PST   A post shared by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair) on Jan 1, 2016 at 10:42pm PST   My favorite Barbie @teyonahparris .
