What I find fascinating about these pictures (and really any natural hair event pictures, just so you know I’m not picking on the Europeans) is this: 10 or 15 years ago almost all of them would have been wearing straightened hair. Imagine these same people, in these exact same pictures, with straightened hair. They wouldn’t have been anywhere near as interesting or unique as they are here. It’s really great to witness and be part of this paradigm shift. 🙂

Erm what rubbish?? When I was on my relaxed hair journey I was unique and interesting. Becoming natural did not do that. You can be natural and look a hot mess (just look at the Type F saga). There were a good number of attendees with straight hair that looked lovely. So what because they are not natural, they are irrelevant?

In the UK we are either African/West Indian or Mixed race. Get your facts right. Just so you know I am not picking on you. I am just saying 🙂 SMH.

They are all beautiful, but the one in the red dress and blue headwrap is stunning.

How excellent! I remember a couple years ago, I spent two months in France and most black women there were wearing really harsh perms and unnatural looking weaves. I felt like the only natural in Paris — I’m sure I wasn’t, but I didn’t meet anyone else with natural hair. These women are beautiful, I hope this is a signal of changing beauty norms like we have going on here.
