Curly Girls Night Out: Cool Styles + Hot Hair Trends

Nothing better than Jettasetting with a room full of curly girls at an event – it is a rare experience. Creme of Nature’s Hair Color Crush Meetup in Chicago gave me precious time with other lovers of beauty PLUS I scored some hair care tips and trend insight from top hair bloggers.  

It was like diving in a pool of inspiration, and emerging with “going there with my hair” ideas that I could actually pull off!  Much love to photographer Ven Sherrod for these fab photographs (except the selfies – those are all me, LOL!).

Here are some of my favorite style moments and some inside scoop on hair care, trends and, gasp (!), how to combat shrinkage:

I asked Ms. Vaughn how to stop shrinkage. She was quick to point out that our shrinking hair is our super power, as it allows us to do cool styles.  Gotta say, never thought of it that way….

…but for those days we want to stop shrinkage and sport our hair long and/or big she suggests the Creme of Nature Gloss & Shine Mist. She said it helped her keep her style while vacationing in Puerto Rico…

…and speaking of products, here are some tips from Teneya Gholston, Director of Marketing, Creme of Nature on keeping your hair hydrated during dry and/or cold weather…

 

 

We also had the opportunity to chat with Africa Miranda (CON ambassador) about 2015 hair trends – **HINT** it is all about bold color and clip in hair accents so you can do you (and then some) boo…without all the sewing, glueing and such..

 

 

 

Now back to the style portion of our program – Oh MY yasss….
