The Mane Love Affair ( A Celebration of Hair)

The 1st Annual Mane Love Affair, was An Affair to Remember!!!  This event celebrated and honored the beauty of men and women loving their natural hair.  The event was hosted by Courtney Adeleye of CourtneyNaturalHair and Ebony Clark.  They treated their guests to complementary parking, dinner, sample goodie bags and a photo shoot.  The event was held at "The Loft" at Castleberry Hill. This location offered an open space with a stage, buffet, round top tables and an open bar. The red carpet was literally rolled out.  There was a professional photographer that captured each guest as they entered. Women came from all over the U.S. to attend this event.  They each had their own unique styles.  There were sleek teeny weeny afros to the long and silky.  There were so many beautiful women there that represented all complextions and hair textures.

The buffet offered a delectable selection of tasty hors d’oeuvres. Grilled shrimp, steak kabobs, crispy spring rolls and bruschetta tomatoes on garlic bread were just a few of my favorites.

During the event there was a panel discussion that consisted of 6 women celebrating their natural hair.  Each woman represented a different hair length and texture. Each woman gave interesting testimonies about their triumphs, goals and concerns about their natural hair. But as your know, when it comes to women wearing their natural hair, the subject of the stereotype of “good hair” seems to creep its way into conversation.    The overall message was to embrace your natural hair regardless of hair texture or length. The panel discussion was highly informative and inspirational. After the panel discussion, the DJ open up the dance floor and the ladies joined together laughing and doing the Cupid Shuffle.
