NCJ is on the Road!!!!

Hello Chic-istas!!! I am so excited to announce that NCJ is crossing the U.S border, heading North, and going to Toronto Canada!!! I am so excited about this opportunity and as always, I am so grateful for the doors that God has been opening for me! 2014 is certainly starting off with a bang! Glory to God!!

Here are the deets:

Yemi, the creator of Shakara Natural Hair Tips, has invited me to conduct a workshop on the Learning to LOVE your Natural Texture with the L.O.C Method. When I received her email and call,  I was actually surprised that she even knew of me, my previous workshops, or my articles on the importance/benefits of the L.O.C Method, but that's my God and His favor! Well back to the details... I am so excited about this event and I am completely thrilled to meet naturals from the Ontario area and beyond. Wow! God is so Good! I can't believe that NCJ is making its way out of the confines of the USA!! Even as I typed that line, a huge, joyous, kid-like smile etched across my face!

One of the most exciting parts of this event is the fact that I am sharing the stage with Celebrity Natural Hair Stylist, Felicia Leatherwood. If you don't know who she is, you need to Google her, like right now! She is a natural hair styling Queen and styled actress Teyonah Parris' gorgeous, often duplicated Red Carpet Look. When I found out that she was going to be there, I almost lost it...lol! I have been following this amazingly talented woman's work since that red carpet smash hairstyle hit and fell in love with her creativity, love, and care for natural hair! I can't believe that we are speaking at the same event... I have so many questions to ask her, I just want to stand next to her so some of her awesome-ness and creativity can rub off on me. LOL!  Can you tell how exciting I am!! I don't even care how cold it is in Toronto! I'm ready to go!! :)

At my workshop, I will discuss how to truly learn to love your natural hair texture and the ins and outs of the L.O.C Method. Naturalistas present will learn about my hair journey, my struggle to accept my kinky coily hair, the benefits I received from using the L.O.C Method, a great visual demonstration on how to do the L.O.C method on various texturesand  curl patterns, and finally a tutorial on some no fuss hairstyles for novice naturals.  I am also excited that my position as an Alikay Naturals Brand Ambassador(did I tell you about that?), will allow me to do giveaways of some amazing natural hair products to help workshop attendees try the L.O.C Method as soon as they get home!! Yaaaayyyyy for Alikay!!!! I am so excited!!!! :)

If you are a Chic-istas who lives in the Toronto area or has ever traveled to the Ontario Area, please leave a comment telling me about the must see/go places, restaurants, and tourist attractions that my hubby and I should try to fit in that weekend.
