Natural Hair Styling: The Only Industry Where You Expect Great Service Without Paying For It
 

Hi, my name is Simone (raises hand) and I am addicted to partings, braids, twists, combs, curls, waves, coils, kinks, accessories and all things Afro. This is one of the hardest pieces I have had to write because when it comes to Afro hair I can talk for days…seriously, I can but today I will spare you and try to be brief as we talk about the importance of RESPECT in this profession.

Amara La Negra: The Reason Why It Is Important To Promote Self Validation
2017 has been a year of harvest. I loved and was proud of Rai-Elle’s talent and look. Watching her on X-Factor felt warm and satisfying because seeing a young woman like her on the telly does not just happen.  It’s the fruit of tireless efforts and work around one main idea: normalising black features, in a society where, for a long time, one had to “tame” ones African phenotypes to fit in the “civilised western world”.

How I Learnt To Embrace My Short Natural Hair
I thought it would be interesting to share with you what I have been doing to embrace my natural hair during its short stage. I have been natural all my life, but my hair hasn't always been healthy. I'm not sure how old I was when my mum said I was old enough to do my own hair. It wasn't daunting or scary at all, that was only because I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

On Being Black In A Country That Does Not See Colour: What I Was Told When I Went Teaching With My Head (Half) Wrapped
I have recently moved to France France. I say France France because I am from what we call overseas territories, a 2.0 French colony, which is technically France in the Caribbean with all the contradictions and uneasiness that this status can cause in the 21st century … But I digress. I am now in France France, in a peaceful and bourgeois neighbourhood with beautiful houses, gardens, clean pavements etc. Of course, I stand out with my big hair, dark skin and love for Ankara, but that is ok. I knew beforehand that I was moving into a “white” environment and the chances of me being the “black lady”, were pretty high, but I did not mind.
