Naturally Fierce Feature: Angel

My name is Angel. I was born, raised and still live in Los Angeles. The hair goes where I go; the office, the gym, the dance studio, restaurants and everywhere in between. How long have you been natural? Almost 25 years (my whole life)!

At first, my being … [Read more...]

Naturally Fierce Feature: Kennedy

My name is Kennedy!! I'm born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. I got my first perm in the 4th grade! My grandmother actually snuck and took me. I used to complain allllll the time about how big my hair was and how I wanted it to look like the other girls in my class (straight). My mom came home and was pissssseedddd! Lol. She never was a big "hair do-er" so she got over it pretty fast after she realized how manageable my hair had become after the perm. Since then, I had been receiving a perm at least … [Read more...]
