Hello My Lovelies!
I’ve been asked to spread the word on an incredible and important event taking place in DC next Sunday. I will be in attendance and I hope that many of Dirty Pretty Thangs family in the DC area can attend as well. Check it out:
NATURAL HAIR WORKSHOP WITH FELICIA LEATHERWOOD
Learn the best natural hair techniques from “The Hair Whisperer” Felicia Leatherwood, natural hair stylist to celebrities. Her clientele includes Jill Scott, Sanaa Lathan, Will Smith, Arsenio Hall, and others!
Whatever your hair issues are—natural hair styling, hair loss, growth, the best products—get the best answers at the workshop. Refreshments will be served.
This is also a cancer awareness fundraiser. Proceeds will be donated to Smith Center for Healing and the Arts (www.smithcenter.org) – DC’s only standalone cancer support organization. Together we can make a difference and save the lives our sisters, mothers, friends, daughters, and girlfriends.
