There have been opportunities before this for me to model, as early as the eight grade, however mommy does not like the idea of it (nakedness, objectification of women, etc.)
So how did this opportunity come about? This October will make three years since I've transitioned to natural hair (#TeamNatural! Heeey!)
So my dearest friend,who says 'I'm wasting my body', told me to like a page on Facebook called Island Naturals to get some hairspiration (I don't know about you other naturals but sometimes hair can be a pain when you don't know what to do with it.) A week later they put out a post that they're having a natural hair show launching the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale product line. I was soooo excited about that because I envied those in the U.S and UK. Then they posted again to say they needed natural hair model. I immediately applied and when I got through... Yahooooo!!!! I was super excited. Then they said "hey wanna colour your hair with our Dark and Lovely Go Intense line?" And I like yes! Most def! (I've been wanting to colour my hair for a while but did not kno what colour or brand to use, so I hopped at this opportunity.)
So last Thursday I went to the sponsoring hair salon and I chose spicy red for my hair but the stylist didn't think that was the colour for my skin tone so she decided honey blonde (will give a product review soon).
We coloured my hair, styled it and I was sooooooooo beatifullerer(copyright on that)lol. It was the change I wanted, I was so in love the "new me".
Then the hair show was Sunday afternoon. I was so anxious. "Would I wow the crowd? Am I gonna trip in my heels? Will the love my hair?"
Well I can tell you it was a great success for me and the other 13 models. The audience was WOW'd and the loved us, some were fascinated even. They wanted to stare, feel, poke and investigate our hairs, especially to see if it was all our own.
That night made me feel like #Superstar.
The only downer to the night was that the models were to receive goody bags with full sized products. What did we receive? Nada! All that was in the bag was a WEAVE brush and 2 one use sample sized products. I was UPSET!!! To be promised something and not receive it isn't the greatest feeling. The other people that attended the event had like up to 12 sample items and a t-shirt and discount coupons... Heck, I'm green with envy yo. However the organizer said she didn't "want us to leave with a bitter taste our mouths so she would try to get the products for us. So uhhhhh I guess we sit, and we wait...
Ps. I have no idea why the pictures are such bad quality on here. On my Iphone... they look great!...
