One natural hair meme that I’m sick of hearing is the oft-repeated and completely false idea that natural hair is unprofessional, or that being natural can cost you a potential job. Around the world there are doctors, lawyers, accountants, executives, politicians and CEOs who proudly wear their hair as they will, and are respected for the abilities regardless of their hairstyle.
So here’s the beginning of something new – Natural Professional, a monthly blog series brought to you by Curly Nikki and Afrobella. We’re looking to celebrate and share the stories of professional women in the workplace who are proud to wear their natural hair. Nikki put out a call for nominations back in January, and now we’re joining forces and putting the wheels into motion!
Are you a Natural Professional? Do you know someone who fits the description? Then please send an e mail to me using the subject like “Natural Professional,” or to firstname.lastname@example.org using ‘SuperNatural Saturday’ as the subject line. Please include the nominee’s name and a reliable email address.
Can’t wait to see your e mails!
