Hey do you have any suggestions on how to find someone that is both a colorist and a weaveologist? I either find someone who can color my natural hair or that can do a sew in and its frustrating lol. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

try getfussy they have an app for finding stylists and they probably can direct you to who you’re looking for better than i can. i know the frustration but if all else fails you can go to two separate stylists, especially if you find someone exceptional in either skill.

HEADS UP!!! I just heard about : Blackhaireverywhere.com It’s not live yet, but it’s basically going to be a directory of black hairstylists all over the US (and abroad?) and you can book appointments, leave feedback or comments and everything. I get the sense that it’s like yelp for black haircare.

This is so dope because you guys remember when I was trying to come up with a way to make a directory for stylists on the blog because of so many asks?? Well YEAHHHHHHH SHOUT OUT TO THE CREATORS OF BLACK HAIR EVERYWHERE!! for actually knowing how to put it together!

The site isn’t open to the public just now, but stylists can sign up for free and list themselves—also they’re giving away $100 to one lucky stylist (just for signing up). 

The site launches August 15th 2014 for users! Bookmark it!

This isn't pastel or anything, but I just wanted to spread the word... Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting the Navy's first female African American Pilot-- Brenda E. Robinson. Not many people know about her (I didn't), but she wants to set the record straight. She wrote a book called "The Very First Raven" and is now a motivational speaker. I would suggest that any one who wants to know more check out her website successfulattitude. com. :)
