I’ve been attending Taliah Waajid’s World Natural Hair Health & Beauty Show for the past 6 years. I always enjoy it and usually always write a post about it. This years Spring show was extra special because I got to attend as an invited guest of Beautiful Textures. But wait. There’s more. I also got to get up close & personal with Grammy Award winning recording artist Chrisette Michele. We were all brought together for the launch of Beautiful Textures new Texture Manageability System (TMS).
Chrisette Michele came out and blew us away by singing her hit song, A Couple of Forevers.
Afterwards she thanked everyone for coming and spoke about how beautiful it is to embrace natural hair. Rocking very attractive Havana Twists herself, she took the time to signautographs and take pics with all of her fans who were lined up for the opportunity.
I was so excited to be able to talk to her privately afterwards. After pics and introductions I only had one question for her. What motivates YOU? Her answer was simple. Happiness. I expanded on the question by asking her if she could say anything to motivate young girls who look up to her what would it be? She explained how important it is to be happy with yourself and who you are. She went a bit further and talked about the little things that can make a person happy and how she finds happiness in the simplest of things.
…Whether it be changing my furniture around or just spending time in my home… I look for happiness. I think that everyone should just try to be happy with themselves. ~Chrisette Michele
She had a really sweet spirit and was very polite to everyone in the room. I really enjoyed speaking with her and appreciate 135th Street Agency for inviting me out for this amazing opportunity.
After the excitement of my celebrity interview was over off I went to enjoy the rest of the World Natural Hair Show festivities. Attending the show now is like a tradition. Its a great time to see old friends, make new contacts and stock up on natural hair goodies!
It is ALWAYS a pleasure to see these beautiful people!

Making new friends and connecting with like minded individuals is what the World Natural Hair Show is all about and it was a pleasure to meet Tawanna of All Things Curly
Overall, I’d say that The Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair Health & Beauty show was a success. I had a great time and left with sore feet and a bag full of goodies! (Stay tuned because I am going to be giving all of my goodies away right here on The Sistah Cafe!)
