It’s true, an image can change the perspective of your whole day. The last 7 years of images have changed my life. During those years, I have had the pleasure of artistically styling natural hair for fashion shows, art exhibits and photo shoots in NYC, Baltimore, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Paris, Toronto, Kansas City, Houston and Vegas! The power of these experiences are impactful not only for me but also for the many individuals involved to produce them. There are are no accidents in life, only lessons. Working alongside other artists, stylists and dreamers has shaped the collection of Natural Hollywood Vol. 1. This book is a tribute to everyone who’s path some how crossed mine allowing us to bring out the best in one another with the common goal of empowering others.

This book will help with beauty and confidence.  Putting equity into this work of art will help to change and shift the standard while showing there is a movement of people who want to support and invest in this book. This social impact will help to influence advertisers and society will have to change.

Years from now when your children and grandchildren become adults the whole conversation of what is beauty will have definitely evolved because of platforms like this.

You will know that you invested in something to make this change happen. Not just in the future, but today, right now, you have the opportunity to invest in something that will advance the movement of how the world sees beauty...

This is a piece of that puzzle and thats why I call on you to join me on this journey. Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

One risk that have been identified is that I have pretty much funded everything for the company, Natural Hollywood since the beginning of it's conception and I wear mutltiple hats as a single mom, stylist to my loyal clients and serve as the creative and editor of Natural Hollywood. To help off set the work and balance out the production of this project, I have enlisted a team of supporters to handle different departments including, campaign strategy, social media managment, marketing and sponsorship.
