Voyage to Beauty

Paris Noir

Our love affair with Paris, France is long standing! Its cultured French citizens have had a deep appreciation for #Black & #Brown musicians, writers, artists & models of color since the World War years. Consequently, Paris has been one of our top jet setting destinations for haute couture travel. But what is a Dusky Diva to do when she needs a quick beauty fix while in the world’s most fashionable city? Look no further, our resident Travel Expert and #BonnieGirl Travelista Teri has you covered! Here is her Voyage to Beauty guide for Paris, France...the City of Fierce:

Natural Hair Academy:

The natural hair movement has stormed the City with its own Academy! The annual event brings together natural hair Enthusiasts and Experts for a full day conference of tutorials & workshops in both French and English. This Academy is where you go to stay in the know for maintaining a gorgeous mane. In fact, Women all over France are posting across their Social Media, "J'y serai!" for "I will be there" when referencing the Natural Hair Academy taking place this year on Saturday, March 21, 2015.
