4. Styling

Once you know your hair type and you have the products you need, the next step is to go ahead and get to styling! Pull out the flexi-rods, curlformers, perm rods and hooded dryers! If there’s only one gifted hairstylist, then you might as well turn it into a salon.

Pull out some magazines and nail polish and wait for your turn in line! Don’t forget to show your stylist friend extra doses of gratitude! Or, if you’re feeling bold and want to try out a style, who better to try it on than your best friend? She’ll forgive you if it ends up looking a hot mess and you can laugh about it later. Practice makes perfect!

5. Venting Sessions

At some point in the night, it’s going to happen. You are going to talk about your hair journeys and the struggles you’re facing. This is when you may need to pull the tissues out because it’s going to get deep. Encourage your sisters and let them know that they are beautiful no matter what their work environment or even some family members may say. This is the time to support each other and hear more about why your sister decided to wear natural styles in the first place. She could have a deep story that you never knew. All it takes is for the right setting for that story to be pulled out.

6. Photoshoots/ Videos

Okay, now the real fun can commence. You’ve been waiting to snap your selfies all night. It’s time for a full out photoshoot! You know those images you’ve seen on your timeline with the group of curlfriends all rocking their ‘fros.


Go the extra mile and bring some makeup and extra clothes too. This is a time for YOU. You don’t have to worry about the kids, about work, or about school. Have the time of your life! You deserve to just be free every once in a while.

What would you like to see at a hair party?

      Jessica Myers Young I have no issues with lighter skinned women, but I think the photo should have reflected all our beautiful shades and as you stated, different hair textures.

      Now, if it would’ve been ALL ”chocolate sisters”, you wouldn’t have said a thing! the hate is real with you.

    3. Pamela Stokes Hairston

      Keiota Jackson no I would have said the exact same thing. As I stated in my comments above, we come in all different beautiful colors and I think the photo could have reflected that. No hate here. I love everyone…. Even you.

      Keiota Jackson I agree with Pamela! As a woman of color, until all natural hair textures, all skin tones and all body types are represented then there is no true sisterhood

    I was actually thinking about doing this exact thing but with a few differences in the suggestions listed above.

    Sounds great, i am into making my own hair products though.
    I am learning.

    What an awesome idea especially if you know a lot of natural sisters. In my area most ladies do not relax their kids’ hair so everytime we meet they always ask for advise about their little girls hair.
