As a longtime follower of her blog and Youtube channel, I was excited to be at Jenell B Stewart for her Healthy Living Tour Kickoff at the Houndshooth Pub in NYC.
There was a 4 women panel that included Shea Moisture Beauty Ambassador, Diane C. Bailey, Dr. Seanna-Kaye Denham of naturalhairdoescare.com, Natalege Whaley of heartsconverse.com and of course Jenell Stewart. The overall theme for this event was Mind, Body and Hair. Panelists spoke on dating, seeking professional mental help & hair tips for new and existing naturals. I liked that even though there was a panel, audience members were allowed to have their input on the different topics.
I purchased a blue, tan and pink printed maxi dress not too long before from Marshall’s and paired it with blue wedges I bought last summer from old navy.
Coincidentally, I wore my hair in a twisted bun, inspired by a protective style Jenell did on her YouTube channel, and left 2-3 twists out in the front. After spritzing with water and finger detangling, I used Paul Mitchell The Conditioner, sealed with vitamin E oil and twisted with the As I Am Twist Defining Cream. I finished the look using bobby pins to section the twists to the crown of my head.
This was an overall fun event, great for networking and interacting with fellow naturals. Visit the Healthy Living Tour online to find out what city Jenell will be traveling to next.
