Up Close & Natural - Interviewing women with natural hair in the workplace

Natural hair blogger of Love, Life & Curls talks about having natural hair in the workplace as an intern.


As an aspiring news reporter, while in college numerous times I've been told that I won't make it with my hair being natural. 
Many times people say that natural hair isn't professional, but who made that rule?  I must admit that when I first heard this in undergrad and when I started my first internship at a news station, I always tried to pull my hair back into a neat bun. After while, when I really thought about what it was to be myself, I let go of the buns and flaunted the curls.

My hair doesn't make me less of a reporter or less of a college instructor. My students still learn and the community will still be informed of the news story. So I refuse to let anyone tell me that because my hair can get a little wild that I won't or can't be successful. It's up to Black women to change that perception in society.


We want to interview you!

Lookbook: Headscarf with Casual Beach Outfit


I love wearing headscarves during the summer--especially at the beach where the sun can be very drying for natural hair. Try wearing this beach inspired outfit with bangles and a cute beach tote.

How to Tie a Bun Headscarf



A bun headscarf is ideal to wear during all seasons, especially in the summer and winter as the elements are the harshest on natural hair. I like wearing a headscarf while at the beach in the summer. It prevents the sun from drying out my natural hair!
