Put Your Fearless Face On

So, you know how when you get glamed up you FEEL stunning? Well, the same thing goes with fealing fearless! A big part of my holiday series which you can read more about here, is about embracing our fears. Not just on your natural hair journey but in other areas of your life as well. I don’t want us to just carry the desire to be fearless, but rather to actually take action towards relinquishing our fears and going for it! The new year is fast approaching and there is no time like the present to confront your fears, whatever they may be, and do something about them. 

So, to give you all a some encouragement and Christian inspiration, put your fearless faces on and check out this great Curly Christians read on letting your faith be bigger than your fears here.

Come Through Holiday Hair – Series & Giveaway

Hey my lovelies!

I am so excited about the holiday season and the start of a new year. My personal theme for 2016 is to be fearless in my pursuit of greatness. I think that fear has a sneaky way of getting into our hearts and minds and holds us back from achieving greatness. Time to take hold of that fear and throw it to the wind!  

So, in honor of fearlessness I’m doing a very special series. I want to encourage and inspire you all to step way outside of the box this holiday season. I want to see you beauties COME THROUGH with some unique hairstyles. Let go of the fear of what people will think or say if you rock that style you’ve been wanting to try so bad. Be creative! Be bold!

Throughout this 4 week series ending 12/31/15, I will be offering style ideas, hairstyling techniques, tips, DIY tutorials and fearless inspiration to help you all COME THROUGH in a big way for your holiday events and in life for 2016. AND, to spice things up I’ll also be doing a contest/giveaway for my lovelies that COME THROUGH! More on that to come.

There will be frequent posts so, make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel, following the blog, my Instagram and Facebook pages so you don’t miss a thing!

Introducing Curly Christians

Hello beauties!

I had the pleasure of attending the World Natural Hair Show in ATL this weekend where I introduced a concept and network I’ve started combining two of my biggest passions Jesus Christ and Curls! Visit CurlyChristian.com for more info and be sure to follow us on Instagram for daily spiritual and natural hair inspiration! Here’s a look at some of the Curly Christians branding and pics of me and some beautiful Curly Christians I met this weekend at the show.

Instagram Identity CHRISTless

I think we can all agree that there’s no shortage of beautiful people on Instagram. Whether their interest is in fashion, fitness, beauty, art or maybe a funky eclectic look at life in general, you can’t deny them. They are there, the beauties of the world. A challenge comes however, when you fail to recognize yourself as one of those beautiful people. When you are fooled into believing that the body, head of hair or face that you are envying is perfect. When you discount yourself, your beauty, your physical attributes or even your hustle! When you let the fact that you are a complete bad ass grinding every day fall by the waste side because you’ve determined that based on some random photo uploaded to an application called Instagram, you aren’t good enough. This, my friends is a direct byproduct of not knowing who you are in Christ.

As an extremely visual person I happen to really enjoy Instagram. I seriously believe the application was made for people like me. From a health, beauty, hair and makeup perspective its focus on imagery and photography inspires me every day. Whether the photos have been extraordinarily altered or not this app never fails to give me ideas that get my creative juices flowing. Much like most other Medias however, there’s another side of Instagram that seems to be challenging the self-esteem and self-worth of many individuals around the world. The answer to this identity struggle, this lack of confidence, is to build a relationship with Christ.

Once you get to know Him, how absolutely beautiful He formed you and how beautiful you still are despite what you’ve been through, then you can begin to appreciate His other creations without feeling inferior. When you grow to understand that you were fearfully and wonderfully made and discover who God has called you to be, no one can make you feel anything less than what you are, royalty.
