When Donna and I first started doing these natural hair shows in 2010, I wrote down a list of people I’d like to come speak at our events. One of the names on the list was Anu Prestonia.
So each year since 2010, I’ve reached out to her religiously requesting her presence at our event. Each year she graciously declined as our event typically always fell on the same weekend a huge show came to New York that she participates in every year.
Fast forward to 2016. Same routine, I reached out, all the while waiting to receive the gracious decline. And then it happened, she said YES!
I am so honored to announce that Anu Prestonia, founder of Khamit Kinks and natural hair pioneer has joined the Hair She Grows event lineup.
Her workshop The Beauty & Magic of Botanical Elements for Your Hair & Your Life will certainly leave you wanting to spend more time with her.
Her salon, Khamit Kinks, has been known to draw in celebrity clients like Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey, Terry McMillan, Angela Bassett, Lenny Kravitz, Queen Latifah and many others. Anu has also been instrumental in popularizing natural styling and hair care throughout the United States and several countries around the world. Decades ago, she created various braiding techniques and named many styles still worn proudly today, including, Single Braids, Swing Braids, Goddess Braids, Senegalese Twists, and Baby Curl Twists, just to name a few.
In the winter of 2012 Anu launched her line of natural hair and body care products – Anu Essentials
Don’t miss out on the chance to connect with this industry leader. If you haven’t gotten your ticket for the event yet, you are just playing. After this blog post drops we might just sell out.
