WHY "SHADES OF BEAUTY LIVE" WAS SO EPIC

There is no denying that black people are lit. 
Since I moved to London, I participated to tons of natural hair events. I love the sense of family and familiarity being in a room full of people who look like me. 
It is the perfect chance also to ask questions about other people's natural hair journeys, the efficacy of certain hyped products and to merely peep new fire hairstyles.
Shades of Beauty gave me something and more!

MY 2 CENTS ON THE MOVIE "NAPPILY EVER AFTER"


It was a split second decision. After turning on the hair clippers, half drunk and incredibly tired, Violet proceeds to start cutting her bleached blonde natural strands. The relief is immediate. While the clippers are gliding through her curly roots, tears are streaming down her face because she finally experienced the moment of pure freedom that she was longing for her whole life.

First of all, if you didn't have the chance to watch the movie "Happily Ever After" by film director Haifaa al- Mansour and based on the namesake novel written by the talented Trisha R. Thomas, you're wack. 
The movie tells the life of Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan), a gorgeous promising and talented black woman. Violet seemingly has everything: a beautiful house, solid relationship with a soon-to-be doctor, great job and a loving circle of friends and family. Violet is used to take care of herself. She likes to follow the latest fashion trends, always well dressed and with long, flat ironed hair.
