A Londoner wins the 1st Miss Natural Hair UK pageant
On Sunday 23rd July 14 women competed for the title Miss Natural Hair UK.
The event was a sell out. So much so that during the event more seating had to be provided.
Rather than the usual pageant talk, each contestant had to tell the audience what being a woman with natural hair meant to them.
The pagent was finally won by, Bashiyra from London who was presented with a modelling contract with Frame Perfect, a years subscription to Black Beauty & Hair magazine, a natural hair greeting card by Nefateri Asantewa which will feature her image, a cover shoot with Conscious Vibes magazine, a biochemical assessment by Empress Devine and a photo shoot by BQuavs.
The event was founded by Angela Small from Conscious Vibes Magazine, and from what I understand this will be the first of many. I know for one that I will be attending the next one.
The event was attended by high profile guests including Labour MP Dawn Butler who presented the winner with her crown.
