One on One w/ Felicia Leatherwood | May 21, 2017

We are switching up the format with a one-on-one conversation that gives you the opportunity to hear first-hand from those who have made a positive impact within the curl community and have a unique story all their own. It offers the chance to dive a little deeper and get to know the person behind the name - and their backstory - with the hope that you will leave inspired, feel empowered and discover something new. Stories will be shared, experiences told, and then it’s your turn to ask the questions with a Q+A to follow. Our first guest is the uber-talented Felicia Leatherwood.


With over 26 years of experience, Felicia Leatherwood is the world’s leading celebrity stylist and inspirational beauty speaker in regard to natural hair. She conducts hair care workshops for audiences around the globe under the brand and slogan “Loving Your Hair with Natural Care”. The Loving Your Hair brand of workshops is in response to the thousands (literally) of questions received from people desperate for answers about their tresses. Felicia’s solutions and work have garnered her the “Hair Whisperer” title, as she is known for miraculously restoring health, beauty and vitality to her clientele’s hair. Leatherwood’s styles have been featured on such high profile acts as Oscar Award nominees Viola Davis (actress) and Ava Duvernay (“Selma” director), megastar Will Smith, Grammy winner/R&B superstar Jill Scott, “Iron Man”/”Empire” star Terrence Howard, “Mad Men” star Teyonah Parris, “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson, “The Color Purple” composer and Grammy/Tony Award nominee Brenda Russell, Maybelline supermodel Tomiko Fraser, actresses Nicole Ari Parker, Kim Coles and Kimberly Elise as well as a host of entertainment executives, rising stars and beauty entrepreneurs. Her magazine cover and editorial spread exposure include Vogue, Variety, Essence, Elle, Ebony and more.

Her candid delivery has made Felicia an audience favorite among today’s leading hair experts and speakers. Whether online, on FOX’s hit show “The Real” or in person, Leatherwood’s message is rooted in the idea of holistic health and fundamentally loving yourself --- a true inside out approach to hair care. It is from these experiences that the idea of a specialized hair solution began to form.
