​​Ms. Carnella “Coco Natural” Harvey –  Social Worker by day Community Organizer by night!  Natural Hair Freedom is a wonderful company that hosts various educational, natural hair networking events throughout the year in Atlanta. In 2010, she started out like a lot of us new naturals did with a blog and Youtube videos.  As she continued her journey she began to notice what was missing in the natural hair community.  When designing the concept for Natural Hair Freedom all she wanted to do was create events that were more inclusive of the natural hair woman.  She wanted real connections to happen through adult interaction.  What started out as a hobby quickly turned into a business. They host brunches, product swaps, vision board parties, charity events, and fund raisers. You can join the community at www.meetup.com/Natural-Hair-Freedom



Event bags, style demos, vendors, giveaways! Vendors open at noon!
