Stephenetta (isis) Harmon is a multi-dimensional creative who holds a plethora of titles, including that of editor, writer, performer, developer and award-winning poet/singer. At any given point, she can be found managing editorial for HypeHair.com, rocking out on stage or co-producing NYC’s premiere Tap+Cork: Brooklyn Beer & Wine Fest.
Growing up in Minnesota as a first-generation Liberian-American, she fell in love with hair at a young age, eventually becoming a go-to braider and quasi-hair expert in college (she even worked at Earth’s Beauty Supply, the Twin Cities’ first black-owned beauty chain). This led to her ever-changing standout style, collaborations with top stylists around the country and her position at Hype Hair.
Isis is also the founder of Sadiaa, the first comprehensive US-based directory highlighting black-owned hair and beauty brands, and Afrockin, a lifestyle blog celebrating the beauty of 'us'. She is currently at work on a new book of poetry set for release in Spring 2018. She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and holds a BA in English & Theatre from Hamline University.
This event will feature nationally renowned natural Hair educator, The Hair Whisperer Tendai.
Based in St. Louis, MO, Tendai explains, “I was given the name The Hair Whisperer by my clients because of my ability to get hair to respond in a positive way under the seemingly most impossible circumstances. While a successful Barber/ Cosmetologist and Keratin trained master stylist, my real passion has been in educating consumers and other stylists on proper hair care and maintenance. This passion has lead me to develop trademark products and techniques such as Heat Interval Hair Straightening, which allows natural clients to wear their hair straight with the ability to go back to their natural curl pattern with little to no pattern loss, and of course the incredible Whisper Whip Hydration Product.”
Also featuring for the first time in the Twin Cities, Natural Hair, Beauty, Enthusiast, Blogger & founder of JaiCURLS.com Jasmine Jefferson!
Based in Florida, Jai is a multidimensional powerhouse, joining our panel of guest speakers. She'll be explaining how she's created a digital beauty space where she promotes redefining beauty, nourishing Queens, and embracing melanin. Providing tips from her popular #curlygirlhackseries
