Baby I am a…STAR (in my Prince singing voice)…for the Nappiology Expo!

October 29, 2011

Well, actually, I was on TV for about 3 seconds as a hair model…but Im going to take my 5 minutes 3 seconds how ever I can get it!

This is how the story goes…

De, who is the creator of the Meetup Group: Nappiology and founder of; has had her PR Consultant, Ramona Logan of RL Image Advantage going hard in the name of the Nappiology Expo, that is happening here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area on Saturday, November 5th.  One of the many media opportunities Ramona was able to secure was a spot on WFAA, Channel 8’s Saturday morning show “News 8 Daybreak” with Host Shon Gables

 De sent out an “all hands on deck” email to the Nappiology members because she needed hair models for this opportunity.  The spot would have a few women modeling different natural hairstyles while a commentator gave tidbits about each models natural hair journey and description of the style.  Of course, yours truly was all over it (secretly I am a reality star waiting to be discovered!!!!).  Since I promptly replied (the email didn’t even completely load before I hit reply with a “YES, I’m, in!”), I was selected to model a twistout hair style.  Four other ladies were also selected to model: locs (Keisha R.), TWA (Stephanie W.), heat trained hair (Katrena M.), and a braided style (Gerreka G.) and our commentator sported a wash-n-go (yes, De had ALL bases covered!)

I got to see behind the scenes of the WFAA Studio; I met all of the News 8 Daybreak reporters, I got to see the live shooting of the show and how fast things go, and I got to see and meet some gorgeous ladies who live in the DFW and proudly sport some of the cutest natural styles! 

Most importantly, De and her “baby” Nappiology received some great publicity for the Expo–and all in the name of networking, natural hair and fun!!!
