#NNHB2016 speaker - Felicia Leatherwood

Felicia clearly loves us so much she's returning to Lagos (and The Kinky Apothecary) for the 3rd time.

Felicia will be kicking off the event with a live big chop before giving her Loving Your Hair workshop. You don't want to miss this!

Los Angeles native Felicia Leatherwood was just 9 years old when she realized she had a flare for styling hair.  She spent many a day not only perfecting her own hairstyle, but also those of her neighborhood friends.  While her friends were playing with toys, Felicia was delving into what would soon become her career – hair care and styling.

With a degree from Santa Monica Cosmetology School, she eventually started working at the prestigious Millennium Hair Salon in Los Angeles.  Everyone who was anyone was going to Millennium to get their hair done. “That’s where I built my reputation as a personal stylist”, Felicia says.

Felicia has done natural styles on stars such as Jill Scott, Kim Coles, Will Smith, Terrence Howard, Anthony Anderson, Hill Harper (to name a few), and her work has appeared in People magazine, Essence, and InStyle, as well as in film and television. Her reputation is as solid as they come.  And though she can weave, relax, color and cut hair with the best of them, she’s known for her expertise with natural hair and for her remarkable ability to grow hair. 

Felicia has been called the “Hair Whisperer” and has been known to help not only her clients but women all over the world to understand and love their natural hair no matter what state it’s currently in!

Felicia says “I care because I realize that the state of our hair is a direct connection to how we feel about ourselves on the inside and my goal is to empower women everywhere.”
