The Masters Brunch 2013

As a prelude to the The Master Pioneer Awards, on August 24th, beautiful Master Natural Hair Stylists broke bread with Natural Hair Bloggers to share experiences and visions for the future. As expected, there were laughs and tears of joy as women came together in a positive and uplifting manner, dressed in white, adorned with natural crowns.  The Master Pioneer Award Ceremony will take place at the Brooklyn Museum on Sep. 14th at 6p. The Master Pioneer Award is the first award ceremony dedicated and committed to honoring and paying tribute to the TRUE pioneers and trailblazers of the Natural Hair Care Industry. Tickets may be purchased at  www.masterpioneeraward.eventbrite.com while they last!
