It’s that time again! ‘The images below are of CN readers at their flyyest…at work, on the town, and with the fam. Showing us all that natural hair is not a fad, it’s a way of life…an extension of our beauty! Click on the images to enlarge them:

Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!
I am new to the site and really enjoyed viewing the show and tell Friday pictures.
I never thought I would submit a pic of myself for ANYTHING, but I received several compliments on my Foxy Brown hair for Halloween, that I said “why not”.
I have wanted big hair for several years now, and I am finally able to achieve it.

I got an opportunity to meet Nene Leakes of RHOA last night and we took a pic together. I only had a couple of minutes to talk. She didn’t act all celebrity as I thought she would. She greeted the crowd, took pics, had a DJ request and actually went to the dance floor to get her party on. I’m rocking a week old Twist-N-Curl, I freshened it up with Giovanni’s Direct Leave-In Conditioner and Unrefined Shea Butter for my edges.

This is me at almost a year after my BC. Going natural was one of the best decisions of my life and I can’t wait to learn more about myself and hair.

Here are a few pics of my variation on your infamous twist-n-curl. I twist and then roll my hair to the scalp with small perm rods. I then style it to fit my mood. Thanks for the inspiration and keep it coming.

Hey Curly Nikki! My name is Nya. I am a 2nd year natural going into my third year in January. This is a pic of a twist out I did on a boring day in my dorm room at Hampton University. It was done on blown out hair. Hope you like!

Relaxing and taking ‘fro pics on a sunny day in Italy! I’m studying abroad here, and the afro definitely gets me some crazy looks, but I love the confidence I feel with it!

    Hi Nikki
    I think you look like your dad but they are both gorgeous and gave birth to a gorgeous daughter. Tell your dad welcome to the 50s I'm 55. I have been transitioning for six months. I applaud your mom because my hair is that color when I don't dye it. I have not been brave enough to do it yet. I have not done the BC yet.
    I keep looking at your site and staying encouraged by all of the beautiful sisters and their natural hair. By the way I asked God how should I wear my hair and He said wash and go. He wants to be in every area of our lives if we allow Him to be.

    @ Pretty Awesome Penguin,

    I'm studying in Perugia; it's in central Italy – 2hrs north of Rome and 2 hrs south of Florence=o) It's a really nice place to study! It's definitely a college town; there are at least 40,000 students here. I don't go to the big school here (University of Perugia, or University for Foreigners), I go to a much smaller American program, The Umbra Institute. Let me know if you'd like any more info!

  • Unknown says:

    Everyone's hair is fab and Nikki you look like your mom!

  • Pretty Awesome Penguin says:

    @Uche Where are you studying?!?

    I am working towards a minor in Italian and I will have to take the final classes to complete my major in Italy. I went my senior year in HS and LOVED IT!
    My sister is going this summer to study art there as well.

  • ChrLvsBks says:

    Nikki, you have your mom's smile. Beautiful parents, and neither look near 50 years of age. You have great genes!

    LaShara, you met NeNe. Cool! "The Real Housewives of ATL/New Jersey" is a guilty pleasure of mine. They keep me cracking up at their outrageousness.

  • SV says:

    All of you ladies look beautiful! They make me anxious to get the remaining of my relaxed hair trimmed off. I've have been scissors happy these last few weeks chopping it off bit by bit. I can't wait to see and truly experience my natural hair.

    MsKhemet you have a precious little girl. She is something else with her poses. Congrats to you for styling her hair in her that can make her appreciate her kinks.

  • Terra D says:

    I think you look like your mom when you smile! I too love your mom's hair, my grandma's hair was salt n pepper colored and she wore it in long french braids! Congrats to them, they look great.

  • Anonymous says:

    OMG! Your parents look amazingly young. Your dad looks like your brother! He's handsome too :) I think you're a mix of both, but you probably favor your dad a bit more.
    Your mom's hair is stunning!

  • Beads, Braids & Beyond says:

    Wait, wait, WAIT!!!!! That is your dad??? And he is FIFTY??? Noooo way. He looks so young. Both of your parents look very young actually. Wow! I have to agree with NewbieNaturalDiva, you have a nice mix of both parents!

    Love all of these beautiful pictures! Especially MsKhemets little diva!!!

    MsKhemet's daughter is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love her "Fresh" tee.
    Nikki, I agree you look like a beautiful mix of both parents. Congrats to them on their anniversary!

  • Afrikan Latina says:

    Nikki I LOVE YOUR MOMS HAIR COLOR! When I'm her age I would love to have that silver hair. I meant to tell you that a long time ago when you posted pics of your parents at your wedding I believe. I love Love LOVE her hair…lol

    PS. I think you favor your dad more than mommy although mommy is gorgeous.

  • NewbieNaturalDiva says:

    Nikki, you look like a mix of both parents. Your dad looks like he is your brother, not your dad. I have met your mother and she is so beautiful both inside and out. Congrats to them on 50 years! I pray me and my Mr. can last that long. We are definitely going to try!
