Napturals at VCU
VCU naturals, take note: onelifeonelovexeboni is thinking about starting a natural hair club on campus. Message her or reblog to be in touch!
If there was a natural hair club at VCU, would you join?
We would share and compare:
- thoughts and experiences thus far
- and other things about being a curly girl at VCU
If you’re not a VCU student, check out the Naturals RVA meetup.

to school! Both U of R and VCU are headed back to school this week, but you don’t have to be starting a new semester to love the feel of fall just around the corner. We’re so ready for fall foliage, cool breezes, and freshly-sharpened pencils. In honor of a rapidly-approaching September, we’re unleashing our inner geek! Here are some current looks we love.

We have a new stylist!
We’re incredibly happy to welcome stylist Carrie Jo to our team.
Carrie Jo is a Richmond native who has just returned after 6 years in New York City. Carrie is a graduate of VCU’s School of the Arts, where she studied art education and painting. Today Carrie considers hair her canvas; since launching her career she has worked as a stylist, colorist, and hair and makeup artist for fashion and editorial work. Carrie has over six years of experience behind the chair and two as an instructor of cosmetology at one of Manhattan’s top beauty schools.
Carrie is an excellent fit for clients who would like to customize their cut or style to their unique face shape or features. She works closely with clients to achieve these goals and to craft looks ranging from classic to edgy that are easy to replicate outside the salon. Carrie has particular mastery of dry cutting, natural hair, textured styles, and balayage color technique.
Also, she’s adorable.
it’s a great time to be an artist in Richmond. Congratulations to the recipients of the 2012-2012 VMFA Visual Arts Fellowships; to filmmaker Sonali Gulati, who has received a creative capital grant; and to Sonya Clark, who has received an impressive grant from United States Artists.
The links above will direct you to details about the awards and of information about only a few of the many remarkable artists that make Richmond a great place to be creative. I especially recommend checking out Sonali Gulati’s work. She is a remarkable filmmaker and was an eloquent advocate for VCU’s LGBTQ population in 2010, when the safety of this community in our state at at our schools was perhaps at its most precarious. We’re lucky to have her working and advocating locally.
