Taliah Waajid did it again! The visionary has dominated the natural hair game for over 25 years. We all consider her “The Queen of Curly, Coily, and Natural Hair Care.” Celebrating 20 years, her company has continuously set the standard in the natural hair community. This year, Kontrolbeauty had a chance to witness the education and innovation of her works.
“Some of us dream and some of us actually follow our dreams.” – Taliah Waajid
The Taliah Waajid Annual WORLD Natural Hair, Health, & Beauty Show is an event that supports professionals and consumers to come together to learn and exchange information about natural hair care, health and beauty products, and techniques. Bringing the best workshops, over 200+ unique exhibitors, and live entertainment.
Waajid wanted an environment where individuals could come together that shared the same passion. Her passion for the natural hair industry has inspired some of the great natural hair companies we know today.
Some of those companies shared the same stage as they thanked Waajid for bringing them together. Which was one of our favorite highlights from the show “The Power Panel”.
The panel consisted of visionaries Janell Stephens of Camille Rose Naturals, Jane Carter of Jane Carter Solution, Wendi Levy of Mixed Chicks, Courtney Adeleye of The Mane Choice, Rochelle Graham of Alikay Naturals, Monique Rodriguez of Mielle Organics, Chris-Tia Donaldson of TGIN, and of course the lady of the hour Taliah Waajid. These powerful women shared their unique stories and passion for business.
With a packed out house, everyone ears were open and fully engaged. We learned it’s all about chance, commitment, and opportunities. When you take a chance you’re taking a risk in hopes to have a favorable outcome. As Taliah Waajid would say, “take chance and be inspired.”
“If you put average in something you’ll get average. If you put mediocrity, you’ll get mediocre. The presentation is everything. I have to get you to purchase the product. I have to get you to come back” – Courtney Adeleye of The Mane Choice
The Power Panel also gave us a chance to understand how relatable these women are. With touching stories from their past to amazing outcomes now, we are grateful to say it was truly an amazing experience.
“Don’t let your current circumstance dictate your future” – Monique Rodriguez of Mielle Organics
These women touched the hearts of everyone in the room. Kontrolbeauty is glad we were apart.
