Fab Festival Hair!

July 23, 2013

Happy Tuesday y’all!

The International African Arts Festival in Brooklyn took place over four gorgeous (but HOT!!) days and brought out all types of gorgeous natural beauty. Although I am usually super eager to attend festivals, fairs and other free events to take in some culture, I don’t do so very often… weird, right?! Well, for that very reason, I decided to attend two days of the festival, the first and last, to take in as much as I could {see my fashion pics from day one here}. Of course, I had my Nikon in tow with the goal of capturing some of the beautiful hair I was sure to see as I roamed Commodore Barry Park. I wish I could’ve gotten a lot more shots but I’m happy with the ones I DID get! Take a gander…
