I was bored with my relaxed tresses. I was also annoyed with the process of a relaxer. My mother and husband were my true motivators. My mother, a breast cancer survivor was a bonus. Watching my mother lose her hair not by choice prompted my decision, which led me to “BIG CHOP”.
I simply keep my hair moisturized at all times. My tresses love water and oil. I
love a big “Juicy” twist out, Braid out and up-do! When I say “Juicy” I mean a
well-moisturize twist out
The idea came from watching countless YouTube videos on Natural Hair Meet-ups. I also wanted to be apart such a powerful movement. This Meet-up is not just about hair, it’s about embracing your beauty inside and out.
This event is full of show and tell. It will show women that Natural Hair is Beautiful. It will also reveal the truth about going Natural and how empowering it is. I want women to no longer have a misconception about Natural Hair This is a Natural Hair Event, however it’s for all women to take the information and make their own “hair” decisions. Natural Hair is here to stay. We have the information, products, encouragement, how-to-tutorials, more Natural Hair Stylist to keep inspiring other women.
- Kudos to LaToya Miles and her partner for bringing this event to the Magic City! Great things are on the horizon Birmingham… just stay tuned!

The page that many men desired to reach and the page that many women desired to be on is the, ‘JET Beauty of the Week’ page.
The Chicago’s Johnson Publication Company published magazine was founded in 1951 by entrepreneur John Harold Johnson.
The Johnson Publication gave men the opportunity to drop their jaw and African American women the opportunity to show off their beauty to the world.
Some of the most recent Sweet Home Alabamians that have been given the opportunity were Kenyetta ‘Sway’ Smiley, Talon Rawls, and Shanel Nelson.
Raised in Montgomery, Sway started modeling during her teenage years and became part of an agency out of Atlanta at the age of 19. She has moved up in the modeling field to an assistant, fashion show coordinator, runway walk trainer, mentor, inspirational public speaker and event host. Sway now has her own modeling agency, Sway’s Way Modeling Group which is located in Montgomery. She attended Faulkner University where she received her bachelor’s degree in business. Looking up to the inspirational model, Tyra Banks, Sway found herself having similar characteristics. “She’s a black women, doing things her way, and as a child she was not looked at as the most pretty girl being because she was overly tall and very skinny, (now add glasses to that picture and you got me as a child).” Sway describes the best characteristics of a model should be: “personality, their own sense of style, ability to adapt quickly and take criticism.”
Talon stared modeling at the age of 13, but had no clue that something she seen as a hobby would grow into something she still continues to pursue. Staying close to her home, Montgomery, Talon attends Auburn University of Montgomery. Talon was intending to bring something different to JET Magazine, “I was curious to see if i could make it, I never seen anyone in the JET with an exotic look and tattoos so i was eager to make that happen.” Talon is one of many models whose home agency is Sway’s Way Modeling Agency. Talon advises anyone who wants to be a model to always: “Be professional, Speak with confidence, and always find ways to be on top of your game from the next model such as eating right, working out, and do your HOMEWORK research other famous models.”
Also from Montgomery, Shanel attended Auburn University where she obtained three degree. Starting to model at the age of 18 and now also being part of the Sway’s Way Modeling Group, Shanel’s dream goal since the age of 4 was to be a model. “I have been prancing and prissy since I was 4 years old, I was waiting to get taller, but learned there are other parts of the industry that I could excel in. Once I explored those opportunities I knew I was a force to be reckoned with!” Shanel looked up to the beautiful Halle Berry, finding that she had similar body structure. Anyone that wants to be a model but doesn’t feel they have the ideal model image, Shanel inspires them to, “find your look and rock it! This industry is about being unique in every way and standing apart from the next beautiful person!”
JET Magazine is still up and running as it did 60 years ago. If anyone wants to gain some inspirational knowledge about a chance to chase a dream in the field of modeling, these ladies and few other Alabama JET Beauties also JET magazine fashion photographer Michael Carson and some of the fashion and entertainment industry leaders from Alabama and Georgia will be at the Power & Beauty: JET Beauty Edition event. The event will be held at the Highland Conference Center in Birmingham, Saturday June 25, 2011 at 9 p.m.
Pierre is best known for his multiple appearances on BET’s Comic View and movies such as BAPS and How to Be a Player.
