Felicia Leatherwood Loving Your Hair

With celebrity hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood, loving your hair means more than just a hairstyle. Even though her high profile client list consist of famous faces such as Jill Scott, Sanaa Lathan, Kim Coles, Will Smith, Terrence Howard, Anthony Anderson, etc., she is dedicated to empower women of color about their natural hair inside out.

In her words:

“I care because I realize that the state of our hair is a direct connection to how we feel about ourselves on the inside and my goal is to empower women everywhere.”

Felicia is not just a stylist, but an educator of healthy habits and healthy hair. Her Loving Your Hair With Natural Care Workshops are designed around the many questions that people ask her about hair care, products, styling, and so on. Below is a list of the techniques, information, and the experience you will encounter at her workshops:

I care because my passion is, what I call “Hair Empowerment”…I talk to people and empower them through their hair. We have to start speaking kind to our hair and not cursing it! Hair is only the outer layer of our inner beauty.
So when you feel good about yourself, it reflects every part of you, so your hair can’t help but to flourish…


I had the pleasure and opportunity to sit down with Felicia and what a beautiful person she is inside and out. I love the fact that she strives to encourage and uplift women through her talents and love of natural hair care and styling. We should all find peace with ourselves and truly love the person that God has created within. Hence, Felicia Leatherwood uses her platform to help others strip away the negativity to bring out the beauty starting with hair:

Whether your hair is weaved, permed, loc’d, braided or just in it’s natural state of kinkism, I invite you to start Loving Your Hair with Natural Care!

Let me show you how.

  • I’m Ursula. Great article. I was a fan of Felicia’s work long before I met her. I’ve been blessed to know her because she has referred several clients to me and I’m greatful. She is not only super talented but a really cool person.
