DETROIT - Naturally FLYY Detroit returns with their signature event Saturday, June 2, 2018, 1 p.m.-8 p.m. at The Artist Village Detroit, 17340 Lahser Rd. Detroit, MI 48219. WE ROCK DOPE HAIR! A Natural Hair Experience, is Detroit's Largest gathering of Black women, natural hair and style. Celebrating its 8th year, Naturally FLYY Detroit takes pride in promoting positivity, true authenticity and creative freedom in their Detroit community and beyond. The sister team and founders, Charice "EttaFLYY” Thomas and Jennifer Thomas, have pushed positive programming that celebrates the beauty of black women, starting with their hair. Naturally FLYY also gives black women the platform to own their individual beauty and shine.

“We’re not taught to embrace what naturally comes out of our head. Naturally FLYY Detroit is some sort of a permission slip,” says EttaFLYY. “It gives people a small gift to say, ‘You can be who you are.’”
