The Natural Hair Parade and Festival is the brain child of natural hair pioneer, Isis Brantley. As the first entrepreneur to own a natural braiding salon in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Isis continues to be an advocate for economic empowerment and pride within the African American community.
“The Natural Hair Parade & Festival is a celebration of natural hair.” Isis Brantley
