We are all used to magazines showcasing the beauty of strong, healthy, luxurious flowing hair or the sass and pizzazz of a short pixie cut on some of our most notable starlets. Rarely do we get a glimpse of a glamorous natural look, until now.
In Ebony magazine’s July Collectors edition, Natural goes Glam in the spread, Curl Encounters, featuring GirlTD's own fashion and television blogger, novelist and freelance writer, GirlD, Rainy Day Diva, Denise Johnson. And no matter which name she’s going by, or whatever she’s doing, (her hectic schedule requires that she wears many hats), thanks to Ebony, she’s doing it in better style.

It was four days before the actual photo shoot where the Rainy Day Diva, Denise received the email from Ebony Beauty and Style Editor Elaine Welteroth that would affirm the transformation of her mindset, from the creamy crack to natural, un-relaxed hair. And it was this opportunity, this showcase to demonstrate how four years ago, the conversion to embrace her natural curls would not detract glamour and grace. Denise learned that the sensuality and flexibility of one’s natural hair need not be sacrificed by her renewed choices.
Using style and color expertise from the Devachan Salon, specifically, “The Color Doctor” Shari Harbinger, Color Director, world renown make-up artist to the stars, Lucky Smyler, regal subjects, great lighting and photographer Ryan Bevens, the Rainy Day Diva and two additional natural hair enthusiasts were transformed. Beautiful before, fabulous now….what a difference a day makes. “A lifetime….” says GirlD. [The day affirmed my difference for a lifetime and a lifestyle…]
