I do. I went to a small business seminar tonight, and as usual surveyed the room for naturals.
Here's the breakdown:
The sista taking registrations at the door had curly natural hair, probably between shoulder and bra strap length when stretched. Sista in the front row had locs, a bit past shoulder length. Some were dark brown, some copper colored. Sista behind her had what appeared to be a perm, and the young lady next to her had what looked like a press and curl. Shoulder length, with flipped up curls. Behind her, sista with dark brown shoulder length locs, auburn tips, in a ponytail. Shaped up around the front. Next table. One lady whose hair I don't remember, next to her a sister with a perm. Behind that, sister with afro puff. Maybe three or four inches long.
In front of me, a lady with two strand twists that are probably about six inches or more when stretched. Then me, two strand twists about three inches long. Behind me, a sista with locs, pulled up into freeform bun with the ends of the locs sticking out - my old favorite style. Behind her, brother with long locs, front half tied back, mid back length. There was one more person in the class whose hair I didn't see. The teacher had what appeared to be a weave - a coily afro textured weave. ;-) Do you see a pattern here?
I love it, and yes, I am a bit obsessed.
