Essence Festival Brought The Best Curls & Braids To NOLA
For the 25th year in a row, Black women flocked to New Orleans to attend
Essence Festival, a three-day experience made to celebrate Black culture, history, and entrepreneurship. The event brought out the best in music (with headliners including
Missy Elliott,
Mary J. Blige, and Pharrell Williams), the
chicest fashion, and — lots — of hair and makeup inspiration.
