Nina Ellis-Hervey, also known as Beautiful Brwn Babydol, was the special guest at The Mane Source’s Kurls & Konservation Saturday, July 30th. Nina was there to meet and greet fans, as well as answer their burning questions about any and everything. The Kurls & Konversation event offered several vendors with unique beauty and accessory items and plenty of major give-a-ways including a Huetiful Steamer.
After attendees had time to mingle and peruse the vendors, Nina took the stage for a question and answer session. She addressed questions about her natural hair, weight loss, and higher education. On hair, Nina’s biggest suggestion was to condition and moisturize regularly. This was essential for her for retaining length. On weight loss, Nina lost one-hundred pounds in one year through a combination of healthy diet and exercise. Her tips were to lose weight gradually and to avoid fad diets. She stressed the importance of health as we are only given one body and should be concerned with our overall well-being first and foremost. On education, Nina recently completed work on her Doctoral degree. She greatly credits being to fund her education through scholarships. She’s witnessed there being a plethora of scholarships and grants available, but that it does require research and dedication to seek out such opportunities.
