It is with disappointment that Della Marie and Aleka announce that the Kinky Hair Connection III, Natural Hair Meet Up has been postponed. In 2015 we created a new platform in Grand Rapids, MI to unite naturals and celebrate our unique and beautiful crowns. We had great support from the natural hair community locally during the first two years of the event; however, to date, ticket sales are not what we projected. Aleka and Della Marie believe in producing quality events that will be beneficial and valuable to all involved and unfortunately, we did not feel confident moving forward with the Kinky Hair Connection III on Saturday, November 11, 2017. However, please note that the Kinky Hair Connection WILL BE BACK. We strongly believe that this event is necessary and that there is a community of people who share our vision of creating a space to celebrate kinky, coily, loc’d, textured, and curly hair in Grand Rapids, MI. Aleka and Della Marie will be meeting behind the scenes in the coming weeks to revisit and revise our model, as needed, and reintroduce you to a bigger and better event in the future. We ask for your continued support for future events and genuinely thank those who have supported our vision in any way since the beginning.
Please note that everyone who purchased tickets and submitted vendor payments will be refunded in their original form of payment by Wednesday, November 8, 2017.
Della Marie Levi and Aleka C. Thrash,
Kinky Hair Connection Co-founders
