The Miss Natural Hair, Natural Hair Pageant was officially launched in the House of Commons, back in November 2015 with the aid of Dawn Butler, Brent Central, Labour MP. This years’ event was organised by Angela Small, of Conscious Vibes magazine. Dawn Butler was also in attendance and the competition was steep.
The event was hosted by Judith Jacob and Livingston Gilchrist, who asked the contestants some challenging questions. The contestants first appeared in day wear and after an interlude for a song by Lydia the contestants then reappeared in evening wear.
There was the spoken word by the artist Erica which was followed by an intermission to allow the judges to decide who would be crowned Ms Natural Hair UK 2016.
Bashiyra, was crowned Ms Natural Hair UK, on Sunday, 24th July 2016 at the Clayton Crown Hotel in Cricklewood. She competed against other finalists from Birmingham, Bristol, London and Manchester.
The event had a good attendance, it was entertaining and well organised. Big up Bashiyra on winning this years’ pageant.
