Rockin Naturals You May Not Know But Should: Amia Renee
My name is Amia Renee’ I’m 29 years old from Baltimore Maryland. I’m a certified Makeup Artist trying to paint one face at a time to the top. I have been natural for a total of 22 months and counting.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
The summer of 2013 I found myself going through a heart break. I wanted to change a few things in my life and my hair happened to one of those changes. I guess you can say it was my Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale moment. I transitioned for 7 months and 3 weeks exactly.

After my bc I wore protective hairstyles for 10 months. My favorite protective style is yarn locs, which I did myself. My favorite style to wear on my natural hair is wand curls.

Actually I did give my hair a name. It’s Flo, because she flows in the wind.
