MYAVANA's Taste Of Texture Is A Celebration Of Hair And Community

MYAVANA is bringing hair love and education to you in the form of an exciting nationwide tour. The Taste of Texture brunch is coming to a city near you, and it boasts real conversations about Black women and our hair while also celebrating what makes our curls unique. MYAVANA's founder Candace Harris, along with brand ambassador Snowfall and P-Valley actress Gail Bean, stopped in Atlanta recently and hosted an elegant brunch full of melanin and style at Buckhead's 5Church. Guests mixed and mingled among one another while sipping flavorful mimosas and choosing from an assortment of delectable brunch food from the buffet. Candace and Gail also conversed with attendees, making everyone feel welcome.


MYAVANA is a beauty tech company "with the aim of revolutionizing personal and professional textured hair care through data driven science and technology." Women can take a hair assessment, backed by AI, to determine which products are best for their hair. If that's not enough, women can also choose from a hair analysis kit or simply get a virtual consultation from one of their hair consultants. However, Taste of Texture brings the conversation about hair to you.

"The mission of Taste of Texture is to create community and connection through intimate, in-person experiences that facilitate deep cultural conversations about our hair journeys and how we evolve to become our authentic selves," Candace shared with xoNecole. "Our hair parties brings a fun, celebratory, safe, supportive platform for deep discussion around our challenges, traumas, and the victories of embracing our textured hair through the lens of our shared cultural experiences."

During the event, many women shared their personal stories about their hair, which undoubtedly resonated with other women in attendance. Gail also shared her own stories about her hair as an actress in Hollywood. She explained how she would take down her braids before going into auditions and wanting to experiment with hair dye, but was afraid. Well, that was until now. "My hair journey, a phrase I would say now is self-love," she beamed.
