Annette and Melissa opened their shop in Odenton, MD back in 2011. I just happened to find them in my area while looking for beauty supply stores. What a gem I found in them! I started out as a client wearing natural styles and they revived my long lost interest in getting locs. They didn't let me think about it too long and before you know it, I started my loc journey. They are two awesome, hard-working, ambitious divas making things happen in the Baltimore metro area and beyond.
They are currently located in a gorgeous shop in Columbia, MD where they provide services such as natural hairstyles, braids and locs. You can also find these ladies at various events in the area such as For Sisters Only and at other local events. If you are a natural diva or want to be (smile), please visit these ladies at NappStar. I promise - you will NOT be disappointed.

What do you enjoy most about being natural?
I don't know any different. I've never had a perm...I think it's easier to have locs, personally. I can do more with my hair without worrying about damage.
Why do you think so many women are going natural these days?
It's becoming more accepted in the workplace.
What advice do you have for those who are considering going natural?
It's the best decision you could ever make for your hair...anything you can do with permed hair you can do with natural hair. You have a lot more options without damaging your hair.
What are a few of your recommendations for maintaining healthy, natural hair?
1. Consistency - make sure to use your products daily.
2. Be aware of all you put in your hair because natural hair is fragile.
3. Don't apply too much heat.
4. Everyone's hair is different, so make sure you find the products that work best for your hair.
As always...thanks for visiting!
Until next time...Keep It Classy!
