“Natural in the City” is a docu-series giving a real look inside one of the most prominent social centers in Black women’s lives – the hair salon.  As scores of Black women across the country ditch hair relaxers and sport their curly natural coifs, they are often left with a major question:

 

What does it mean to truly be “natural”?

 

Natural In The City The Series Go behind the scenes of a blossoming hair salon as it struggles to challenge stereotypes in both the hair and business world.

 

Takeisha Berry-Brooks, owner of A Natural Affair Beauty Lounge in Memphis, Tennessee has defied the odds of her background to build a thriving enterprise and movement right from her hometown, which at times can be culturally suffocating.   Follow her as she sets her sights on building her enterprise across the Mid-South, raising her daughters with the spoils of her sacrifice, and keeping trust and love with a husband constantly on the road.  And meet her staff, who may have their own ideas about how to run the show and get ahead.
