Meet bride-to-be, Lisa Coleman.

Hey! I am Lisa Coleman (soon to be Lisa Curtis on June 28th) born in Kansas City, raised on the East Coast (Virginia Beach, and Hartford, CT) and currently living in Washington, D.C.  I am a public interest attorney-- and I love it! I have been natural since August 29, 2009. 

I have always been obsessed with all things hair since I was a little girl. And, not just hair but hair health. When I graduated from college in 2003, the natural hair movement was just beginning. I would read posts about ladies growing their hair to bra-strap length and beyond by "stretching" their relaxer touch-ups. So, I started to do that. Just in an effort to grow my hair longer. Then when I moved to D.C. I found THE best hair stylist, and she encouraged me to go natural. I was always curious about my natural hair texture--so I transitioned with my stylist's help for a little over a year.  And, in August 2009 (after making it through a hot and humid summer in Dallas, TX) decided to do the big chop. I haven't looked back since!

How we met (and how he proposed!)

My soon to be hubby and I met when I first moved to D.C. in 2008 through a mutual friend. He was dating someone and I was completely engrossed in my first year of law school, so we started as platonic friends.  Slowly we found ourselves drawn to one another in a romantic way. I think it was because he kept crashing ladies night!  We had our first date in 2011, and the rest is history. In 2013, we welcomed our son, Langston, and we are so excited to be officially united as husband and wife.
