Savannah, GA is definitely representing for the naturals! I'm not too sure about natural stylists (with the exception of braid extensions, I do my own hair). I have heard there are a few about town.

If anyone lives in the Savannah area, maybe you could suggest one?

My vote goes to NOLA. I drive over there at least once a month and have always seen a lot of naturals. Twas, braids, loose curls, tight curls, big fros. New Orleans got it all. At Jazz Fest this year, naturals were in the majority, very few relaxed Black women. It was awesome.

Not Dallas. It's relaxer and weaves everywhere. Natural hair is very scarce here but I'm going to be going to the NYC next week for the first time to visit a friend and I can't wait to see what the natural scene is like there. I'm am sooooo very excited!

My friend came to visit me in NYC last week and she called it the "Nappy Hair Capital of the World". She said it made her want to get more creative with her fro b/c so many women rock so many creative styles, cuts, and colors. I didn't realize how lucky I was until I visited Vegas and people looked at my hair like I'd grown a second head.

+1 the Golden Coast loves natural hair! Every time I leave my apt someone compliments my hair...my bf was with me the other day and he was like dang are you the natural hair homecoming queen or something!?!
++1 I'm from the SF Bay Area and now live in the Pacific NW and I've always got nothing but love for my natural hair.

Sure not Iowa. It is very hard to find a stylist; still haven't found one. Also have to order products offline because not a lot of options, def not like in NY lols. Weaves, wigs, flat irons, and relaxers are big here! I do get noticed quite a bit though!

Random thought: city size and demographics determine the amount of acceptances shown toward natural hair.
Smaller cities have less diversity than larger cities.Smaller towns everyone knows everyone, so if somebody makes a negative coment about your hair its taken more personal bc the comment was made by someone that's supposed to care about you. Whereas in a larger city people are used to seeing everything, making them more accepting toward individuals.
I also think its about the people we surround ourselves with, we can't change our family which is where most of us learned to hate our curls to begin with. But we can surround ourselves with uplifting people that only want to see us happy. I think if you have that support, the acceptance of others doesn't matter to you as much.
Steps off soap box:
That being said in my personal experience, I've found that people outside of the states are generally more accepting/ complimentary of naturals.

I can agree with this, NY has the most naturals I've ever seen in one place, it felt so good to see so many men and women rocking natural styles.

I do think that the East Coast is better based on you-tubers etc. I live in So. Cal and rock my curls and get many compliments each day. However, flat-ironed and weaves are more common than my curls.
