Q & A
Debra Hare-Bey, what was the inspiration for International I Love Braids Day?
My inspiration came from my passion, love and respect of Braids. I completely understood and adored the unparalleled culture and rich history braids represented. As a Master Pioneer Braider, it was important to create a lasting, proud legacy centered around every aspect of Braids and the talent of the Braiders. I was equally important to highlight the obvious- Braids are beautiful glamorous, attractive and all the other complimentary terms used when describing untextured hair. I am sure- YOU would agree with me, Braids are worthy of a day (International I Love Braids Day + Braid Love Celebration Brooklyn) in HISTORY!
From idea to fruition how long did it take to plan IILBD + Braid Love Celebration Brooklyn ?
It’s been over 10 years in the making.
Describe the day you received the Proclamation:
Glorious! It was everything and more than I dreamed and planned. It could not believe It was actually happening- it had come to fruition. A day not just for me to openly love and celebrate my craft but a day the entire community near and far can officially celebrate Braids. World here we come!
