“The ‘Naturally You’ tour is not just about embracing our natural beauty, it’s about dismantling the harmful ‘isms’ that have plagued our society for far too long,” said Johnny Wright. “It’s time to heal from colorism, racism, and lookism, and this tour is a movement towards that goal. I can’t wait to connect with my fellow sisters and brothers and share what it truly means to be Naturally YOU.”
Emmy-nominated celebrity hairstylist, motivational speaker, Johnny Wright is thrilled to announce his upcoming 11-city Naturally You Tour, inspired by his bestselling book “Natural and Curly Hair for Dummies.” Johnny will make the official announcement during the Essence Festival in New Orleans on Saturday, July 1st, alongside his premiere partner MYAVANA at their Hair Lab in the Ernest Morial Convention Center.

The Naturally You Tour isn’t just another book reading, nor is it just another book signing. The tour aims to provide a safe, informative, and celebratory space for people of all backgrounds to come together, share their stories, connect with one another, and heal by dispelling conscious and unconscious biases about how they look, feel, and move about the world.
The tour will consist of panel discussions featuring some of the country’s leading hair experts, thought leaders, and industry visionaries. With a focus on diversity and inclusion, this tour is designed to empower attendees to embrace their natural beauty and promote self-love and acceptance. Whether a naturalista or not, Johnny invites all races, genders, and backgrounds to join him on this exciting journey of self-discovery and transformation.
Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy an engaging cocktail hour, mix & mingle, all the while exploring Johnny’s curated vendor’s row, featuring hair, beauty and lifestyle brands he loves. It’s an excellent opportunity for attendees and vendors alike to connect, sell their products, while having a fun and exciting experience.
