About

Tiffany Davis is the creator and editor of Natural Hair in the Media.

As a college student at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, Tiffany  learned to take care of her relaxed hair out of necessity. However, she began noticing that it wasn’t growing and decided to do the Big Chop in February of 2005, after transitioning for 7 months. You can read her hair story here.

After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Dartmouth College in 2006, Tiffany enrolled in Emory University’s Graduate program in Sociology. She received her Master’s of Sociology in 2009, and began working immediately in the research field. As a trained Sociologist, researcher, and evaluator, Tiffany has extensive experience in multiple aspects of the research process including conceptualization, data collection, data analysis, and report writing.

Since starting Natural Hair in the Media, Tiffany has developed an interest in multicultural marketing, advertising, and natural hair. She enjoys researching  and finding examples of natural hair in various forms of media – television, print, and online. She is available for interviews and consultations, and can be reached at tiffany@naturalhairinthemedia.com.

Tiffany currently lives in Atlanta, GA and is heavily involved in the natural hair community there. She enjoys traveling, writing, reading, working out, and cooking.

    • Thanks, Tayo! The little girl in the video is so cute, and may even be my hair twin.

      I’m working on setting up an email for photo/video submissions. You can email me at admin@naturalhairinthemedia.com. I”ll post this elsewhere so people can see it.

      I don’t think I’m savvy enough to know how to create a submit button yet. But I will look into it.

  1. Hi Tiffany,

    I am enjoying your website! I’ve been thinking that I need to switch from Blogger to WordPress and you are encouraging me! Anyway, glad that you liked my blog post about the Pantene ad. Really, I think folks have no idea what they are saying (and/or they don’t care!). I look forward to touching base with you!

    • Thanks, Tina. I like WordPress a lot. They have a lot of great themes, and it works for me. I have to agree. It seems like Pantene either didn’t understand the implications of suggesting natural hair was out of control or it wasn’t a big concern. I don’t know which one it is, but I continue to be surprised by some of the comments that celebrities have been making recently and the way that some products are marketed to naturals.

    • Tracy Ross is my hair crush. I tape gldrfiienrs and watch episodes back to back because I love her tresses. For me, natural hair is fun and versatile. So I don't get the whole not natural enough thing. I'm thankful to have Youtube and so many others showing how we can wear our natural hair in different styles because I was taught that my natural hair wasn't manageable growing up. Love your posts.

      • Thank you, Aissa. I love her hair too. It’s so fab, and even though my hair doesn’t look like that, I love the variety of textures that natural hair can achieve. I think many people believe natural hair is unmanageable, but that is partially because they don’t know how to care for it. Like you mentioned, YouTube is a great resource, along with blogs, books, discussion boards, and groups.
        Thank you for stopping by!
