 About Free2B Natural & Yolanda George Harris

"Not A Hair Style, But A Lifestyle”

Motivated by a desire to embrace my natural God given hair texture and be free from straightening chemicals, I began my journey of freedom in June of 2005.  I became passionate about sharing this newfound freedom with others who also desired to embrace their own natural hair texture. Our goal is to empower, educate and train men and women to maintain and style their tightly textured natural hair without the use of chemicals.


Free2B Natural Hair Academy was established and incorporated in January of 2022. Since my completion of specialized training in 2007, I have dedicated myself to offering quality customer services which exceed our client’s expectations. We provide education and specialized training in natural hair care services which includes a consultation and scalp analysis. The consult and scalp analysis helps us craft an individualized plan of care for your natural hair that will start clients on a path to total satisfaction. We take pride in our focus on “whole body wellness" through holistic education and specialized training in natural hair care services.


We also offer specialized training and mentoring to other Natural Hair Care professionals seeking to enhance and expand their skills. ​ Are You Ready To Begin?
