Lavondra Shinholster - Mother, Entrepreneur, Natural hair Influencer & Motivational Speaker


TTypical BlaQueen was created by myself, LaVondra Shinholster, in October of 2016 in hope of creating more confidence within myself as I publicly documented my natural hair journey. Unbeknownst to me that that name would bring meaning and significance to just more than my self-esteem, but to the confidence of women in my community and around the world that look like me. Through this name I have started a Youtube channel with over 3K followers, a Instagram page with over 6k followers that cater to the needs of the natural hair world and the sharing my experiences while on my own natural hair journey and proudly planning/hosting my second women's empowerment brunch for Mompreneurs and Female Entrepreneurs in the DMV area called Mothers with Motives. Even with me diving deep in my purpose and passion I still find that time to be a mother of 3 boys and create a wonderful bond in a my blended-family relationship.
