I attended the Natural Hair Show today and in my opinion it was a success! The concept is great!
For your $15 dollar admission you could frequent some of the greatest vendors in the Natural Hair industry, often at a discounted price. You got to observe many natural hair stylist at work on raised stages and get tips on what products work better on your texture. Miss Jessie’s had a queuefor one on one consultations with the creators or one of the many stylist on hand. This was great because you found out exactly what products were best for your hair type, (like a try before you buy).
The event had a poetry corner that provided spoken word and music, both instrumental as well as conscious Hip Hop and R&B. The main stage also had entertainment and a 7pm Fashion Show with the most entertaining Master of Ceramony I have ever had the pleasure of observing. The clothing was original and kept people in their seats (and standing) for well over the scheduled close. I left at 9:30 and intend to tell everyone I know about next years event.
It’s scheduled for April 10th and 11th, 2010. I intend to be there, you should too!
