So all my UK people are probably excited about our four-day weekend. I am not as much as others because I work in retail so every week is the same. No Bank Holiday for me… BUT I will be able to go to the Afro Hair & Beauty Show on Sunday this year!
I’m really excited to see the changes they made this year based on our feedback. I was fortunate enough to be able to talk to one of the organisers, Ms Grace Kelly, for an interview around this time last year. She is such a wonderful person and I was able to share my views on last year’s show. I will be looking out for changes!
Two massive changes are the Afro Zone and Afro Nail & Beauty Bar!
I’m most interested in the Afro Zone – though if they’re doing free manicures I wouldn’t say no… I’ve been neglecting my nails recently!
Ok back on topic…
In the Afro Zone brands such as Beautiful Roots, Mixed Chicks, Simply Organics, Joseph Alex Botanical will be on site to showcase their latest products. If you guys are reading this make sure there are decent sized samples! I have a lot of hair to sample on…
There will also be seminars to help those transitioning to afro to help answer questions like: Do you know how to look after your texture? Do you understand your curl pattern? Can you find the right hairstyle? To be honest I might just hit that seminar up myself… I still don’t know those answers!
Root2Tip, has easy-to-follow advice for mothers who need guidance on how to look after their little one’s hair. Xina Boderick from Nature’s Parlour will be conducting an essential seminar on natural skin care. And Natural Hair Ambassador from USA, Taliah Waajid, will demonstrate how to wear on-trend natural styles that are protective and suitable for any curl type.
This is just a fraction of what I heard is going down at the show!
The event will take place on June 3rd and 4th at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London, N1.
