Last Saturday, I spent my day at The Kinky Apothecary’s Natural Hair and Beauty Show. The event had several well-known speakers, a whole host of vendors, and lifestyle and beauty zones. I missed the event last year. 🙁 From all the recaps I read, it seems like I really missed out. So, I made it a priority to make it this year.
Felicia was supposed to do a live big chop but I guess the model couldn’t make it. 😥 She still dished out some great information and some product recommendations.
I enjoyed the event. It was pretty well organized. The venue was beautifully set up. However, I was a bit disappointed in the turnout, especially for the talks. Considering how much effort and publicity went into it, I thought more people would have come. It could be scheduling conflict or the ticket price point. I’m not really sure.
I enjoyed all of the speakers and I learned something and/or was inspired by each of them. Stay tuned . . . my lessons learned post is coming soon.
It was also nice to catch up with some blog friends and meet new ones, like Dabs of Naija Hair Can Grow & Savvy Chic Hair Beauty Hub, Vivian of Skinny Brownie, Kenzo of Black Prophecies, Deola of Omoge Mura, and Coco of Albimazing. I missed a few people too like Alex of Nappy Haired and Ella of Natural Girl on a Budget. If you have sharp eyes, you may see some of them in the vlog.
Enjoy the pics and video. You see more pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #NNHB2016.
