I told you this bank holiday weekend was packed! On Saturday, I went to Curlvolution, one of UK’s favourite natural hair event! Check out my cover for last year’s event here
For the 5th birthday celebration, the lovely Maria- Antoinette was the special guest. Her workshop ‘Out & Fly in 20 minutes’ gave ladies some tips and tricks to help with hair and makeup and be out in 20 minutes! I liked the quick demo she also had as she explained each step and lots of product recommendations. There were other workshops on hand too, Mommy & me, Financial freedom with Junior Ogunyemi (very insightful workshop and debunked a lot of myths on money) and Importance of Nutrition and Wellbeing with Trichologist Stephanie Sey ( the feedback I got from people who went to this workshop was very good)
As usual your favorite vendors were on hand: My Luxe Beauty, Shea Butter Cottage, Crème of Nature, Afrocenchix and of course this year’s sponsor Shea Moisture!
The panel discussion, the part everyone looks forward to didn’t let me down! Topics were cultural appropriation vs culture appreciation which got a bit heated I should add and social media gift or curse (let me know what you guys think). This year’s panel included Brown Beauty Talk Editor Ronke, Breeny Lee UK Beauty Vlogger, Junior Ogunyemi, Antonia Burrell and of course Maria-Antoinette. Action Jackson returned to host the event.
Visitors received a goody bag including a full sized product from brands like Shea Moisture, Palmers or Shea Butter Cottage! I had a great time and it was lovely to reconnect with some of the volunteers from last year! Glam Africa and Black Beauty Magazines were also included in some of the goody bags!
Of course I took a lot of pictures too many to put on here! Please follow the link below to my Facebook page for all of the pictures. Guys also make sure you check Maria’s YouTube channel!
Looking forward to Curlvolution next year!
People are looking for Jesus’s bones for proof he existed, you can’t find the bones of a man who is alive now can you?!
