The Naturalista Hair Show took place in Silver Spring, Maryland on Sunday, July 28, 2013. The Naturalista Hair Show was founded by Angela Walker of ‘N Natural Hair Studio’. This event brought together naturals around the area to celebrate, embrace, and learn how to care for their natural hair. Participants enjoyed vendors, hair shows, and workshops. We had the pleasure of attending and had a great time. It attracted a wide variety of people from new naturals to well known and highly admired natural hair bloggers.
The vendors had great deals, in fact we purchased 2 Eden Body Works products (normally priced at $9 a piece) for a total of $12! We can’t wait to try and review them! Gotta love Eden Body Works products. We thought the ‘Girls with Curls Rock‘ Booth was super cute too! (HEY APRIL!)
There were several interesting workshops at the hair show as well, we attended the ‘Blogger Panel’ workshop. The panel featured Mae of naturalchica.com, Jess Gray of Hair Gets Kinky When Wet (HGKWW), Pamela Farrell owner of Cornrows & Co, Erin Martin of Bag Ladies, and Tarin Boone of Naturally Me! Media. This workshop was very informative and the panel did a great job of answering everyone’s questions.
We even got a chance to meet Mae, who is super friendly and even more gorgeous in person!
Hey it’s Lauren from La Co Co Bella!
And our fellow Aggie Alum, Ngozi Opera, owner of Heat Free Hair led a workshop on protective styling afterwards. Over all it was a great time and we can’t wait to attend the next one!
Did you have a chance to attend the Naturalista Hair Show? What were your thoughts? Will you attend the next one?
