This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend the 2016 International Natural Hair Meet Up ‘Curls and Cocktails’, hosted by the beautiful Bianca and Samantha of Natural Power of Her. I took a few pictures, a few video shots and put them together in a short clip. I had so much fun, I forgot to get more footage.
For those who aren’t aware, INHMD happens every year and naturals from all over meet up to discuss, admire, empower, and hang out with men and ladies of all hair types. I don’t think it’s only for naturals, so don’t be shy to attend. If you’re thinking about transitioning, this event (and other natural hair events) is an amazing way to talk to stylists, panelists, other naturals who’ve been doing it for over 10 years, and soak up information so you can start your journey well informed. I even met Miss US Virgin Islands 2016, Taquara. She is so beautiful and graceful.
And not only is it a place of knowledge, local small businesses gather together to share their wonderful handmade and unique goodies with the world. See for yourself in the video below.
Have you ever been to a natural hair event? If so, which ones? I used to go all of the time as a newly natural and I don’t know why I stopped. They’re so fun!
