What a day! Today is May 19,2012 which is the official day for National Natural Hair Meetup Day. I had a good time meeting all of the new people and making connections. I participated in the Toledo event which was set up like a block party. Let me give you the run down...
- 6+ vendors plus access to more on the side walk
- Beauty and hair supplies available
- Powell's Beauty Supply Store open for business during the event
- Poetry acts
- Natural Hair segments <---that's me :)
- Onsite nail tech and hairstylist
I did a segment on developing a hair regimen and answered lots of questions. I also did a giveaway of Shea Moisture products. I received an NNHMD "Swag Bag" FULL of samples and coupons. On the product swap table I picked up a bottle of Jane Carter's leave in conditioner :)
Overall, it was a pretty good event! I would like to thank Megan Davis for inviting me and making me feel more than welcome.
I am so thankful that the weather was beautiful,not a cloud in the sky. Over the course of the day my hair got bigger and bigger! I have a tutorial for this style coming tomorrow :) If you did not get to attend any of the events, please mark your calendars for next year. The date will be Saturday May 18 in a city near you!
