Pictures from The Afro Hair and Beauty Live Show

It was an exciting day for me as I rushed to get dressed for the much awaited, Afro Hair and Beauty Live Show. I have been growing an afro a year, you see, so imagine my joy when I hear the words "show" and "afro" in one sentence. So off I went, alighting at the closest tube station to the show venue, the Business Design Centre in Angel Islington. I was amazed by the huge stands that had been put in place displaying quite delectable products, all for afro hair!!! Side Note: By Afro, I don't just mean natural, unprocessed hair, I refer to all textures of African hair. Accompanied by my girlies, Tomi and Sunbo we strolled though the stall, in search of treats and tidbits for Afro hair.

It was great attending such an event as this, that creates a platform for African/Afro Caribbean hair and beauty in London. It would have been nice if more attention was paid towards nappy natural hair, as there was more focus on wigs and weave-ons. However, there were products for hair and beauty as well as clothes and accessories. Many people were surprisingly nice and friendlier compared to events I have been to in Lagos. It was easier to compliment someone's outfit or hair or ask to take a picture with them.

The highlight of my day was meeting a lot of creative and beautiful African beauties(both men and women) and getting to watch the fashion show. I'm definitely looking forward to the next event. I think shows like this should happen more often.

Enough stories for now, enjoy the photos below.

I met the lovely Mumplus2 on my way to the event. Love her hair!
