So today was a productive day (which unfortunately did not consist of any revision...) My sister and I went to an event called Afro Hair & Beauty Live at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London which celebrates ethnic hair and beauty. It takes place every year during the bank holiday weekend and this year it was on the same day as The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Tickets cost £10 but trust me, you get your moneys worth in FREEBIES! I also bought some shea butter which is good for skin and hair.
This was my first year going and I was really excited. There were so many different ethnicities and hair types, stands and exibitions. There was a main stage where there were numerous fashion shows, competitions, performances and so on.
Just to warn you, I took a lot of pictures... Enjoy!
Some of you may know the YouTuber BeautyByJJ, she was there but I couldn't get a picture of her. She's really pretty in person as well as on screen :)
Going to this event has actually made me consider going back to natural hair. When I was younger and had natural hair we didn't have/know about the products and tools there are now. So I know if I were to go natural I'd be able to maintain it, because my hair was TOUGH!
Have you been to an Afro Hair & Beauty event? Did you go this weekend? Let me know! xo
