Afro Hair & Beauty LIVE 2015

Ever since I was young Afro Hair and Beauty LIVE was the place to see and be seen.

Having long since moved from Alexandrea Palace to it new home at the Business and Design centre in Islington the land scape of the event has some what changed, black women are now embarrassing their natural beauty, braids afros, twist outs dreads Yesss honey that’s what’s up1 not shade to the weave and relaxer wearers out there Afro Hair and Beauty LIVE 2015 is dedicated to the celebration of choice, whether you rock the natural, relaxed or a weaved look, you will find a product or service to suit your needs!

And indeed there was. The main stage had a jam-packed line-up of dancer’s singer’s demonstrations and catwalk shows to entertain the eager crowed and workshops took place throughout the day.

Venders included the usual suspects ORS, Cream of Nature, Mixed Roots Keracare and Beautiful Textures which included demonstrations from the hair whisperer herself Felicia Leatherwood.

WAHLS’ famous Battle of the Barbers competition was in full effect and saw barbers from across the country competing to be crowned KING BARBER and the Avant Garde competition displayed an array of eclectic creations.

Creative fashion catwalk show feature designers such as MAM MAW, ASO GLOBAL, PIECES BY KEKE, I-KOLLECTION, HONEY MALAOLU and if you looked closely you may have noticed some of the finalist from Top Model of Colour rocking the runway.

Now I don’t know about you but one of the main reasons I go to Afro Hair & Beauty Live is for the new products! I want to know what is hop and popping and I was not disappointed this year ORS featured two new ranges that were added to their portfolio Shealicious and Monoi Oil range and I was also told by the reps that they had made changes to the Curls unleased range.

I was also able to talk to the reps from new kids on the block CANTU which sold out of its Deep Conditioning Treatment Masque during The Natural Hair Week so you know I had to get my hands on it!
