Hey family, happy almost end of the month lol. Can you believe it? Anyway how did you guys spend your Tuesday night? I went along to the Curly hair magazine launch event and I am here to tell you guys all about it!
Curly hair magazine is only the UK’s 1st FREE magazine aimed for naturalistas!! Yassss, thank you natural hair gods lol. I stopped buying magazines a while ago because they all seemed to look the same and have the same hairstyles. As I become natural, I started to look for natural hair styles and advice in these same magazines and they fell short each time, so in the end I just stopped buying them. But now, naturalistas like myself can grab a free copy of this magazine for the latest natural hair trends, advice and product reviews. What’s great about it is that you can also read it online: for the busy always on the go ladies and it was created by women with curly coily hair for women with curly coily hair: this guarantees they GET YOUR HAIR… Anyways back to the event
It was hosted in the Grace bar in Piccadilly Circus from 5pm. When I got there, one of the lovely owners, Sandra greeted me at the door and told me about the order for the day and the things going on: nails, hair braided, wine etc.. I went got get my hair braided immediately lol.
It was familiar faces all round but some new ones too… Pelumi from CFYH (Did you know about her event? check it out>> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-yN ), Rachy from UKafrolista, Joycelyn, co-owner of Afrochenchix. Some new people I met on the day too, Corrine from Kora Naturals, Lola from LoveShea, Rachael from the hairspiration app (I will do a whole post on this soon! great idea btw). Alexander from Brownbeauty blog (Thanks for the foundation recommendations!) I apologise for the lighting in some of the pictures. One of the guys from ruff copy from xfactor was there too.
The event got on the way and we watched a mini video on how and why curly hair mag started. Ladies were expressing their views on why they went natural and if they still bought black hair magazines. We also had the CEO of pakscomestics there and a demo of curl formers (I really need to try those). After speaking to a few ladies and staying there for a while, I had to leave a bit early (early day next day!). It was a good event and I had so much fun meeting and speaking to different people.
