Event Recap: Healthy Hair and Beauty Affair

This Saturday I braved the cold to take a hike up to Brooklyn to attend the Healthy Hair and Beauty Affair hosted by Natural hair/ Fashion Blogger Toia B. of ToBNatural blog. The space was full of beautiful black women with some super fly hair; ya'll know I was loving it. There were some demonstrations on different styling techniques and makeup, as well as info sessions on hair health. I'm at the point in my life where I'm really starting to embrace my natural hair and beauty, and it was just so wonderful to be able to spend my Saturday afternoon with a bunch of ladies who could relate to me on that level. The venue was full of inspiration; and I cant wait until my hair grows out so I can try some of the funky styles that I saw happening at this event. 

I've done my fair share of big chopping in college so I really got a kick out of the live big chop demonstration done by stylists Anu Prestonia of Khamit Kinks and Dre
