Afro Hair & Beauty LIVE 2014



So I got the email – Afro Hair & Beauty LIVE is back, taking place on May 25th and 26th 2014 at the Business Design Centre, Islington.

Thier PR tells me it’s the only place you’ll find award winning hairdressers, specialist beauticians and cutting edge fashion all under one roof.

This year you can indulged with a customised manicure at one of the many pop-up beauty booths or take the stress off you mind with an Indian head massage or spa facial. They are even doing henna tattoos to professional eyebrow threading and eyelash extensions – all at cut prices.

 Not only that but the runway stage will be in full action with fashion shows, dynamic hair competitions and show special presentations from the leading names in the ethnic hair and beauty industry. If any of the clothes you see catch your eye visit the Afro Hair & Beauty Fashion Boutique to bag a one-off piece at a special show price.

The event also includes the Sensational Icon competition where top hairstylists display imaginative avant garde styles that can only be described as visual masterpieces. Along with the fiercely charged WAHL Battle of the Barbers competition which sees barbers from all corners of the UK work their skills.

What really caught my eye was the fact that natural hair celebrity stylist, Felicia Leatherwood known as the ‘Hair Whisperer’ is going to be there at the Beautiful Textures stand. I know in the past people have been disappointed with the show, they felt that it wasn’t for naturals, but when I went last year I saw lots of natural stands and I think they are trying to really embrace black hair as a whole, so if I can make it, I will be down there. Are you coming?

This is me with Felica at a previous Beautiful Textures Event

Special offer 2 for 1 tickets are available until end of March
