We had the pleasure of attending this years Natural Hair & Health Expo this year and it was more than I expected. I have never attended an expo before let alone one that celebrates keeping your natural hair and your well being all under one roof. Sheen Magazine was there sponsor of the event and attendees were treated to a multitude of beauty samples , super chic clothing and accessories vendors and blood pressure and blood glucose testing . Taking care of your inner health was a main topic during the event and is much needed especially for women of African American heritage. During the day we had panels, giveaways ,live hair demos, fashion shows and a pageant ! It was truly a event packed day . My favorite part of the expo was chatting with with Claire Sulmers from fashionbombdaily about the fashion industry here in Birmingham and congratulating her on her new book The Bomb Life (which she gave me a copy) and all of her accomplishments in the fashion industry . Claire was super sweet and even offered to collab in the near future ! Super excited about that so stay tuned !
Tami Reed aka Talking with Tami was also on the panel with Claire discussing everything from fashion, the latest trends and the importance of shape wear no matter what size you are. That was my first time learning about Tami and how she started out blogging and i was truly impressed on how she grew her business. I am now a new fan !
What an amazing day ! I am so excited that Sheen Magazine created this event to further the beauty and fashion scene here in Birmingham and I look forward to attending next years event !
