Your hair is your crown and to celebrate your crowning glory this September, get down to the Johannesburg Natural Hair Expo 2018.
After the success of last year’s expo, it is back for a second edition. Taking place at Constitution Hill on 24 September 2018, the expo will host a a range of local and international brands, providing the opportunity for all to celebrate their “hair-itage”.
The organisers of the event are passionate about empowering women and girls. With this expo, their aim is for females to embrace their natural hair and understand and fall in love with who they are. It also provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs who produce natural haircare products to market these products to their target audience.
With the event taking place on Heritage Day, attendants are encouraged to represent their diversity through their choice of outfits, providing the perfect excuse to play dress-up!
Activities on the day include music, poetry, fashion and art diversions. Food stalls and a kids’ corner for the little ones will also be available.
“We believe in natural beauty. To us, natural beauty is being clear on who you are and falling in love with that person. We pursue natural beauty by embracing and loving our natural hair. We believe it is a beautiful crown that makes us feel gorgeous, confident, sexy, unfiltered and most importantly; authentic. We do not cover our crowns, but take care of them and wear them with pride.” says Creative Director Itumeleng Mogatusi.
Tickets for the event are available from Quicket and at the door.
