On August 21 I went to Trials n Tresses‘ End of Summer Bash at HK Lounge in Manhattan. This was their first event and there was a big turnout of naturals from all over.
There was a makeup tutorial transitioning from day to night by Marsha’s Makeovers with pauses in between mingling for raffles and giveaways. The event featured a panel of 5 women: Sabrina Boissiere cofounder of Natural Partners in Crime, Dr. Seanna-Kaye Denham of naturalhairdoescare.com, Ijeoma Eboh founder and Editor in Cheif of Klassy Kinks, Wondercurl creator Scarlett Rocourt, and Monet Fitzgerald aka Curlsandmo discussing how to build a successful brand or business in the natural hair community.
The first 40 women were entered to win a free crochet hair installation from crochethairnyc. I just happened to be the lucky winner. The installation took about two hours to complete. I hope to keep the style in for three weeks to a month.
I also met fellow blogger Mrs. Phat and Naptural and two natural newbies. Our conversation included tips on length retention, what to expect at a natural hair event, technology and more. It was a good first event for Trials n Tresses and I can’t wait for the next.
