Get Ready For Some Hair Events!
I remember the first time I went to a hair event. I was astounded by how many cool hairstyles I saw. At the time, I was very young, so natural hair was not a trend. The hair-show that I attended was full of permed or relaxed hairstyles. Some of them hairstyles meant for runways or showcases, such as big, outstanding hairstyles that can’t be worn on a daily basis. Other hairstyles were everyday hairstyles for regular people to wear. There were plenty of hair care vendors there as well. I went home with tons of free product! I met tons of hair and beauty vendors and bloggers involved in the hair world. Overall, the experience was one that I’ll never forget.
