As you all know, we’ve been some busy bees! Traveling around from city to city every month has definitely been tiring, but nothing feels better than seeing some of your gorgeousness faces and tresses out and about to give us motivation.
Case in point: our trip to New Orleans last week to Essence Fest!
If you’ve never had the pleasure of traveling to Essence Fest, we can assure you that you’ve been missing out on some of the most diverse styles out there. While the show is primarily geared towards R&B, there is SO much more offered. One thing in particular that caught our eye was the 2nd Annual New Orleans Natural Hair Expo presented by “Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils.” Hosted by ItsMeItsMo, the event was held at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans and featured workshops, product demonstrations, blogger panels, vendors, and of course, hair, hair, and more hair!
Filled with a good time, the event not only showcased some of the most beautifully styled and maintained tresses, but it also delivered great products and even better advice. From head scarves to every flavor of butter you can think of, next year’s event needs to be on your radar if you’re planning to hit Essence!
