I was fortunate to win two tickets to Curlvolution’s Curl Friends Day out – a natural hair expo. Thank you Curlvolutions!
The last natural hair expo that I went to was Adornment in 2007 – remember Adornment? Yes, before the salon in Brixton there was an expo. So it was interesting to see how things have changed in the six years.
Curvolution 2013 was held in the lovely Crown Plaza Hotel in the Royal Docks on the same day as ComiCon was being held at Excel so Anime and Manga devotee were mixing with Naturalistas in the sunshine. A very interesting sight.
Curlvolution had the first floor, a room of vendors and the room where the discussions took place. There were TWAs, full blown afros, plaits, two strand twists, buzz cuts, and locs in every shade from black to platinum blonde. It was a lovely positive atmosphere and I managed to take one or two pics… have a look.
