National Natural Hair Meetup Day w/FCA Naturals

Founders of FCA Naturals April McKisick (L) and Samantha Horton (R)

Hello all! This past month I attended the National Natural Hair Meetup Day along with many naturals across the USA (yes I know this is late but when life happens what can you do).  We didn’t have a meetup in the city I lived so I attended a meetup in Memphis which is a reasonable distance to drive.

The meetup was hosted by the FCA Naturals at the Playhouse On The Square on Union Ave. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly faces and swag bags. The lobby area was filled with delicious appetizers and drinks which disappeared swiftly! Around the corner of the lobby was a hall filled with many vendors ready to help each natural with something of their preference.

In the main room there were a few vendors and natural hair salon representatives; this is also where the presentations took place. Each salon gave live demonstrations of their work and had Q&A sessions at the end. Also, there were presentations of makeup, numerology, and healthy nutrition. I was pleased that the FCA Naturals took the time to concentrate on providing information for the “whole” being and not just the hair.

Oh, last but not least they had fabulous giveaways and I had my eyes, heart, and soul set on that Karen’s Body Beautiful basket!!! I didn’t win it (boooo), but my niece won a black girls rock t-shirt and found the perfect stylist to do her big chop. It was a great event and I am very glad I chose to attend.

The lobby was packed.

There were plenty of live demos and great information.

I’m Loving  the founder Sonya of Natural Addictees for the deal she gave us.

I even got a great deal with the Natural Cuties Tees and well.

Lastly, the talented Ms. Arekah the Goddess Photography. Her photography is sick yall! Check her website out ASAP!

Well that’s all for now. Hope you enjoyed.

Peace
