The Black Beauty Expo took place in Richmond, VA this past weekend (Oct. 23rd-25th). I had a great time at the expo and met various black business owners, sampled new products, attended a competition and as well as some educational courses on fantasy hair and other specialty areas.
Here’s a brief description as quoted on the BBE site:
“The BLACK BEAUTY EXPO was established in 2008. The BLACK BEAUTY EXPO’s primary focus is to be a catalyst for success and advancement in the Black Beauty Industry at large by bringing together professionals from all facets of the industry including braiders, stylists, barbers, Make-up artists, distributors, manufacturers and more. Virginia serves as home to the BLACK BEAUTY EXPO and is centrally located to every major city from Boston to Georgia.”
The Richmond show is still a work in progress as its a new movement designed to highlight the Hair & Cosmetics industry. I look forward to seeing it fully blossom in the next couple of years.
Here are just a couple of the many pics I took at the show…
