With Curls & Cocktails Part 1 under our belt, I was amped and ready for session two which would focus on cutting natural hair. Like the first, this event was sponsored by the Natural Alternatives Salon and was planned by Red Carpet Events. My goal of this session was to showcase a live big chop where one fabulous natural would be ushered in to the natural hair community surrounded by her curlfriends. I also wanted to showcase stylized natural hair cuts and provide inspiration passed the traditional fro.
The night was gorgeous and we expanded the event to the upstairs private patio for cocktails, music and mingling while the downstairs salon area was open for interaction with the stylists and to network with other curlies. The cocktails were sponsored by Rhythm liquor and there were giveaways courtesy of Go Natural Hair & Body Boutique and DCN.
I am so proud to say that in front of a full capacity crowd we watched not one, but two live big chops and a layered cut by stylists Shaha and Dakota. I had the opportunity to meet many new naturals still early on their journey who were looking to see what the natural hair community has to offer and I am glad to say that we did not disappoint!
Our next Curls & Cocktails Event will be Friday, August 15 @ 8:00 pm see invite to RSVP.
