Naturally Happy Hair was honored to be a part of the 1st EVER Social Circle at the World Natural Hair Show along side Exclusive Featured Blogger Frances Williams from Revealing Beaute, Monique Boea from Kinky Peaches, Kenyada Jones from All Tressed Up, and Maeling Top also known as Natural Chica. The Social Circle was a place for bloggers and followers to connect to each other by streaming LIVE from the show.
After arriving in ATL on Friday afternoon we were in much need of a hearty lunch, so we set out to find some good soul food or chicken and waffles. A nice lady at Lenox Mall pointed us in the direction of ATL’s hot spot Big Daddy’s and Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles. For lunch we choose Big Daddy's and for dinner we settled at Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles. Both were great, but H-TOWN’s 'This Is It' Soul Food and The Breakfast Klub still wear the crown :-)
As the sun began to set we prepared to PARTY! The Official World Natural Hair Party Affair at Primal Night Club was the place to be! We had no problem taking over the dance floor as we listened to a LIVE performance by R&B singer and Grammy award winner Chisette Michele. In addition to Chrisette, we also got to rub elbows with 4 time NAACP Image Award winner and 'For Colored Girls' actress Kimberly Elise! Before leaving we stopped for photo ops with Taliah Waajid and her herome of handsome natural black men.
After a restful nights sleep, it was time to rise and shine early Saturday morning for the 15th Annual TALIAH WAAJID WORLD NATURAL HAIR SHOW Social Circle. Naturally Happy Hair was given two topics to discuss LIVE stream. Crystal interviewed celebrities, bloggers, and hair product vendors such as Will Williams of Sofn'free. I talked about free classroom workshops and interviewed Ms. Ona Bloomberg. I attended Ms. Bloomberg’s free workshop “How to Grow Longer, Thicker Hair Fast.” Her workshop was very informative and I consumed a lot of helpful hair care tips in one hour. We also met and chatted up Ms. Felicia Leatherwood, celebrity hairstylist extraordinaire! She has a beautiful spirit...NHH just loves her! The World Natural Hair Show was was a high spirited, fun-filled event with education through classes and workshops, hairspiration (oh, the hair!), shopping and just plain ole' FUN!
Saturday evening Naturally Happy Hair and Nappy Love Houston had our 1st National Meet Up at Two Urban Licks. It was a wonderful evening filled with laughter, sharing natural hair stories, getting to know each other, and understanding why natural hair ROCKS! Soul Sister of the soulsistershow.com joined us for the event and sponsored giveaways!
Sunday was bitter sweet for Crystal and I, as it was our last day in Atlanta :-( We didn’t want to leave because we had met so many wonderful, talented, and fun curlfriends at the show. We are definitely looking forward to the next World Natural Hair Show and hope to see you there!
