|Me, Keisha Ricks of Nappy Bliss Hair Salon in DeSoto, TX, Ansylla Ramsey of My Hairitage Salon in Clinton, MD and De Phillips Johnson founder of Nappiology, Inc.|
This was my 2nd time to have the pleasure of attending the Nappiology Expo and I was amazed at how Nappiology Inc founder De Phillips Johnson was able to out do last years event. This year Nappioloy added a pre-expo meet and greet event called Nappy Hour held at the Aloft Hotel, Irving,TX. I appreciated her holding this event because it gave attendees and vendors the opportunity to network and offered plenty of drink specials...even a signature Nappiology drink! It was great!!!
During Nappy hour I met so many wonderful people. One of them was a friend from Facebook Darnel Sanders who recently contacted me about a novel titled, Internal Vanity by Antonio Wingfield. The book is juicy and is about 4 adopeted sisters (with natural hair) from a small town in North Texas, thats all I needed to know, I bought a copy! I cant wait to sink my teeth into it! Natural hair drama begins, ;o)
I left Nappy Hour with TONS of samples...My clients will love these!!
I was so excited to attend this year. I'd learned of all the great vendors who were scheduled to be in attendance and all the workshops that were going to be held this year. Heres my recap of my day at the 2011 Nappiology Expo....
|This years expo was held at the Hurst Convention Center in Hurst, TX...the place was HUGE!! I paid my $10 entry and received my welcome bag full of goodies!!|
|As I entered through the expo doors the very first booth is shown above. It stayed busy, and the staff behind the booth worked diligently to answer questions by consumers. I was impressed.|
|Natural Hair pics everywhere!|
|Pure and Healthy Hair Salon's booth offered complimentary make~up!!|
