This Saturday I got a chance to catch one of the hottest natural hair events around “3 The Curl Way” in Dallas, Tx. The venue was Buttons a restaurant on the north side of Dallas known for its ambiance, southern food , live music, and brunch (Chicken-N-Waffels need I say more). Before you walk in you are greeted with smiles and warmth from the lovely naturals scanning for your name on the VIP list ( if your going to go… you’ve got to go VIP ;). As I walk through the door I’m graciously greeted again and this time I’m handed a “VIP Swag Bagg” loaded with several full size natural hair goodies! There’s nothing a natural hair loves more than some new products to try out and tell her friends about.
The place was loaded with naturals but ironically each and every one of them stood out from the crowd, each adorned and clothed with elegance in their different yet ebony chic looks. It was amazing to see so many African American women come together on one accord, not tearing one another down with stares or judgmental looks but appreciating each others individual sense of style and uniqueness. The ladies mixed and mingled most not knowing anyone, but eager to meet and share their personal experiences with going natural. There were several vendors each showcasing different products from satin bonnets at Flora Bella Boutique to lip balms , lipsticks and lashes at 127|East Cosmetics. Ladies were getting their face beat on site and eyebrows arched on fleek all while sipping mimosas and martinis to soulful R&B rhythms.
The event was hosted by the infamously natural hair community organizer/ co-owner of NaturalPartnersInCrime.com Sabrina Boissiere and boo she tore the mic up. She had the ladies at my table cracking up laughing! She went on to introduce the main event which was an appearance by some of the most well know natural hair instagrammers in the game @HeyCurlie, @Nae2Curly and @curlsAndCoutore. They were so cool and down to earth taking pictures with the audience and mingling before the start of the event.
The ladies spoke about their natural hair journeys, hair regimens their favorite products and how they all teamed up for this event in depth. It was very informal and conversational which was pretty awesome. The audience was able to ask questions and interact with the speakers which made you feel as if you were hanging out with your girls. Throughout the event everyone’s ears were listening hard to Sabrina who was calling out ticket numbers for several door prizes which consisted of artwork, hair products and custom jewelry. Overall I would give this event an A+! Kudos Julian Raddo, @HeyCurlie, @Nae2Curly, @CurlsAndCoutore, Sabrina Boissiere and everyone behind the scenes responsible for making this event a total success for all the naturals in attendance who were looking for hair care knowledge and a good time at #3TheCurlWay.
