Natural Hair & Beauty Expo 2013: Re-Cap | Part II

FroHawkIn the last post, I spoke about participating in the Natural Hair & Beauty Expo; general information regarding the event vendors and about the event. Today, I’ll chronicle my personal experiences and thoughts about the road leading up to the event.

As a participant in the hair show, we agreed to have our hair styled by students at the Orlando Beauty Institute. We were informed that the stylists were senior students and had been used in the previous year’s event. Hearing that made me a bit more comfortable with the fact that foreign hands would be handling my hair. I showed up at the school in order to have a ‘consultation’ and to be notified which stylist (we’ll call her Nicole) would being doing my hair. Nicole and I decided that we’d do an updo or frohawk, and made our appointment for 3:15 on Friday.
