Last month natural hair enthusiasts, beauty bloggers, hair and beauty vendors, entertainers, along with a host of beard toting gentleman, all came together from around the world to celebrate the Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Show on its 19th Year in Atlanta, GA. With over 40,000 attendees, and between 300 and 400 vendors, and some amazing guests, we must say, this was our biggest year yet, and it definitely was one of our most engaging, and entertaining one’s to date.
Every year we look to top the last by adding new attractions, and bring our guests new beauty and hair brands, while also providing them with more opportunities for education through our health and beauty classes. As we’ve turned the page to make our show more of a family affair with the addition of attractions like the Kids Zone, and the Book Nook a few years back, this year we decided to bring along the men. We added a Men’s Den to the Natural Hair Show and survey says, you all LOVED it! The attraction was sponsored by luxury men’s grooming products “Uncle Jimmy’s,” and featured a special area for the fella’s to go and get their beard trimmed, their hair cut, play video games, relax in the company of beautiful women and celebrities, while also participating in a beard contest with a grand prize of $500.00 to the man with the best beard. It definitely was a standout at this year’s show, and promises to only get bigger and better as the years go by!
We were also blessed to have some of your favorite natural hair social media stars and celebs on hand to dish in our Social Circle and peruse the show over that weekend meeting and greeting guests while leaving their mark on the festivities. Special thanks to @AvielleAmore, @NaturallyShesDope, @CurlsandCouture, @NaturalChixs, @QueenBrooklyn, @IamShayJohnson and many more for offering up intimate discussions about natural hair, makeup and fashion trends, dating, and health and wellness.
We were grateful to all the ladies who showed up for our hair, fashion, and beauty shows. The looks marveled audiences, and definitely left a stamp on everyone who was looking to be wowed by the hottest new natural hairstyles created by some of the country’s top stylists which I personally handpicked. And like me, I’m sure you couldn’t get enough of the funky styles and crazy prints provided by our designers who truly kept things fresh and captivating on our catwalk, as their work continues to break the fashion ceiling day by the day.
It was also a treat for our guests old and new to walk away from a hair show with a touch of soul as we were happy to have artists Musiq Soulchild, Angie Stone, and Silento on hand to perform a concert for our attendees.
I want to personally thank everyone who came out to the show, and everyone who visited the Taliah Waajid booth and showed your love to our family of products. We appreciate your support both as a guest and a consumer of our brand. We do this for you, and with only you in mind, and hope that together we can continue our mutual celebration of natural hair for many more years to come.
