Thanks to Ty Alexander of Gorgeous In Grey, I had an opportunity to attend the African Pride Ultimate Social Beauty event this weekend at the Beacon Hotel in DC.
Guests were treated to a fantastic brunch hosted by some of DC’s beauty influencers including Lianne Farbes of The Makeup Girl; Panama Jackson of Very Smart Brothas, Erin Bailey of Scandalous Beauty; Joi-Marie McKenzie of The Fab Empire.
The intimate discussion garnered honest perspectives from both genders surrounding hair and beauty topics. The panelists delighted guest with their witty repertoire about misconceptions of black hair. One of my favorite topics was the length of time a women waits before she starts wrapping her hair at night in a new relationship.
The overwhelming consensus was if the guy is black, he should already know the scarf comes out at night!
We were also treated to a pretty sweet swag bag filled with full size products including Shea Butter Miracle Detangling Shampoo, Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Formula and Smooth Edges Anti-Frizzy Conditioning Gel.
Over the next few months, African Pride is embarking on an Ultimate Beauty Social National Tour to bring together some of the top beauty and lifestyle influencers in major cities throughout the country.
Each social serves as a platform for transparent conversations from male and female perspectives surrounding hair by facilitating an exclusive and intimate brunch where highly regarded beauty bloggers, media professionals, beauty retailers, and beauty influencers gather together to discuss beauty secrets and techniques.
Super excited to try it!
