I met Julian Addo for the first time at the Blissful Curls Tour panel discussion held in Houston last August in which she asked to me to be a part of. My first impression was this lady has passion and drive. After that event our network connection remained. It remained so, that I was asked by her to be a part of another event: 3 The Curl Way Tour as a guest blogger amongst many; and lastly following that I was to be a blogger at the Curls Over Brunch event held in Houston as well. Not to long after that Julian inquired if I was wanted to be a part of her very 1st Natural Hair Expo in Dallas Texas and have a Dress the Part, Shop Smart segment. Of course I was totally humbled and agreed.
The Natural Hair Expo took place October 24th and 25th at the Grapevine Convention Center in Dallas Texas. The event entailed workshops, hair demos, vendors, networking and so much more. A room full of CEOs, entrepreneurs, stylist, and MUA that provided their services and products to the guests. Some traveled a far even in the midst of the unpredictable weather that came from Hurricane Patricia.
Over the course of the two day expo between opening night of the Masquerade to the Ultimate Blogger Pamper Lounge Mixer presented by FrizzFreeCurls and hosted by Houston blogger @iknowleee “aka” Helecia was a success.
The Ultimate Blogger Pamper Lounge Mixer event was titled sponsored and brought to you by CURLS Natural Hair Care (@frizzfreecurls).

Overall the 2015 DFW Natural Hair Expo was just the first of many to come. The seed was planted months ago and October they bloomed only leaving room for a harvest.
If you missed this year’s event in Dallas be on the lookout next year.
Thank you, Julian for the opportunity to share this event with you. Wish you continued success.
