Natural Hair Events Page**
Here in the UK many of us naturals have been frustrated at the lack of natural hair info, products and events there are, but this year their seems to be a distinct change in the atmosphere. Not only does it seem to me that an increasing number of Black women in the UK are choosing to where their hair naturally, it would seem that 2012 has begun with an explosion of Natural Hair Events.
I recommend you check out the Natural Hair Events Page (either click the link below, or the Tab above) where I try to keep up to date with all the Natural Hair Events that I hear will be taking place around the UK.

Not only are these great opportunities to meet other naturals and learn about your hair, there are often goody bags and prizes, and the chance to purchase products without having to pay the P&P fees that come with online shopping.

**COMPETITION TIME**

One of the big events coming up in March is Cut, Colour & Style by Manestream Beauty.
This event is all about having fun with your natural hair.

More info from Manestream Beauty Click Here

We've all seen the recent youtube vids of Sh*t Natural Girls Say and Sh*t Relaxed Girls Say.
(Hands up if you recognise yourself or someone else you know... *reluctant hand raising*).
We can all be guilty of being a bit too serious, but this event is all about simply enjoying Natural Hair and making you look good.
There'll be Workshops and Demonstrations as well as Mini Manicures and Eyebrow Shaping. There'll also be canapes, mocktails and vendors & giveaways. Professionals in attendance will include:
Karl Williams - Cutting, Adornment 365 - Colouring, and Angela Appiah - Styling.
Cut, Colour Style is being held at Blackhall Studios, Leonard Street, Shoreditch EC2A on 4th March. Tickets cost £20.
