EVENT ALERT!! WOMEN Of the WORLD 2014

Before I begin, let me warn you that this event gets booked up REALLY quickly!
The Women of the World Festival (WOW) returns to the Southbank Centre next month. Last year I missed out on the 'Weave vs Natural' debate, hosted by Hannah Poole (Writer/Journalist), but fortunately I was able to watch the video >here< and ended up writing a few thoughts in relation to it.
The Politics of Afro hair was such a popular part of the event that it's being repeated with a new panel this year including:
  • Angel Dike (The Natural Lounge)
  • Sandie Okoro (Chief Legal Consultant at HSBC)
  • Natalie Clue (Beauty Pulse London)
  • Me - Crystal Afro

As well as the debate, I'm especially excited about working with Angel Dike (TheNaturalLounge.com) to bring you a Natural Hair Meet Up as part of the WOW Festival. The Natural Lounge was the first UK natural hair blog I ever read/subscribed so it's an absolute honour to be working with Angel.
The meet-up and the debate are free but because they're part of WOW, they're only open to festival attendees, and it's first come first serve, so get your ticket quickly.
