National Natural Hair Meet-up 2012 - Pics and Review

Some of the ladies from the Antioch Natural Hair Meet-up Day
The first ever National Natural Hair Meet-up Day was a great success. All over the internet I saw pictures of curly girls and kinky haired divas getting to know each other and celebrating all things natural. In the Nashville area we were lucky enough to have two events one in Antioch and one in Nashville.

In the morning I attended the Antioch Meet-up sponsored by Nashville's Naturals. The morning's meet-up was held at Sweeting's Cosmotology and Braiding Institute. The first meet-up was formal with lots of time for questions/answer sessions with various natural hair stylists and Ms. Sweeting herself.

There were many ladies in attendance in all levels of natural life. The best part was meeting the readers and answering questions about natural hair care and lifestyle. Knowing that there were so many natural ladies in the Antioch area was nice. The community is large and continuously growing. Many of the ladies were surprised to learn about all the blogs and resources available in the city. This was a great sign that National Natural Hair Meet-up Day was working!

Later that afternoon, Toya joined me and we attended the Nashville Meet-up sponsored by Curl Rehab. The event was held at Island Breeze Restaurant on Gallatin Road. Holly, editor-in-chief of Curl Rehab, was a great host. She kept the evenet light and fun by doing natural hair trivia and presenting guests with plenty of giveaways.

There were several vendors at the afternoon event. Several of my favorite Nashville vendors were in attendance including Me'Shell Nicole Jewelry, All Things Curly, Fanuppa Soaps, and Lovely Bands. The guests were excited to see these Nashville companies in attendance.

Overall, National Natural Hair Meet-Up Day was great. I had so much fun and it was amazing to meet all the lovely naturals in the city. I was able to network, buy jewelry, and start the planning stages of an 'official' Natural in Nashville Meet-up! Ooh! Keep and eye out for more info on that development!
