Are you kidding me? Give a girl any excuse to buy innovating beauty products and talk about hair all day and I’m in. Yesterday was sooo much fun, and I’ve gotta take my hat off to the event organizers Grace Kelly and Verna Mckenzie – whom, after 30 years still manage to put on a great show for women of color. Recession or not, the Afro Hair and Beauty Show 2011 showed the world that British women of ethnicity will stop at nothing in order to look good and feel great.
