The two-day Africa Hair Summit for Afro hair culture and beauty festival opened its curtains on Thursday 1st December and ended on Friday 2nd December, which took place at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, Nigeria.
The fashion exposition was put together by Specialized Exhibitions Montgomery, as it is the largest gathering of corporate organizations and natural hair lovers showcasing the beauty of African culture and Heritage.
Speaking to the Head of Volunteers at the festival, Precious Zoe, she said the festival is not just for women only, it is also for men as they have had celebrities at the festival, the likes of Prince and Whitemoney ex-BBN housemates.
She revealed that they have also had a virtual show in South Africa last year and they also visit schools as well as to enlighten students on how to grow and maintain black natural hair.
Since its inception in 2016, this will be the 2nd edition of the Afro hair culture and beauty festival. The fashion show was also held in Lagos last year.
According to Precious, they also have partners in other countries, such as South Africa, and they usually organize virtual shows in June and the physical shows are usually in December.
The festival provided a platform for exhibitors to place their products in a market channel to attract customers.
It entertained the nitty gritty that naturalists needed to know about toxic chemicals in hair and beauty products, along with teachings on the production of healthy alternatives that promote natural hair growth and maintenance.
The Afro hair culture and beauty festival also featured hairstyles for different careers, styling products, treatment, and natural hair care services.
