THE Annual Natural Hair & Beauty Festival Is Coming To Sandton

MOST people around the world, including South Africans, always tell their loved ones to look presentable, be it for work, school and social gatherings. That’s what you do for those you love. However, majority of us often say this in a suggestive tone without even realizing it. For instance, when someone chooses to wear their natural hair in a way that might not fit the norm as engraved in us for so many years, we tend to use the word ‘presentable’ to suggest they wear it in a way we feel fits the mold. This also applies to beauty.  There are even rules in most organisations and institutions that are designed to transgress anything that does not fit that mold when it comes to beauty and hair. Late last year, some of these organisations were brought to a standstill as they enforced their rules which were clearly not accommodating and lacked what one can call reality and depth.

HOW did we end up here? That was the question on everyone’s lips last year. As a nation, we believe we will eventually get it right. Luckily, starting on the 1st of April 2017 there’s a festival to celebrate our Natural Hair and Beauty. The first ever prestigious Annual Natural Hair & Beauty Festival will be held at Mushroom Farm Park in Sandton from 10:00 to 18:00. It is aimed at all races, genders and ages and embraces and celebrates cultural diversity through Hair and Beauty.

THE Annual Natural Hair and Beauty Festival will be a unique experience that will give people an opportunity to enjoy a day full of activities: live music, dancers, poets, display of brands and products, world class education, live hair and beauty performances, celebrities and much more. Why not check it out for yourself!

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
