Event Recap: Embracing Your Beauty 2nd Natural Hair Extravaganza – VA- By: Brandi Turpin, EYB
EYB Event
Embracing Your Beauty was co-founded by Brandi Turpin and Keenya Kelly Griffin . EYB is based on Psalm 139:13-16 message translation. Keenya and Brandi were directed by God to share the message of loving learning and Embracing YOU! Through Natural Hair knowledge, HIV awareness, self-esteem seminars, poetry and more, EYB is spreading the message of how to walk in the full potential of what you were created to be. On May 21, 2011, EYB held their second Natural Hair Extravaganza in Norfolk, VA at Old Dominion University. Over 400 beauties packed the Ted Constant Convocation Center to share their stories, learn of tips tools and products to care properly for their hair, engage in a fantastic “head to toe hair show”, shop, shop, shop AND get their Big Chop On Stage!

The Natural Hair Extravaganza opened with an awesome performance by Beautiful Kids, an Alopecia awareness organization. This event included 30 vendors, a hair show, door prizes, raffles, testimonies, stories and speakers on transitioning, protective styling, caring for Locs, make up application and more. The entire event was reported by the minute via social media, by Z-print. Jonna with Waterfront Millionaires did an awesome job of finalizing the vision for the event and Patty with Design Touche did an amazing job Marketing the event in the 7 Cities.

Attendees walked away with Free Samples from: Karen’s Body Beautiful, Jessicurl, Goody and Mixed Chicks. And don’t forget the constant drawings throughout the day for free products that included: Beautiful Curls, Hair Therapy Wrap, Kinnks.com and many many more.
