Kansas City natural hair event encourages women to embrace their natural beauty

Kansas City, Mo. -- Empowerment and confidence through embracing ones natural beauty is the motivation behind Kansas City resident, Cherice Richmond's debut event: "I'm Naturally Glam" Hair Event on Saturday, May 10.

Uniting natural hair women, those in transition or possibly considering going natural -- this natural hair extravaganza is about networking, fellowship and enlightening one another about natural hair journeys.

Plus, a day pampering by receiving glam bags with natural hair products, live hair and makeup demonstrations, and discovering how to properly care for our natural hair.

"This event is more than just about hair it's empowerment to be yourself," said Richmond, also founder of and Midwest Black Hair Magazine Blogger of the year.

"When you decide to go on a "natural hair journey" that means accepting the texture of your natural hair and embracing it and wearing it proudly."

So many "naturalistas" have experienced so much freedom with our new found natural hair that our confidence shows so much more, Richmond said.

The event, co-sponsored by Midwest Black Hair Magazine, will feature live demonstrations by Imani Aisha with the "Art of the Head Wraps", Smash Glam Studios with a mini makeup and photo shoot tutorial along with receiving information on "Happy Hair Everyday" with Debra Smalls.

Attendees will enjoy live music, free glam bags given away at the door, D&C Sweet Treat cupcakes, giveaways and an eclectic mix of vendors.

The first 50 tickets purchased will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a mini makeover session with Smash Glam Studios.
