According to the Naturalista Hair Show website, this year’s event is going to be epic. Last year's inaugural event attracted over 800 attendees.
Attendees will be able to take part in various workshops, panel discussions and hands-on classes.

The event will conclude with a fabulous hair and fashion show – “The Mysterious Afro Love Affair Hair/Fashion Show", which will be held on Sunday, August 3 from 6 to 8:00 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel.
The show will feature six salons from the DMV area including N Natural Hair Studio, Uzuri Braids Salon, Jaha Natural Hair Studio, Asaze Natural Hair Salon, Under the Sun Hair Studio and Madam Walker’s Braidery.
Some featured designers will include the Custom Asian fusion line Hiko Style, Simply Cecily Designs a contemporary cultural fashion line and the Native Tongue Collection of Unitees Inc Designs, all of whom are tailoring couture pieces specifically for the show.
In collaboration, the salons and designers will produce an array of eclectic styles that honor and replicate the mysterious relationship that our society has had with Afro textured hair over time as well as highlight new trends for the season.
Advance tickets for the fashion show are on sale now for $13 and will be sold for $15 at the door. Fashion show tickets are in addition to tickets purchased for The Naturalista Hair Show’s two-day event.
