Afro Hair & Beauty 2010

Fresh, Fierce and Fabulous! Bank Holiday weekend

London Afro Hair & Beauty Live – the spectacular hair and beauty event that launched the careers of the UK’s top Afro Stylists – is coming to cosmopolitan Islington with a fresh look and fabulous line up!

Taking place at the Business Design Centre, London, on May 30th and 31st, the stylish show will be bringing the best hair and beauty trends from around the world, all under one roof.

Now in its 28th year, the show has been refreshed to bring a modern take on black beauty. With more things to do, more things to try and now even easier to get to, the show is set to draw a new wave of visitors looking for the latest products and trends.

And with the new venue comes a new, vibrant attitude and packed line-up guaranteed to make your bank holiday the most fierce yet! The show will be split into 3 fabulous zones:

Shop – sample brands from around the world, some of which are available exclusively at the show, and speak to experts who will help you uncover your perfect product. From natural shea butter to lace front wigs, every taste and pocket will be catered for.

Spoil – be polished and preened with massage, threading, makeovers and more in the Indulgence Zone.

Show – watch the amazing stage shows with fashion, dance and demonstrations across the whole weekend.

This year, the winner takes all in the amazing Sensationnel Icon. The show-stopping spectacle will bring together the most creative hair designers from around the country, with each one creating a collection of elaborate masterpieces. Colour, shape and astounding workmanship are a must! There are three trophies Weave Genius, Braid Impact and Avant Garde

Also check out the Annual Wahl Battle of the Barbers. Speed, accuracy and showmanship are the name of the game with this (almost!) cut-throat competition. 8 barbers, 8 sets of clippers and 2 judges will go head to head with the stop-clocked contest that sorts the men from the boys!

Organiser Grace Kelly commented: “Afro Hair & Beauty Live has been a ‘must do’ with many visitors for many years. But we wanted more, and the visitors wanted more. So we have moved to new and more central location, and added elements into the show that consumers will love. Don’t think you’ve seen it all before – this year’s show will blow you away. ”

As well as all this, watch out for special guest PA’s, model competitions and a whole heap of special surprises that are being lined up for the weekend spectacular. If you think you know Afro Hair & Beauty Live, think again!
