Hair expo time!

31 August 2018 | Art and Entertainment

The fourth Natural Hair and Beauty Expo (NHBE), a unique initiative run by four dynamic women, will be held on 8 September.

Under the exciting theme of 'Re-imagine Namibia', this year's expo is an eclectic mix of culture, heritage and Afro-futurism, and how we re-imagine Namibia to be.

The aim of the expo is to create awareness of the natural hair and beauty industry, which has significantly grown into a billion-dollar industry in the world and Africa. The expo combines innovation, creativity, culture, heritage, entrepreneurship and collaboration, says Zodidi Gaseb, one of the organisers. The expo also features opportunities for international exhibitors in various collaborative efforts.

“We are looking forward to how people will transfer this into their hairstyles, fashion and products and services. It creates a platform for entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services to a wider, engaged audience,” said Gaseb.

Apart from promoting local entrepreneurship, the expo also defines perceptions of Afro-textured hair through interactive debates and information sessions. The NHBE promises an exciting, educative and interactive event where people can feel free to be themselves in an inspirational and inclusive setting, where critical discussions towards changing society's perceptions are held.

“You can experience the full expo by tasting delicious food and drinks, be amazed by local fashion, enjoy live performances with fun and games for children of all ages and of course, locally produced natural products for hair and skin and beauty.

“Join us at IUM Dorado Park for a mecca of afros, twist-outs, curls, as well as beards, set to a soundtrack of positive energy. We've gathered the best names in natural beauty, added dope vendors, and topped it off with some surprises you won't want to miss,” Gaseb added.

The expo will take place next weekend at IUM Dorado Park from 10:00 to 17:00. Tickets are N$100 for the general public, N$60 for students with valid student cards, and free for children under the age of 16.
