My Hairstory in collaboration with Naturalhair.co.za presents My Hairstory ZA 2017, taking place at 6 Spin Street Restaurant on 5th of August 2017 from 13:30 – 18:00.

My Hairstory ZA was born out of natural drive to learn and understand natural hair. Faced with the challenge to acquire information for something that is so arguably unique to Africa, raised questions on how this could be?! The urge to acquire information led to the birth of My Hairstory ZA.

My Hairstory is an annual natural hair event which aims to connect individuals with natural hair service providers. Based on the previous successful event, where natural hair service providers showcased their products and gave tips on how to take care of natural hair has been the motivation to host another successful event.

Given the rapid awareness and growth of the natural hair community, they have partnered with Naturalhair.co.za, a web based platform that aims to create a collaborative role in the movement. This year they will be exploring "Achieving the look''.

How to achieve trendy looks and styles for different life events. This event will set out to answer to the call of Naturals wanting to learn more about styling and dressing up their hair, and how to treat it in between styles and washes.

The goal is to engage with newly returned naturals with lots of questions, as well as seasoned experts and ambassadors with lots to share.

Keeping in tune with sharing of experiences, there is a program that will allow exhibitors to engage with different people representing different aspects of hair.

This year KFM Radio presenter, Andy Maqondwana will be the master of ceremony.

“The ideal space to not only feel safe and free with who you ARE and all your kinks and curls but also a space to meet quality brands you may not know.”

Tickets are available on Quicket for R 120, children under 12 enter free. For more information visit Naturalhair.co.za or My Hairstory ZA Facebook page.
