The keynote address was delivered by award winning celebrity loc stylist Thando Kafele. Kafele was joined by an amazing panel of guest speakers featuring vlogger Franchesca “Chescaleigh” Ramsey, Wariesi Flores, owner of Sumptuous Sisterlocks Salon and Spa and Yannie the Locologist. Workshops included Loc Styling by Sabine’s Hallway, The Art of Head Wrapping by Yendys Nefar of The Cowrie Shell Center and Oils 101 by Yannie the Locologist. All of which was surrounded by an array of vendors offering products and services.
Guest concluded the night with laughter and a little dancing to the tunes of DJ Jason Grey. They left with smiles, gift bags filed with goodies from sponsors and few lucky people went home with cool raffle prizes. The event was a great success that would not have been possible without the contributions of everyone involved. Locs Revolution would like to thank all of the speakers, vendors, volunteers and guest for their participation. A special thank you goes out to all the event and raffle sponsors.
