Hair Garden Nursery’s Braid Workshop For Moms!

Hello everyone! After many requests and much planning I have put together a braiding class for moms!

Many bring their children to the salons to have their hair styled but maintenance at home is just as important!

In this 3.5 hour class, you will learn basic braiding (plaits), cornrowing, twisting and coiling. This class also teaches how to prep for styling. This class is great for moms of children with beginner locs as well!

This class will include a Hair Garden sample set, gel, clips and rat tail comb. You bring your own brush and wide toothed comb!

Limited spaces available to ensure a quality and comfortable learning environment! Reserve your spot today! More classes may be available depending on requests!

Our Day at Augusta’s Saturday Market on the River!!

Greetings, everyone!  As I posted late last week, I was teaming up with African fashion company, AfroSimplicity at the Saturday Market on the River in Augusta. Before I say anything else, I want to thank all my lovely customers for coming out and showing their support! It felt good to see so many familiar faces!

We got up super early and headed out to set up our booth. I found it to be a great success. We had a great experience and met many wonderful, new people! I take any new venture or opportunity in business as a positive learning experience!

Aphropuphs at Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair Show!!

Hello, beautiful people! This past spring I reached one of my ultimate career goals! I will given the opportunity to teach 2 classes at the Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair and Beauty Show. To be part of this event was definitely an honor! For many years I have attended this show and met many wonderful people. Never did I think I would have an opportunity to be part of the show so soon!

The 2 classes I did that weekend were: 1. Heatless Stretching and Styling and 2. Slow Growth Troubleshooting.

In the first class I did, Heatless Stretching and Styling, I had the beautiful Michele Etienne as my hair model. She has been a natural hair client of mine for quite some time and she was gracious enough to travel all the way from Augusta to let me use her hair for my hands-on demonstration. The turnout was really good and I got a lot of questions from the audience. I demonstrated everything from banding, braiding with fabric, roller/rod setting to hand stretching during blow drying. I have done articles on this very blog about many of these heatless stretching methods and will do more later. I showed that these things can be done with the tightest curl pattern and with all types of products from your favorite over-the-counter product to natural oils and butters.

In the second class, Slow Growth Troubleshooting, we went over the many internal and external factors that can affect hair growth. We covered everything from daily styling and product usage to environmental and internal factors. This class had an even better turn out than the first. I answered a lot of questions from ladies concerned about their hair and scalp health.

The hair show was a very exciting and humbling experience for me. I was honored to be a part of the line-up of natural hair gurus and experts giving classes and demos that weekend. I hope to be able to take part in this wonderful event again in the future! I wish  I would have posted the information about the classes sooner so I could invite more of you but I will be better prepared in the future!

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
