Natural hair brought women of all ages, backgrounds and interests together last night (April 2, 2015) on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.

We teamed up with I.D.E.A.L. Women to bring Kinks & Curls on Campus to college naturals in Hattiesburg and surrounding areas and it was so much fun! We had over 55 guests to come out and four fabulous, interactive vending booths with products and giveaways.

Tracey Wells Harmon of It Works gave away some of their Hair, Skin & Nails supplements and showcased products designed to make women (and men) look and feel their best. Kittyz Pizzazz had a beautiful display of accessories ranging from sunglasses to jewelry and t-shirts and Isa of It’s Butter Baby mixed natural hair products live for our guests.

Melody from Natural U Salon in Jackson gave professional hair care advice during a Skype Q&A session and Victoria of Imprezz Inc. in Hattiesburg performed a live hair demonstration while answering more questions that our naturalistas had. We gave out nearly 20 giveaway prizes and played natural hair bingo to get the crowd relaxed and excited for the other features of the event.
