My Black Is Beautiful Takes Over The Black Women’s Expo!
The Cut Life crew joined My Black is Beautiful to celebrate their 10 year anniversary at the Black Women’s Expo in Atlanta October 7 – 9, 2016. Attendees gathered at the MBIB Booth in the Georgia World Congress Center to enjoy complimentary dry hair styling, hair & skincare consultations, complimentary MBIB 10-year anniversary commemorative t-shirts, product giveaways, temporary tattoos, a photo booth, sounds by DJ Toni-K & more!
Atlanta-based stylists, Erica Hudson, Chantelle Norman, and Najah Aziz, demonstrated live tutorials including a bun hawk up-do, Bantu knots, glam curls, twist bun with textured extensions, and short hairstyles with soft curls and a fabulous pin curl mohawk. The stylists used Pantene Pro-V Intense Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner and Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash , Pantene Truly Natural Defining Curls Styling Custard, Pantene Pro-V Intensely Strong Repair Crème, Flexible Hold Pantene Pro-V Air Spray (we love that it’s alcohol-free!) and Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Scalp Soother on guests that stopped by the booth. If you missed the live tutorials, please visit www.YouTube.com/TheCutLife to watch the step-by-step process of each look.
Our co-founder, Tahira Joy, had the opportunity to interview actress/model, Eva Marcille, about her hair journey, what makes her feel #BeautyEmpowered, and her advice to women who are scared to cut their hair, she says “every woman should cut their hair at least once in their life, it’s a freeing feeling.” Eva is currently wearing a protective style (Marley twists), so we recommended the Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Scalp Soother to relieve any itching in between shampoos. Reality Star, stylist and salon owner, Derek J, also stopped by the booth to support, and we enjoyed chatting with My Black is Beautiful Senior Brand Manager, Grace Janes, and Black Women’s Expo Executive Producer, Merry Green, about their impactful collaboration.
If you’re looking for products to revive your curls, condition your color and/or to maintain healthy relaxed hair, MBIB has provided amazing options with Pantene Expert Collection, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Collection, Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection, and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist (the #1 selling conditioner in America!). Now we can’t mention healthy hair and not address skincare…we are absolutely IN LOVE with Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Collection (sidebar-Olay is celebrating 60 years!!). The Regenerist Micro-Exfoliating Wet Cleansing Cloths have built in moisture and the Luminous Tone Perfecting cream gives you the even skin tone we all desire. We’ve been using the entire line every day since the Black Women’s Expo and we’re excited about the results!
