WEATHER UPDATE:

Florence will NOT stop the show. We don't know home girl for real and she ain't callin no shots over here.

Welcome

Allow me to reintroduce you to The Naturalista Expo, formerly known as The Naturalista Hair Show. 

I bet you are wondering what’s with the name change?...Oh you know, we are just over here bringing the show to new heights.


Over the past five years, this event has been focused solely on natural hair, but there’s so much more that goes into the subculture of being a Naturalista. There’s so much more to us than hair and The Naturalista Expo is a Black Girl Celebration of it all.

This year we’re talking health, beauty, and hair. Health meaning mind, body, and soul. Beauty meaning skincare, makeup and fashion. Hair meaning healthy hair period.

I can guarantee you the event we have planned for this year you’ve never experienced anything like this on a grand scale. Think of a boutique show on a larger stage, with blooming flowers and the perfumed scent of black girl magic everywhere you look. It’s finna be dope and you should come through.

I’ll see you in September. Issa vibe.

Founder of The Naturalista Expo
