This is Des. I wanted to share my experience from Sunday with you. On Sunday, I went to Killeen's Natural Hair & Health Expo, there we met lots of people that had natural products or were interested in curly hair. We got stopped by many photographers and I got my picture taken. People asked my mom who did my hair and that was an obvious answer, she does it. Then they lectured her because she has no hair license. They were trying to tell her she should get a hair license cause there are not enough people who know how to take care of curly hair.

We then went to a Hair Styling class given by DRamZ84 and there we met a lady, Ms. Felicia, that was staying for the Hair Show. She customizes feathers hair pieces and offered me one to wear in the hair show. I was able to chose a feather to match my outfit. We ran to get ready for the hair show right after talking to Ms. Felicia (missed out on taking a pic with her).

For the Hair Show, I wore a shirt that says "Diva" and a multi-colored tutu (my mom made) worn over a black petticoat. I also had blue ruffle flats on and in my hair I wore the vibrant yellow feather hair piece. I walked down the runway and then scurried to dressing area to get changed. For my dressy outfit, I changed into a brown and gold dress. For accessories, I wore bangles, a flower necklace, flower petal earrings, and taupe colored shoes. At first, my hair was out and then my mom put my hair up in a loose french twist held in place with a brown dangling hair pin. When I went up the second time, I had to answer questions and walk one more time. It was over as quick as it started, that was my night at the hair show. Hope you enjoyed.
