First Central Illinois Natural Hair & Loc Conference
PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Over a hundred women came together Saturday afternoon to celebrate natural hair and all its beauty.
The first Central Illinois Natural Hair & Loc Conference happened at the George Washington Carver Community Center. The event was about embracing natural hair in all forms and educating guests about hair care, along with connecting local natural hair stylists with clients. There was a hair show and tickets were $49. Hairadox salon and natural hair services owner and event coordinator Aishah Bilal-Ali said events like these are important for women with natural hair to feel seen and learn about their hair.
“We just want to make sure you have what you need if you want to stay natural and even guess what if you straighten your hair we still have the haircare part that you need so that your hair can thrive under your wig under your weave you know or however you choose to wear your hair,” Bilal-Ali said.
The second half of the event was opened to the public. 30 vendors came out to sell hair care products, fashion and more.
