    It was nice meeting you ladies. Would love to do a brunch and there are also so many summer festivals coming up as well!

    Hi, I was there but the workshop on styling went longer than expected. If anyone was in Felicia leatherwood's class, I was wearing an orange colored dress and have type 3b and 3c hair :-). I didn't get a chance to meet everyone/anyone but it seems like there are a lot of people interested in meeting up so maybe there can be another buppy event for naturals. Leslie? Maybe we can swap products we bought today since we know finding the right stuff is an endless process.

    The hair show was just ok in my opinion. I've been to several out of state hair shows and although this wasnt the worse I've been to, it wasn't nothing about it that would make me go next year.

    Did everyone get the email about the lineup? I can't wait to get my goodie bag!!!!!! Okay I have been advised that Shea Moisture will more than likely only accept cash, so I suggest we apply that for the entire event just to be safe. I have decided that I will probably attend classes during the first part of the show and then hit up the tables. So excited!

    • Leslie

      Rachel I just figure my goodie bag is whatever I purchase BUT now that you mention it, hope there is some free stuff or giveaways!

    Hi everyone. Here with an update: I am going to meet you all in the hotel lobby across from the front desk at noon. At that time we will meet and greet and devise a plan for a late lunch at the Mexican Post if everyone likes that place! FYI, there is a $5 parking lot across from the hotel between 15th and 16th. My number is[masked] if anyone needs to reach me!

    Excited to see you all Saturday!

    Hi Everyone since we're speaking about the hairshow.. I wanted to know if anyone knew any or is A Natural Hair Stylist?

    • Alisa

      I can flat twist! Orchid Blue on 45th and Chestnut is also really popular. I go to Jus Roz on 45th and Sansom when I need a press and a trim, but I think Roz does natural styles too.

      1 · May 2, 2013

    • Dee

      I would be able to support a meetup and teach how to braid, two strand twist, flat twist, extensions, whatever....Let me know.

    Hey everyone! So just wanted to touch base and let you know, when entering the discount code( BUP5) it is case sensitive AND I believe the discount cutoff is tomorrow so be sure to get your tix today!!!!

  • Leslie

    Hey everyone! I am going to bring name tags for our group and I was thinking we could put our Instagram names on them. Just in case we get pics taken or take pics of each other we can be tagged. What say you? If its cheesy let me know!

    2 · April 25, 2013

    • Leslie
