Natural Hair Styling Party

Hi All,

I'm getting super excited for the Natural Hair styling party on September 18th and I hope you are too! To make sure we all have a great time I wanted to give you an idea what to expect and to let you know what you should bring with you to the party. First of the business end of things....
This will be a  Potluck & Pizza Party. Please bring $10 to go towards drinks, pizza and wings or $5 and something to share (if you'e bringing something pricey (that costs more than $10) then a dish will suffice ;-) PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP. If you haven't RSVPed please do so ASAP and if you HAVE RSVPed "yes" and you can't make it PLEASE update it so I know how many people are REALLY coming. Ok and on to the fun stuff...... The plan is for all of us to share what we know about styling natural hair with one another. This includes what products, tools, accessories and techniques we use to style & maintain a "do". The idea is that we will all contribute by either demonstrating a style or product on ourselves (or someone else) and/or by volunteering to be an impromptu model for someone else. Don't worry, no one will be forced to do anything they are uncomfortable with.   I would like everyone to be prepared to share at least one style idea.  It can be something you know how to do OR something you would like to learn how to do. Chances are someone at the party will want to learn it or will know how to do it and can show you how. Some things to bring with you:
  1. The products you use to style your hair (just to show and maybe use in a demo)
  2. The products you use to wash, condition or moisturize your hair (ditto)
  3. The tools you use for the style you are sharing (or just in general) including combs, clips, rollers, hair pins etc...
  4. Your favorite hair candy 
  5. PICTURES, PICTURES and more PICTURES of styles you know and styles you want to learn.
  6. Natural hair books - styling and care - for us to flip through. 
  7. Products to swap 
  8. Anything else you'd like to share... tip & tricks, your favorite bloggers, YouTubbers, websites etc...
Some other things to consider...... If you would like to share a "set" style like a twist out, roller set, etc consider setting your hair the night before and taking it down at the party. You could even do one side of your hair completely and leave the other side set if you have the right hat or head wrap :-) so we have the before & after shot.  Be prepared to try styles on your own hair. Watching is one thing but doing is really the best way to learn Also this is a totally casual party with no "professionals" scheduled. I did go go cosmetology school eons ago and have 7+ years of styling my own hair under my belt but the idea is to learn from one another. Any professionals out there are welcome to attend and share as well of course (in fact please come)  but the plan is for us to get our hands dirty so to speak rather than just watch others demo styles we may not be able to replicate at home.  Take my survey to tell me what you want to learn at the party.   Thanks all. Can't wait to see you! Bobbi Williams... I am and always will.... Be Napptural

    I'm so disappointed I missed this event. I have a question. Can anyone recommend a salon or hair dresser in the EAST BAY where I can get a good haircut and they are experienced with natural hair???? Much thanks!

    @ all the ladies that can't make it tomorrow. If all goes well we will definitely do it again soon. I'll try to plan the next one for a Saturday. We're officially going until 5 but I foresee us going longer. If you're going to be really late give me a call at[masked] before you head over to see if we're still going strong. -Bobbi

    Unfortunately, I have plans on September 18; otherwise, I would be there.

    I know the meetup will be a success and can't wait fir the next one because I am extremely style-challenged. As a result, I don't comb/style my hair a lot and often wear hats. So, I need you ladies.

    Looking forward to meeting other naturals and learning about new products and styles.

    We (the attendees) will be sharing our favorite styles so if folks with locks come then we'll be doing demo's of those too. I'll send out an email soon so people can let me know what styles they will be sharing and what styles they are hoping to learn.

    I used to rock a fro and judging from some of my pictures from those days, really could have used this type of event back then. Are you anticipating any demos for styling locs?

    We need to rent a room somewhere to make this happen. Any ideas about us putting or money together to rent a room in Oakland?

    Can't make it on the 4th, but am game to come to West Oakland. Any other Friday should work for me....

    This sounds great. I feel like I always rock the same hair style. I live in a studio with barely enough room for me :-) so my house wouldn't work. But I have a Clipper Card and a car so I can travel.

    I also love the idea. I live near the West Oakland bart station. I can accommodate 15-20 people comfortably. I am available the weekend of March 4th. Friday evening would be nice.

    I am in the same situation as Lisa. I like Rhonda's idea a lot. Would love to see this happen!

  • Lisa

    New to the group and new to being natural. I love this idea, i"m already feeling the pressure to perm, but I'm fighting. Hair is really short and I'm not sure what to do with it. Let me know if we can make this happen.

    Yeah because it's good to meet places and hang out but I think most of us would like to see some demonstrations and some new methods in how to style our hair. You know?
