Update your RSVP for the 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 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 ie: costs more than $10, then a dish will suffice ;-)

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR RSVP on Meetup.com 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.  

Everyone should 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. 
 
Thanks all. Can't wait to see you!
