- Beauty in the 21st Century
DETAILS The beauty industry has been evolving since the beginning of the 21st Century. It has progressively become more and more inclusive, with brands releasing a greater range of skin cosmetics and textured-hair products. Although this is great progress, the industry still has a lot of work to do. There remains a lack of understanding on how to apply these products properly to diverse hair and skin types. Our ‘Beauty in the 21st Century’ event will have a variety of speakers that will discuss their experience with this issue, as well as provide tips about working with diverse hair textures and skin tones. SPEAKERS Moderator Danelle French Makeup Artist Amber Weston Makeup Artist/Educator Lorena Sommers Hairstylist Christina Lockett Model Kali Potter with LModelz Our featured influencer is Nikki Brown Makeup.
