2011 Fall World Natural Hair Show – Atlanta, GA
I finally got a chance to attend this show. I wanted to attend for the first time this past Spring, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I was unable to attend. So, I was really excited when tickets went on sale a few months ago. I purchased my tickets online several months ago because I was not sure if they would sell out or if the fee would be higher at the door. Next time, I will purchase them at the door. I have to admit that I was a little salty to find out when I got to the check out part that there was an additional $3.00 being added for “shipping & handling.” I would have been ok with that IF they were shipping the tickets to me. They DO NOT, instead you pick up your ticket at Will Call when you arrive. I purchased them anyway, just in case the price increased or, it ended up being sold out. I really did not want to miss out.
A friend of mine came in town this weekend to visit for a month and I took him along to experience the Hair Show with me. We had a good time, ate some raw foods (Kale Salad wraps with couscous), watched the hair stylist competition, checked out all of the vendors and (He) bought a few items. All in all it was a good show and I will be back next year with a few changes: 1. I will purchase my ticket at the door. 2. I will either take public transportation or remember to bring extra money for parking.
