I got the opportunity to attend the final stop on the Sheer Luxe Beauty Luxury Hair Affair tour that ended in NYC on March 7th, after making stops in Houston and DC. The NYC hair affair featured an amazing panel headlined with the hair guru her self Mo of MoKnowsHair .
The creator/CEO of Sheer Luxe Anthara Carr took precise steps to make the NYC hair affair experience memorable, classy, and helpful. The trifecta was complete once you entered the building. Held at Kai Studio BK, the atmosphere was refreshing and the natural hair was in full bloom. With the high demand in throwing a natural hair event (especially a successful one) Anthara was present & pleasant at every moment of the event which shows that she not only the force standing behind the event but she is a force field standing behind the Sheer Luxe brand as well!
On to the main event
As the event started to get underway naturalistas flocked to the amazing vendors (+15 of them)! Everything from protective styling options, jewelry, clothing, and hair accessories were present that day. There was a little bit of something for everyone’s interest. I purchased a super cute necklace from one of the vendors (which I can’t currently remember but will update once I do) and was really close to buying some awesome tribal print maxi’s in preparation for this beautiful weather we are starting to get out in NYC.
Mo was up first with her detailed Q&A session in which she answered questions from the audience while demonstrating how to take down & style a three strand twist out into an adorable faux hawk. The panel that consisted of CurlsandCouture, HeyGorjess, EtcBlogMag and NaturalSilverSista then shared their insight and knowledge on all things natural hair. It was a beautiful sight to see! Shakira and I were so enthralled with the event that we didn’t get to take many photos, but using the hashtag #NYCHAIRAFFAIR on Instagram you will see all the love this event received from the loads of women that were in attendance. Women coming together to have a good time and share knowledge while uplifting positivity. What more can you ask for on a frigid Saturday in March!
Overall I rate this event a 9/10 only because I was pretty much freezing. Other than that it was an amazing beautifully run event! You can check out a quick two minute recap video from MoKnowsHair.com with some of the lovely ladies having a great time expressing themselves with their beautiful head of hair.
