African Pride: My Pride My Way Re-Launch

By:  NaturaLeah On:  March 20, 2011 0 Comments

This past Wednesday we were invited to attend the African Pride product line re-launch held in Atlanta, GA hosted by Toccara and Lance Gross. So, of course we went! It was a beautiful early spring night in Atlanta. So, I was looking forward to it all day. And the people with African Pride and the King Plow Center did not disappoint! At the door, we were greeted by lovely gift bags full of African Pride’s Olive Miracle products. Then, as you walked in, there were stations set up all around the room featuring stylists demonstrating the products in models with beautiful hair (they even had a natural hair station for us curly girls :-) )  and beauty experts giving mini makeovers.

As we walked around the room, we ran into several Atlanta bloggers/vloggers (see pics below) who were there to capture the event, too.

(Left to Right): Brandi Cohen (Living No Lye), MahoganyBella (MahoganyKnots), Alexis Felder (LexiwiththeCurls), Mae (Natural Chica), Adrienne (Me, My Hair & the City), Leah Smith (Living No Lye)

Sherita Daniels (Perfectly Pretty Makeup Artistry) and Leah Smith (Living No Lye)

Then, we entered the back room, where the fun began!  There was a wine bar and an OMG photo booth set up in the corner.  In case you haven’t heard of it (which I hadn’t until Thursday), its a camera set up where you can take pictures holding slogans representing the event.  The representative told us we could take as many pictures as we wanted, and we definitely took advantage of that ;-)  Next, Toccara and Lance said a few words on behalf of African Pride and Dondria Nicole made a special appearance.  Then, a panel of experts answered questions about haircare from the audience.

It was an exceptional event and we were honored to be there.  So, you know we’ll definitely be sharing the footage with you guys really soon!  But until then, I’ll share these pictures with you guys.  Enjoy!
