THE OHIO NATURAL HAIR, HEALTH & BEAUTY EXPO
About the Expo
The purpose of The Ohio Natural Hair, Health & Beauty Expo is to Inform and Inspire the natural hair community through Educational Workshops, Encouraging Forums & Exhibits and Empowering Performances by local artists, exhibitors and professionals.
It is the only event of its kind held in Toledo, Ohio. Now in its fifth year, the expo has drawn over 1000 visitors from across the US! It began with an idea to provide an event that promoted the empowerment and embracing of natural hair and beauty in the local community. Many have heard of these types of events, but weren’t able to travel the distance to attend. Through the building of relationships in the community with free workshops and classes throughout each year, The Kitchen Salon is the main sponsor of this annual expo.
Megan Davis, Expo Director, says, “This Expo has something for every natural hair enthusiast — with info-filled seminars, hands-on workshops, entertainment, food, and several vendor booths exhibiting the latest apparel, products, tools, and supplies. It’s like a natural hair family reunion! “
There is a large vendor marketplace, frequent demonstrations, and performances on the center stage. Professionals and business owners lead workshops throughout the day in separate classrooms.
