Networking Adventures | Chic & Kinky present Natural’s Night Out


Mini Fashion show showcase natural hair and some of the accessories from vendors

This weekend I attended  chicandkinky.com Naturals Night Out.  A great meetup of natural haired women to network, learn, shop, swap products and more.  There was a long line of naturals outside waiting to get in and have some fun. Held at the Openhouse Gallery with my best friend in tow I was on a mission to cover as much of this event as possible. Now though there were areas of improvement for the event.  I think a bit more organization was needed, actual panels, and I know some ladies felt the cost of the event didn’t reflect what they got from the event. But enough of that  I’ll focus on the good.  I spoke with most of the vendors. There was Yagolicious Cosmetics which features lip and eye makeup they were founded in 2009. Beautiful and bold colors. Nedjetti  a natural hair salon from  New Jersey was also in attendance. Which was great because it a bit difficult to find places to get your hair done that specialize in natural hair. These types of events are ideal for salons as far as generating new customers. Nedjetti also offers a step by step DVD that shows you how to style your natural hair GENIUS.

Many naturals have a staple hair product so not only did Naturals Night Out  have Jane Carter products on sale but  had Jane Carter herself there was quite the added bonus for attendees. When you get to meet the person behind the brand its a big plus for your business. It’s PR 101.

Something that I noticed with most vendors is that they brought their laptops with them.  Technology was on display.  Video montages, slide shows, testimonials provided a critical visual aspect. There were flyers with bar codes so you could scan your phone and be taken directly to the company’s website, of course social media was integrated in many of the promotional items.
