Here is where all the magic of beauty happens!

On site renowned experts and award-winning hair and makeup artists will be offering advice on skincare, natural styles and relaxers.

Some of the best experts include:

  • Noire Essence who will be presenting the truth about black hair. This means that all myths about black hair can now be put to rest as participants will be given FREE access to hair regimen tools which will inevitably improve the growth and texture of hair.
  • Dr Reginald Mitchell aka Dr Hair will be holding a seminar talking about everything to do with hair breakage, hair scalp analysis, children’s hair and hair styling tips you can do in the comfort of your home.
  • Natasha Briscoe, founder of Arise and Shine will be sharing information on diseases that are responsible for certain types of hair loss. And the natural remedies that can be taken to reduce symptoms associated with it.
  • T444Z which is dubbed as the miraculous hair food for natural or relaxed hair will be showing you how you can say good bye to your receding hair line, if your hair is thinning, if you wish to improve the thickness, length and health of your hair. This could be your time to hang up your lace front wigs and start rocking your own hair
  • You can find out how you can have flawless looking skin while earning an extra income with Mary Kay as well as bagging yourself goodies on the day.


This year’s fashion show is being sponsored by the British Heart Foundation (BHF).  The BHF is the UK’s number one heart charity and is committed to raising awareness of heart disease – UK’s single biggest killer.  Did you know that African Caribbean people are twice as likely to have a stroke as people of European origin?  The show will be introduced by Michelle White, whose heart problems began at just 26 but she is a survivor and a supporter of the BHF.

JJ Rocks Consultancy will also be hosting an impeccable fashion show and pop-up boutique, with an eclectic mix of designers from established labels such as Ade Bakare to emerging labels such as Binghi’s Boutique.

The theme will be “Empowering Women”: the confidence, strength and beauty that a woman exudes both inside and out.

The Boutique aims to encompass all that is beautiful and chic. From handmade accessories to exquisitely made clothing with influences spanning across continents.

This dynamic duo aim to raise the bar of Afro Hair and beauty Live with their conceptual show stopping surprises.

Be prepared to be wowed as ‘Fantasy Hair’ makes a comeback to the stage. The legendary hair competition will feature award-winning hairdressers who will battle against each other and have their creative prowess put to the test.

Stakes will be raised even higher at the ‘Battle of the Barbers’ as the winner will take home a prize draw of a £1000. The competition will see barbers go head to head in a 15 minute freestyle cutting challenge. Find out who will be able to cut the sharpest, fastest and most creatively!


Get your hands on the best products from around the world, brought to you by the people that make them. Skin serums, body butters, hair extensions and everything in between, all ready to be tried and tested by you!
