D.C.’s First Annual Hair and Healthy Beauty Show
The Ubiquitous Hair and Health Trade Show: Where Relaxed Meets Natural Hair will be held the weekend of August 23 and 24. The event, open to all, will consist of two days of information, entertainment, giveaways, fitness demonstrations and commerce (including items that will be available for purchase) to help women embrace all facets of who they are. In addition to the trade show, featuring more than 70 booths of the leading hair, skin, body, cosmetic and beauty products and services from local and national vendors, the event will feature nationally known entertainers, including featured celebrity ambassador Chante Moore, rhythm and blues Grammy-Award Winner Chrisette Michele, the “Let’s Talk About It” forum discussion series on various health and wellness topics and the “Food For Your Soul” Celebration.
The “Food for the Soul” gospel celebration will be an opportunity for each woman’s spirit to celebrate and rejoice. Team Ubiquitous believes a healthy spiritual center is the key to the overall health of an individual’s mind, body and soul. On Sunday, guests will be invited in for a time of reflection, renewal and spiritual food. Attendees will experience the soulful singing of stellar award-winning gospel artist Maurette Brown-Clark, Grammy award-winning R&B/Inspirational singer Chante Moore, the anointed music ministry of Valencia Lacey and others as they lift their voices in worship and praise. Although primarily a consumer-focused show, Ubiquitous is pleased to partner with Kimble Beauty and have celebrity stylist and beauty expert Kim Kimble, star of WE TVs L.A. Hair, to present “Style Session with Kim Kimble” for hair stylists, makeup artists and cosmetology students. This promises to be a highly beneficial session for those professionals in the industry and well worth the tuition.
GBL Sales, Inc. is pleased to present the inaugural Ubiquitous Hair and Health Trade Show as an annual event, along with its sponsors ORS (formerly Organic Root Stimulator), Ambi Skincare, Bronner Brothers and Wells Fargo. They also have engaged great media partners in WHUR 96.3 FM, as well as Juicy, Hype Hair and Today’s Black Woman magazines.
The team has partnered with Metro DC (wmata.org), which is offering discounted admission tickets for SmarTrip card holders. The organizers encourage attendees, many of whom will be coming from within the D.C. metropolitan area in addition to other cities along the East Coast, to take Metro to the event and keep D.C. green.
The Ubiquitous Hair and Health Show is more than an event, but a movement to promote a complete way of being for women of all shapes, sizes and colors. It’s for every woman, everywhere in every way they want to be. They are giving back through this event, particularly to the Ina Mae Green Foundation, which champions education against domestic violence and the Love and Care Multiplied Global Mission, which provides resources and support to people in the country of Haiti.
The Ubiquitous team wants every woman to not only feel she is healthy, but to be affirmed, educated, tested and know that she is.
The Ubiquitous Hair and Health Show will be held August 23 and 24 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert St. in Washington D.C. For those taking metro, use the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Metrorail stop or Metrobus routes L4, L6 or 96. The cost is $12. For more info, visit ubiquitoushairandhealthshow.com.
