Hair we are Today :-))

Sunday, November 13, 2011
Hi guys! so I'm back from the hair trade show held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and it was auh mazing.I went there 1 O'clock and left 5. I must commend The National Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists for putting on an event of this magnitude in Jamaica , and also , for allowing it to be at only $450. There were several booths and a main stage where the "hair competition " was being held. Trade show participants include : Bijoux , Britmach Industries , Clairol Textures and Tones, Digicel , Discount  Beauty Supplies, Lockology Natural Hair, M.D.R.M Co. Ltd, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Monica Shakespeare ( Moniques Beauty House) , Motions, Pioneer, ShalShani, Scotia Bank, Shirley's' International, T. Geddes Grant Ltd and Tropical Isle Jamaica Ltd. Commodity Ltd. L.A Pink and Facey Commodity.
There was a special presentation by an international hairstylist on "How to professionally sew in weave". This was followed by the "giveaway" segment. I won nothing :-( . The major items being given away were from a new human hair line being launched in Jamaica called "Soprano" , this comes in the "Brazilian Remi" as well as "Deep Ripple" among others. I loved the fact that they gave away high quality products .. Remi .. thats "dream hair" girl. There were two things i did not like. There was no food , seeing that its a hair show and all , they should have had "girl food". Mini cupcakes,water crest sandwiches and so on. Also! I was soooo disappointed in the Garnier booth. The women knew nothing about the products. I asked about two hair dyes . It was the Garnier Nutriesse and also the Sleek and Shine. I asked what the difference was between the two products and the reply was " maybe one has more "shine" than the other". Maybe  ? I think they should have trained people briefly on the products. Garnier is a really big (expensive) brand. Next time .. get people who are knowledgeable of your products Garnier! #I'm just saying#  However , i'm also commending Garnier in the same breath , they were giving away free make overs with the purchase of any of their products , which were at discounted prices. I bought myself an anti frizz serum and made my way over to the make up chair :-)) . Below are highlights of the Hair Trade Show 2011.
