CHICAGO, IL—Natural Hair Fest Chicago and AFROINTL Fashion Show CHI will be held on Sunday, July 14th at the Warwick Allerton Hotel Chicago, located at 701 North Michigan Avenue on the 3rd Floor in the Buckingham Ballroom, Chicago, Illinois 60611—-United States. Natural Hair Fest is a convention and celebration of natural beauty and proper regimens for hair and scalp maintenance through live product demonstrations, moderated discussions, and special guest appearances. Natural Hair Fest Chicago provides a supportive platform for those who embrace hair in its natural state, and also promotes the use of haircare and skincare regimens that contain natural, organic and vegan ingredients. Natural Hair Fest will kick-off the 2024 Tour de Naturelle’, a road show that allows emerging brands to engage new customers by way of face-to-face, in-person and online connections in 24 distinct markets across the United States.
Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair. This is the impetus behind the CROWN Act, the brainchild of State Senator Holly J. Mitchell of California. The CROWN Act became the first legislation passed at the state level in the United States that prohibits discrimination based on hairstyle and hair texture. This legislature protects the rights of Americans to embrace their natural hair, allowing all to wear styles such as braids, locs, twists, and knots in the workplace and public schools. The CROWN Act is now law in the state of Illinois; in addition; the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington have all signed the CROWN Act into law.
Having beautiful natural hair means having a healthy scalp, too. Since 2015, Natural Hair Fest has curated experiences centered around the natural hair community. The event boasts a full day of programming on the main stage to educate consumers and members of the beauty industry through presentations explaining the history of natural haircare, the nuances of haircare products, and the associated risks involved in chemical services.
“We promote self-love, self-care, health, wellness, and healthy hair and scalp irrespective of type or textures. We want everyone to embrace their natural hair unconditionally,” says Mark David Carter, founder of Natural Hair Fest Events and show producer/director of the 2024 Tour de Naturelle’. Before we start making our rounds across the country, we’ll begin festivities in Chicago along with industry experts and some of the most amazing products. We’re creating a wonderful, immersive experience in Chitown’s Gold Coast area, along Mag Mile at the Warwick Allerton Hotel & Resorts’ downtown location.”
