Shades of Beauty Live is an exciting new event which makes its debut this August, just at the start of Carnival this weekend. Scheduled to take place 24th and 25th August, Shades of Beauty Live will showcase the latest trends and best there is on offer in hair and beauty for women of colour in the UK. The event is the brainchild of sister duo Grace Adesina and Christina Anyiamuka, the British born Nigerian entrepreneurs who were inspired to create a spectacular and inclusive show on a grand scale.
Commenting on the what inspired them to create the show, the ladies said: “We do see some shows for women of colour but very few on a grand scale. Women of African Caribbean descent spend around 80% more on cosmetics and twice as much on skincare than their non-Afro-Caribbean counterparts. More and more brands are becoming available online and showcasing their diverse product ranges and it will be great to bring these brands to life by giving them, as well as the traditional bigger brands, a platform to meet their customers and introduce them to new ones.”
The show will also feature live panel discussions and hot topics of debate, and visitors will hear from key beauty influencers, entrepreneurs and celebrities. Last week Team Shades of Beauty Live premiered the above video promo giving audiences a glimpse of what to expect at the event. Stay tuned for more updates right here and you can also follow the brand on Instagram here.
