The Glass City Natural Hair Symposium Brings Curls, Culture and Commerce to the Local Community

By Megan Davis

The Truth Contributor


The Glass City Natural Hair Symposium, a celebration of Curls, Culture and Commerce, is being held on April 28, 2018. The symposium focuses on natural hair, whose curls and texture defies gravity and is deeply rooted in self awareness and self sufficiency and will provide an engaging experience, from the crown to the soul. In addition, model Meeche El and the University of Toledo’s Natural HAIRitage group will host the Young Naturalistas corner with activities for tweens and teens.  


The luncheon and panel will feature Urban Farmer, Sonia Flunder-McNair, keynote speaker, whose personal testimony of healing began with the fruit of the Earth followed by the panel of esteemed professionals, Dr. Hope Mitchell, Dermatologist, TiAnna Anderson, Branding Guru and Master Barber, TaWann Gaston. Topics of discussion will speak to the importance of how the natural hair movement has inspired many to live a more holistic life; and powers the multi-billion dollar beauty industry. Further, the panel will address common concerns and issues with African American skin and hair care such as hair loss, style trends, and finding your personal style. 


Each panelist and vendor represents the millions of African Americans around the world who have bypassed the social norms of what beauty should be, embracing their roots and using their abilities, skills and passion to become entrepreneurs, which is what makes the marketplace unique and valuable to the event.  


GCNHS will be held at the Heatherdowns Country Club from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., with the luncheon at noon. The vendor marketplace and ongoing activities will be open for the duration of the event. There are 2 admission levels of $5 for general and $25 for VIP Naturalistas. VIPs will have access to the lunch panel and receive swag bags with items from sponsors Oyin Handmade, TGIN, Avlon, Optimistic Movement, The Kitchen Salon, Sincerely Natural, Taylor Made Dreams and others. Registration information is available at www.thenaturalexpo.com or by calling 419-984-0395
