Carolina Curly: Tournament Edition Annoucement

It is with sheer excitement and anticipation that we announce our next installment of Carolina Curly, the Tournament Edition, presented by Elle Johnson Co.!  Carolina Curly is dedicated to naturals and natural enthusiasts, and our goal for this series of events (spring & fall) is to celebrate natural beauty while offering a sophisticated environment of beauty professionals, panelists, and educators. Held in Charlotte, NC bi-annually, the Carolina Curly Natural Expo boasts 800+ attendees, and is for the woman (and man) looking for an engaging experience dedicated to all things beauty (skincare, makeup, hair care, etc).

We're back at the luxurious SpringHill Suites for our Spring '18 Tournament Edition Expo, and will be located directly across from the Spectrum Arena, home of the Charlotte Hornets.

Prepare to enjoy an amazing selection of vendors dedicated to naturalistas and natural enthusiats, interactive demonstrations, a vibrant panel, and a beautiful setting with a glass enclosed patio overlooking uptown Charlotte.
