The Ultimate Beauty Social African Pride Beauty Tour 2013

African Pride Event BannerI attended the African Pride Beauty Social National Tour two weeks ago.   Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to stay the entire time because I had to work at the MAC counter that day, but I did at least get a few pictures and some info on how the brand has made several changes.

Once it was time for the event to start, we were officially welcomed by one of African Pride’s reps. African Pride Welcome RepNext Camila Crews, the African Pride Content Specialist, educated us on the new and improved changes with the brand.African Pride Rep explaining changes One of the first things she did was ask us if we knew about the brand.  Then she asked what African Pride products we were most familiar with.  There was an overwhelming response of the Braid Spray and the grease.  I definitely used to use both.  She acknowledged that these two items were their most popular products.  She also let us know that the braid spray is even good for people who have locs, or sew-ins. She then introduced us to a couple of brand new products and the redesigned packaging.African Pride products on chairAfrican Pride rep holding product 1 Next Camila showed us how the products had been used on two different models with different hair types.African Pride Rep showing model hairstyle African Pride Rep with Model holding productAfrican Pride Rep with Model 2 African Pride Model 2 backAfrican Pride Rep with both models
