[Recap] NuGrowth Meetup @ OyinHandmade & XS

The meetup today was amazing, to say the least! The diversity of women that came out to the event was truly wonderful. There were women transitioning to natural hair, women with Sisterlocks, loose natural hair, and even someone that just did the big chop a week ago! In addition to the stunning women in attendance, the venues were really nice!

First we met up at the OyinHandmade shop in Baltimore, MD and mingled, did some shopping, and learned about all of the great products that Oyinhandmade has to offer. 

Danielle & Victoria - Danielle BC'd last week!
Lela & all the products she discovered
Sharing styling tips!

Everyone's hair was looking really fabulous and I definitely got a lot of HAIRspiration!

Amma's Braided Updo- I loved it!

Kenya's Twist Out - She gave a tutorial to achieve to frizz

Beautiful Sisterlock Rocker!

Biggest 'fro at the meetup! 

After we left OyinHandmade, we walked down the street to the XS Restaurant for lunch. I booked the entire top floor for the meetup, so we had lots of fun sharing tips, chatting about our natural hair journeys and just getting to know each other. 

I had a great time and I can't wait until the next meetup! If you're in the DC, Maryland, or VA area definitely join the NuGrowth Meetup group [HERE] so that you don't miss the next one!
