    Why should you sponsor?

    The target for all of our events are college educated women of color ages 25+, with an average household income of $75,000. These women are avid consumers of products and services, live in top metropolitan areas across the country, and are the financial decision makers in their households. Our target can be described as time-starved and tech savvy, always looking for ways to save time and use technology to improve their quality of life. Our goal is to build partnerships with companies who are looking to attract more consumers within our core target.

    TresseNoire is the premiere on-location beauty service designed for women of color. We reduce the salon wait time for time-stared naturalistas to ZERO by sending our beauty pros to their doorstep. Clients enjoy the ultimate convenience of when and where they are able to book their appointments.

    Black Bride was founded in 1998, after the realization that women of color are major contributors to the $160 Billion wedding industry, but have minimal presence in most bridal publications, online, on bridal fashion runways, or on television. Black Bride fills the void, and gives readers what they’ve come to expect from the brand while providing the truest example that love comes in more than one shade.

    TresseNoire & Black Bride Magazine hosted Natural Tresses & Dresses events in 2015 and 2016 to sold out crowds! This unique bridal experience has brought together hundreds of Black women to discover new trends in the bridal space. The hosts focused on providing a unique experience for the ‘Naturalista Bride’, women who plan to wear their natural hair styled to perfection for their special day. From our previous events:
