Why should you sponsor?
The Sapphire Beauty Expo will provide an opportunity to unite the supporters of the local beauty industry, to promote self-love, and combat societal norms that lead to self-hate and low self-esteem. The Sapphire Beauty Expo is an initiative aimed to draw attention to the importance of unity in our communities, relationship building on a grand scale and bring attention to women embracing their beauty thus creating an empowering experience.
Kandice is a self-proclaimed naturalista and president of Sapphire Beauty. After years of using relaxers in 2004 Kandice decided to begin her natural hair journey with natural hair by doing with a “big chop”, or cutting off all of her relaxed hair. In that process, Kandice went from shoulder length to one-inch length hair which launched her curly girl natural hair journey.
After the big chop, Kandice learned a great deal about herself and how to manage her sometimes unruly naturally curly, dry hair. Learning the types of product to use to produce a desire result was her biggest challenge.
Today more than a decade into her journey, Kandice can be seen rocking a variety of hair styles; from the wet and wavy to an Oprah Winfrey wash and press. Kandice is continuing in her natural hair journey and wants to share what’s she learned along the way with the Sapphire Beauty clients.
