The Healthy Hair and Beauty Expo (HHBE) — which hosted a virtual shopping event and marketplace last April — returned to its regular face-to-face staging on Saturday, July 30 at the Police Officers' Club, 34 Hope Road, St Andrew. The event granted shoppers access to on-trend make-up products, the best in natural haircare products, fragrances, candles, lotions and potions for #SelfcareSundays.
In between shopping, #HHBE Pop attendees participated in hula hoop, and question and answer competitions led by host Renae Wilson. The Zimii booth — fashioned like a chic hair salon by Pussbackfoot — was the go-to spot for naturalistas and protective style lovers eager to check out the latest hair treatments.
#HHBE POP was powered by Essential Beauty Pro (@essentialbeautypro) and sponsored by Excelsior, Essential Events & Marketing, Zimii, and Bella Belles Beauty Box.
