About Afro Hair & Beauty Live 2019

KOL Cosmetics will be one of the many independent black-owned products exhibiting at AH&BLive 2019. Revlon Realistic launches all natural Blackseed Oil,  Africa’s Best share tips on how to use their new natural hair care line. Aunt Jackie’s are back with samples and premium giveaways.  Brand new from the Creme of Nature camp, the lush The Pure Honey collection. New to the show Reinass Hair and HAIRporrn with promotions to slay that lace front so treat yourself to new extensions, weaves, closures & wig units.

Needless to say, it was a foregone conclusion that The KOL Social would take the mantle of media partners with these trailblazers. ‘Before I entered the media industry, as a young woman from suburbia, Afro Hair & Beauty held great importance in gathering the community together and finding essential products and services all under one roof when it was hard to obtain elsewhere,” says The KOL Social Publisher Marcia Degia. “Throughout the years I have watched the show grow and evolve to become the biggest and best exhibition for people of colour and the The KOL Social team is so proud to support. Their service to the industry should not be under-estimated.”
