Nubian Events Celebrates 50 Years of Iconic Black Hair

So Friday saw BnnGirls attend Nubian Events Dinner and Show depicting iconic afro hairstyles from the last 50 years. Hosted by Henry Bonsu who talked us through braids and beads to fros and puffs. Naming influential and political black men and woman such as Angela Davis, to today's Lauren Hill and Janelle Monáe.

The models with event organiser Mimi Traore








The creatives From Left to right, fashion designer Nkwo, Hair stylist Morris Roots who specialises in locks and natural hair and show producer and hair stylist Angela Plummer







We were served an amazing 4 course dinner of Sashimi, beef in peppercorn sauce and finished off with a delicious coconut sorbet, passion fruit cream, and chocolate spring rolls.



We would like to thank Mimi Traore from Nubian Eventsfor throwing such an inspirational event with amazing people.

Nubian Events

We were emailed about this amazing event by Nubian Events that is happening on Nov 12 at the Michelin Star restaurant Nobu.

It is an excellent opportunity for professionals connected with Africa to meet and engage with other influential and successful professionals coming from a wide range of disciplines - legal, arts, finance, culture, investment, media, fashion - to develop business opportunities, forge ties and find new clients in a convivial atmosphere in an inspiring venue.

You will be welcomed with Champagne and canapés and regaled with a lavish four course dinner to the accompaniment of an Afro-Jazz band followed by the evening's highlight: a 20 minute cat-walk show celebrating natural Afro-Hair and its social and political impact over 60 years!

Fashion by Nkwo and hair by the amazing Angela Plummer and Morris Roots.

Tickets are priced at £75 for this fine dining and amazing creative cultural experience.
