On the 29th November, we held our inaugural NoScrunchie Good Afro Salon Awards at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in Embankment. We took lots of photos and thought we would share.
A lot of beautiful people came by and a bit of networking was done.
There was an amazing presentation from Dionne Smith, the curlformers ambassador!
And then came the salon awards! First ever afro salon awards where the winning salons are chosen by the customers. Power to the people!
