WASHINGTON, DC—Natural Hair Fest DC Metro and AFROINTL Fashion Show

DC will take take place Sunday, August 11th at the Holiday Inn Washington Capitol, located at 550 C Street, S.W. in the Congressional Ballroom, Washington, DC 20024—-United States. Natural Hair Fest is a convention and celebration of natural beauty and proper regimens for hair and scalp maintenance through live product demonstrations, moderated discussions, and special guest appearances. Natural Hair Fest DC Metro provides a supportive platform for those who embrace hair in its natural state, and also promotes the use of haircare and skincare regimens that contain natural, organic and vegan ingredients. This will be the second event of the year in the Nation's Capital, the first event took place in February and served as the official kick-off for the Natural Hair Fest 2024 Tour de Naturelle’ and Sponsorship Drive. Natural Hair Fest is a multi-channel road show that allows emerging brands to engage new customers by way of face-to-face, in-person and online connections in 24 distinct markets across the United States.


Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair. This is the impetus behind the CROWN Act, the brainchild of State Senator Holly J. Mitchell of California. The CROWN Act became the first legislation passed at the state level in the United States that prohibits discrimination based on hairstyle and hair texture. This legislature protects the rights of Americans to embrace their natural hair, allowing all to wear styles such as braids, locs, twists, and knots in the workplace and public schools. The District of Columbia set at the center of two states that have signed the CROWN Act into law, Maryland and Virginia; furthermore, the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington have all signed the CROWN Act into law.


Having beautiful natural hair means having a healthy scalp, too. Since 2015, Natural Hair Fest has curated experiences centered around the natural hair community. The event boasts a full day of programming on the main stage to educate consumers and members of the beauty industry through presentations explaining the history of natural haircare, the nuances of haircare products, and the associated risks involved in chemical services.


“We promote self-love, self-care, health, wellness, and healthy hair and scalp irrespective of type or texture. We want everyone to embrace their natural hair unconditionally,” says Mark David Carter, founder of Natural Hair Fest Events and show producer/director of the 2024 Tour de Naturelle’. As we make our rounds across the country, we're excite to the opportunity to celebrate with industry experts and some of the most amazing products in Washington, DC. You're invited to join us as we create a wonderful, immersive experience adjacent to National Mall, just moments away from the White House and the Washington Monument.”


Certain misconceptions as it relates to natural hair are still quite common around the globe. Natural Hair Fest functions to achieve these objectives:

  • Dispel misconceptions about Natural Hair;
  • Support those who feel challenged when caring for corse, thicker, fuller hair;
  • Help correct bad habits that lead to tangles, breakage, and hair damage;
  • Offer solutions for disorders of the hair and scalp;
  • Create a collaborative dialogue with industry experts on best practices and the benefits of natural hair;
  • Provide an open forum for Natural Hair stylists to showcase their talents, techniques, and
    services;
  • Provide a specialty store styled marketplace dedicated to the care and maintenance of healthy Natural Hair.

We bring experts from around the country to guide naturals and natural hair care professionals. We are in full support of those who aim to look their very best and understand the need to value their health and wellbeing.

“Natural Hair Fest is coming to the DC Metropolitan Area and will be downtown on Sunday, February 18th. And when we get there, Keith McKay, a licensed Barbering Instructor and Master Barber, will share his vast knowledge of the field and techniques, and Ansylla Ramsey, a trilingual, Web 3 Educator will help Beauty Industry Professionals (non-techies) in the DMV understand Crypto, Blockchain and Web 3,” says Mark David.


“We want everyone to celebrate their natural hair unconditionally. So, Black History Month is perfect timing to celebrate in downtown DC, the first leg of the Festival's 24 city "Tour de Naturelle," which features a marketplace of unique vendors that offers products and services that compliment natural, spiritual lifestyle choices. We will be moments away from some of best attractions the nation's capital has to offer, as we celebrate Black History."
