This Saturday, April 11, comedian Kim Coles will be headlining a different kind of comedy show — one that comes along with a natural hair party called Hairlicious.
At Voyeur (1221 Saint James St.) from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Hairlicious will host workshops and natural hair vendors, including Shea Moisture and Beautiful Texture, both of which will be holding free sample giveaways. Karen’s Body Beautiful products and Curl Kit subscription boxes will also be featured on the vendor floor, among many others.
Hairlicious will feature natural hair demonstrations like “The Art of Headwrapping” with Simply Netfah, “Loc It Up” with Kim Rollins of Philly’s Oxsun Hair Salon, and a workshop by Karen of Karen’s Body Beautiful. Each of these is included in the vendor floor ticket entry price, $5 in advance and $8 at the door. Tickets can be purchased here.
For the full experience, guests can purchase a $25 all-access pass, which includes access to the vendor floor happenings and two additional workshops. Coles will be hosting a workshop called “What Does Your Hair Say About You?” where attendees will receive a free Curl Kit swag bag from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. The workshop, which is included in the all-access pass, is $15 in addition to the floor ticket price. From 5:30 until 6:30 Tameeka McNeil Johnson, aka The Curl Whisperer of Tameeka’s Transformations, will be demonstrating live hair makeovers and taking appointments for her traveling hair suite. This demonstration is an additional $12 without the all access pass.
To close the festivities, Coles, known for her roles in “Living Single,” “In Living Color,” and “The Soul Man,” plans to bring the laughs at 8 p.m. along with Ayanna Dookie and Dennis Live. Also at Voyeur, tickets for the Kim Coles Presents Comedy Show are sold separately at $20.
