Roc-A-Natural’s inaugural show in 2014 was a huge success with approximately 400 attendees and has continued to grow throughout the years. Now in 2017, with the move to Midtown Manhattan, they’re gearing up for an even larger audience. At this festival of all things natural, attendees will experience an insightful, informational and influential event that celebrates building self-esteem, natural beauty and empowers small business owners.
“This year’s R.A.N Expo is beyond living in a natural state of mind…it’s providing the blue print for building selfesteem through empowerment and Youth-Prenuers!” said Founder of Roc-A-Natural LLC, Dorcas Meyers.
“It’s been an honor to assist with cultivating and nurturing this flourishing Roc-A-Natural movement since its inception. Lack of self-esteem in our communities has contributed to sabotaging our quest for success in all aspects of life from our business aspirations to our personal relationships. The Roc-A-Natural Expo hopes to bridge the gap with thought provoking panel discussions, brainstorming healthy solutions and promoting positive reinforcement of self-identity for all” stated Vanessa Edwards-El, The Event Strategist.
“As the CEO and Hair Specialist of Essence of Beauty, EOB2 and Design Essentials products, I have been a part of the Roc-A-Natural movement in 2014 and 2015 and am looking forward to returning this year as the Pop-Up Salon. We will continue to assist with improving self-confidence through proper hair care and the workshop, “What You Need To Know To Roc-A-Natural and Protective Style.” stated Claudette Gyles.
Naturalist’s of all ages will gather to experience the talent and expertise of holistic healthcare practitioners, independent stylists, barbers, salons, bloggers, artists, performers and more.
