The 2nd annual Blossom & Sol Natural Hair Festival is coming the week of SXSW. The festival will feature brands in cosmetics, natural hair, skin care, and fashion. The Blossom & Sol Natural Hair Festival is expected to have 1600 attendees for its 2019 gathering, making it the largest outdoor natural hair festival in the state of Texas! The festival will include an eclectic mix of live musical performances, natural hair demonstrations, women’s wellness panels, mental health workshops, and so much more. The gathering is an opportunity for people with natural tresses of all textures to come together to celebrate and embrace each other’s diverse beauty. Our mission is to stimulate, capture, and cultivate the minds of our audience by providing an experience of Black thought, beauty, and art through the lens of the diaspora.
