Mississippi Natural Hair Expo

Mississippi Natural Hair Expo was founded in 2015. Due to limited natural hair resources in Mississippi, the expo was created to educate, inspire, and empower women who choose to wear their hair in its natural state. Our annual expo attracts hundreds of eager consumers who come to learn about the latest in natural hair care, beauty, products, and services. MSNHE has become a respected and valued voice in the natural hair community in Mississippi and beyond. Former keynote speakers include Monique Rodriguez CEO of Mielle Organics, cosmetic chemist Sister Scientist, Aisha Ceballos-Crump CEO of Honey Baby Naturals, and beauty influencer Romance Cox (Hey Curlie). Whether you’re natural, transitioning, thinking of becoming natural, or supporting a natural friend, this event is for you!
