Hue embraces women of color and celebrates amazing brands and businesses that offer products for the beauty industry. The HUE Beauty & Natural Hair Affair Tour is taking the mega successful event on the road to Austin, Texas during the epic SXSW, of course hitting up NYC, where it all began and lastly Chicago, Illinois.
Attendees in some markets rarely get to have an in person HUE experience. This HUE Tour meets the demand for a larger scale events – incorporating a mix of small, medium, and large businesses cater to a target demographic across multiple markets. HUE is an affordable event for consumers to come shop, learn and explore their favorite brands as well as discover new brands.
African-American women spend over 90 million in the beauty industry. They are educated and informed on quality ingredients and want top hair care options! If you didn’t know a new natural is re-born every minute! …And with the future being FEMALE we demand quality, innovation and options. HUE was created because of the strong impact natural hair has caused; changing the face of the beauty industry! Our mission is to provide a platform to inspire, educate and directly connect consumers with top brands and businesses. HUE Beauty & Natural Hair Affair was conceived in 2016. In May 2016, we had over 800 touch down in Brooklyn, NY. We continued in May 2017 with HUE Affair BROOKLYN II with over 900 attendees and 30+ top business and brands and we’ve decided we need to take HUE Affair on the road in 2018. We are including Austin, Texas during SXSW as the first stop of three major cities. SXSW was the record and ground breaking natural hair event during the Quintessential Naturals tour in March 2017. With over 4000 RSVPs and 1600 women in the building we decided to add this as the first stop of this amazing tour.
