Nikki Walton aka Curly Nikki was a pleasure to meet on Saturday. The place was packed with natrualistas, relaxed and weaved hair sistas and everything in between. It was fun looking at the beautiful women, the complete look from head to toe. I took plenty of pictures, but because it was in a club like setting, the lighting was dim and I didn’t get the best, but I’m sharing what I have.
The event was presented by Shea Moisture with special guest Q-Redew, and sponsored by Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey and Chambord Flavored Vodka. They had alcoholic drinks to honor Nikki, Curly Nikki Cosmo, Curlfriend, Kinky Bee and Shea Moisture Honey Bee. We were given a complimentary drink ticket and I had the Curlfriend and it was quite tasty. I must admit it was delicious. They had young women walking around offering finger food and samples of the Curly Nikki signature drinks. They were beautiful, gracious and kind servers. The hostesses with the Shea Moisture t-shirts on were helpful, full of product information and extremely friendly. I truly appreciate great customer service, something that is hard to come by these days.
Nikki got up and said a few words of gratitude and expressed how it felt to be back in her hometown celebrating the success of her new book, “Better Than Good Hair”.
I participated in videotaping my hair story, being interviewed and sharing my experience was fun and I wasn’t nervous at all. Do I have a new career in the making? Who knows. They had consultations for anyone that wanted to participate, we even did the Wooble! That was a lot of fun and yep I participated. I had to show those young women I could Wobble, I was tired when we finished though!
Nikki worked the room, very gracious with her fans and followers, taking pictures and signing her book. There wasn’t a bad attitude in the room and I made a friend that evening. She came to the event alone like I did, we stood in line together. Once we got in we went our separate ways but saw each other and hung out for the rest of the evening. I love real time networking, it was fun and we all need it from time to time.
I was so glad I attended the book signing event, I almost didn’t go. I was running late, didn’t take my twists out and when I stepped out the house to tripped over my own feet and fell flat on the concrete! My daughter had just closed the door and I called her like the old people do in the commercial when they’ve fallen and can’t get up. I was so disgusted with my clumsiness, but I got up, dusted myself off and got in the truck and kept going. My daughter tried to help me, she weighs 100 pounds and she was there more for moral support while I struggled to get up, poor thing.
The book signing event was a very professional, organized and just simply enjoyable. Curly Nikki was gracious and I had a wonderful time. Congratulations again to Nikki Walton and your continued success.
