Highlights from today's Texture Pavilion demonstrations.

The TextureMedia team is just getting back from the first of three action packed days at the country's largest professional trade show: America's Beauty Show (ABS).  This year, TextureMedia is hosting the first ever Texture Pavilion a dedicated stage and showcase area featuring six of the leading brands in texture including UseMe, Jessicurl, Jane Carter Solution, Hair Rules, Universal Beauty Products' My DNA, and Curly Hair Solutions. Each of these brands, and a few special guests including ARROJO and Avlon, will be hitting the main Texture Stage and doling out curl-centric education and styling tips.

Razor technique coming SOON! get excited! we are. :) CHS nylon brush trick has its own post here: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/products-ingredients/abs-2012-curly-hair-solutions-moisture-solution

I love the cotton candy hair extensions, if not for the guy that sells them. ;-)Rainbow curls look amazing, I guess you can tell that I'm into color, right? And that tri-textured look is something I would attempt, yes daring, I know! But what completely made me regret that I wasn't there were the razor technique(Erm, what does that do exactly?) and the nylon brush trick by Curly Hair Solutions. Could you please somehow show those demonstrations here on NC, for those who couldn't attend? It would be really appreciated!
