T&T Hair and Beauty Tradeshow 2013

Who doesn't love a tradeshow? This is my second year at the T&T Hair and Beauty Tradeshow at the Capital Plaza. It was once again a 3 day event (May 4-6th) and unlike last year when I popped in on the Saturday, I attended on the Sunday instead. Oh boy was it ever so busy with the room filled with patrons that it was just a bit difficult to properly scan each booth. Nevertheless I did get a chance to capture some wonderful moments that I would love to share with you. Let's begin :)

Let's start with the HAIR! Wow this show had a large focus on hair products staying true to the name of the show. At the time I was attending I was lucky enough to see some of the contestants in the hair competition. The designs were detailed and really showcased the talents of the hairstylists. I was in love with these pin curls :)

Now onto the hair products! While there were many booths and products to choose from; these were some of my favorites since these are new to our local market. Let's meet Keratherapy! First time in Trinidad!!!

The Keratherapy experts were on hand to give wonderful demonstrations on their products which unfortunately I missed :(but be sure to check out their facebook page and hair and beauty show in trinidad album for more exciting pictures). 
What I loved about Keratherapy is their amazing technology of combining keratin, silk amino and fruit acids to give your hair shine, strength and smoothness.
And for your local folks, be sure to check out authorised distributor: Fifth Avenue Express Salon and Beauty Supplies to get your hands and hair on Keratherapy :)

Moroccan and argan oils seems to also be in focus this year. Meet the new Suave Moroccan Infusion distributed by Unilever. This line is infused with the authentic Moroccan oil that gives you instant shine and softness. The gorgeous Unilever ladies at this booth were kind enough to share some samples on the spot and I did notice the immediate change to my slightly dry coloured ends.

The Tresemme' booth was beautifully displayed and on the spot demonstrations assisted patrons with styling tips and tricks. Some of my favorite Tresemme products are from the naturals line.

And since I'm a nail art fanatic, I could spot this booth a mile away with the interesting nail strips and stencils.

Lash extensions anyone? Meet MyLash Canada; at the show it was possible to get a full set of lash extensions for $TT300. And they carry a range of makeup as well. 

Did I save the best for last? You decide! Seeing Palladio makeup up close and personal was indeed exciting to me. This brand has all natural herbal makeup infused with ingredients such as aloe vera, ginseng, gingko biloba and green tea! Some of their popular product includes their rice powder; known for its oil absorbing properties, great for setting makeup and silky finish. This brand is being distributed in T&T by PRD Holdings Ltd.

What an exciting day with wonderful new discoveries on products available to the average consumer. I can't wait to see what else is in store for me next year. See you next year!


Find me on Twitter or Facebook! I would love to have you there!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
