Pin Me Up Workshop 2016

Our Pin Me Up Workshop has returned!! This event is the most requested and we are so happy to bring our Native women together for some fun. Not only did we have new classes on Vintage Hairstyling and 5 Pinup Points, we also added a few really cool surprises.

One of those surprises was Grownup Navajo herself, Jaclyn Roessel. She provided us with helpful mantras, and even performed two poems, “Dear Girl-Made-of-Honey” and “Seeds of Resilience” This definitely set the mood for our workshop and also left us with happy hearts.

Another addition were our guests from The iiSh, Amanda and Ashley. They were covering our event from beginning to end. It was great because they are new to the pinup world and we had the wonderful opportunity to show each of our classes live on Facebook. You can check out their awesome event recap by clicking HERE.

We had previously asked Jaclyn and Ashley to be our models for our demos and they happily accepted. Our participants were able to see the pinup transformation right in front of their very eyes. We explained our hair processes from setting to styling, and discussed our BBP 5 Pinup Points. Once again, we were excited to be sponsored by Suavecita Pomade, which is our go to brand for all of our hair needs!!

Our workshop included teenagers, sisters, and we even had a mom and daughter combo! We welcomed all women to enjoy a day of learning about what we absolutely love.

We hope that you can join us at the next event!

69th Annual Navajo Nation Fair

DSC_7351

On September 12, 2015 we gathered in Window Rock, AZ once again, but this time for the 69th Annual Navajo Nation Fair. Last year we walked the parade assisting the St. Michaels Association of Special Education with their float however this year we thought it would be great to lock down a booth space at the Chi’hootso Indian Marketplace for only day only.

Our 6 am call time was pretty early for the day but we had to get there before the roads closed due to the parade. We were all looking forward to this event because of our Vintage Western theme so the ladies arrived looking totally fab for as early as it was! Although it was pretty slow during the morning hours it finally picked up after the parade ended around noon time. Our booth was definitely one of a kind so it pulled people in to see what we were all about. Our tables were filled with our posters, prints, and scrap books of our past events. We even had an area set aside for a Western photo booth. It was great to see everyone put our props to use.
