Description

Discover the beauty of Africa and the Middle East in NYC.

Lets #BeautyExplore Harlem in NYC. From visiting local shops, trying middle eastern/ African snacks, we'll deep dive into the culture by experiencing the spirit of Africa in the heart of NYC.

We meet at a local middle eastern/African influenced restaurant where we will have snacks waiting for you. We'll then learn about the healing properties of shea butter, skin oils, and other key ingredients in the African lifestyle. We start with a small intro to beauty about ingredients, the history of women and beauty rituals native to Africa. You'll also learn how to make Udi – Udi is derived from “oud” which means tree in Arabic. Small pieces of wood are mixed with rose water and perfume. Udi is used as a perfume for the house and also to bring out a women's inner beauty. We then are off to #BeautyExplore the local shops where you'll discover spices, teas, jewelry, incense, and beauty products, ext. We finish our tour by stopping by a women-operated beauty shop where we learn about head-wrapping, and learn how to correctly wear them with respect.

Each walking beauty tour is three-hours, where we share in native beauty traditions that are inspired by Stephanie’s global travels and women who share their beauty around the world.

INCLUDES:
1 snack + 1 drink + headwrap gift ( Learn the history behind headwraps and how to correctly wear them with respect)

Can't wait to #ExploreBeauty with all of you! Asante.

A little about your #BeauyGuide and why Harlem and African " The Roots"

Harlem is my home, I have fallen in love with the style and elegance of women who bring Harlem to life. I've discovered cool shops, and have had beautiful conversations with local women who share their passion for beauty. Their eyes light up when I mention I've traveled to Africa and loved their history and culture. With #Beautyexploring my own backyard I discovered the melting pot of Harlem that represents great countries within the Africa Continent. This a tour that focuses on meeting black-owned businesses making a difference. Join us for a day to explore and learn something new.
