2017 Ubiquitous Beauty and Hair Expo

Hey Rubies!!

I’m here with a little light-hearted fun from the Ubiquitous Hair, beauty and fitness expo held in the convention center of Downtown Washington, DC. This was my first time attending the Ubiquitous Expo, an old co-worker of mine told me about it last year and I knew I wanted to attend this year. I’m glad to have the opportunity to attend one day of the two day expo this year, because it was so much fun!

I will definelty be rounding up my girls next year so we can make it a tradition. There was music, vendors, celebrity appearances and workshops. It was educational, fun and well worth the price of admission! Although it’s a two day event here in the Keep scrolling to check out photos from the event.
