Paint n Party

Scoop N’ Swap, A Product Swap
Birmingham Natural Beauties partnered with the Birmingham Naturalistas to provide an educational afternoon featuring hair care professional Sonia Thames. For containers of products that were less than half-full, we “scooped” the products into a small container and labeled them. For containers of products that were close to being all-the-way full, individuals swapped entire products.
