Nywele Festival is Kenya’s first  festival that is tailored to hair. 

The festival was to make its debut in March of this year but clearly the year had other plans. The event is a new concept to the event space and is a chance to celebrate something that is so inherent to us as human beings; our hair. Men and women of all hair types and textures are invited to attend and participate at Nywele festival. be it permed hair, natural, braided, kinky or locked, all are encouraged to show love for their hair no matter how it looks. Our hair is incredibly versatile and beautiful and should be celebrated always.

“We want people to celebrate the hair they have by showing people that their hair makes them who they are. We want people to see their hair as their greatest asset. An asset that enables them to feel royal and prestigious. Just the same way we celebrate royalty, is the same way we should celebrate our hair.” Said the event’s organisers.
