We had such a fantastic time at this year’s Atlantic Antic. It started out a bit nippy and the sun never did come out; it was damp and cool. Nevertheless, the Antic was as per usual, a huge success.


Quality vendors with handmade crafts, products, clothing, artisanal foods, street style in every direction as only Brooklyn can do it. Live music, DJs spinning beats including our own DJ Okera Ras. While Okera was playing Azuca by Eddie Palmieri the legendary composer and pianist stopped by to thank the DJ for playing his music. So amazing!!!

Here are three of the styles our experts created just for the Atlantic Antic.


Cleopatra hair is a sculpted style created by Kangue using just Cleopatra’s hair.  We can also add hair to give you more volume and or length to create this same style.


Zena’s hair was cut and colored by Andre to create with half blond half purple ‘Fro Hawk. Zena’s purple hair was what inspired me initially to color my hair turquoise.

Khamit_Kinks_LocsLynnette’s long, lush locs were styled by Andre to create a sculpted design.

Check out our FaceBook page for many more photos of styles and the colorful people from the village of Brooklyn. In the meantime,  Awww! So much fun, joy, work, laughter, and love… And some drama thrown in for good measure! What a day! Many Blessings! As always, Thank you for your love and support.
