Fashionistas, prepare to empower your crowning glory as Candi & Co joins the line-up for MTN Pulse, the biggest masterclass and entertainment mash-up Mzansi has ever seen, set to take place at the Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg.
Taking place on 29 November, MTN Pulse Day is an event planned for the youth of South Africa.
It promises to be filled with panel discussions, exhibitions and performances from SA’s top game changers and influencers in the Fashion & Beauty, Entertainment, Lifestyle & Wellness, Sport, Gaming and Entrepreneurship sectors.
SA rap queen Sho Madjozi is the headline act for the event which encourages influencers to celebrate their passions, learn how to turn their dreams into reality and memorable success stories.
Alongside the “John Cena” hitmaker, MTN MashUp will feature a host of the biggest names in SA entertainment and sport, including funnyman Mpho Popps, Springbok Elton Jantjies and influential DJ and entrepreneur Lerato Kganyago.
Candi & Co will lift the lid on the current mood in hair and beauty as part of the day’s Fashion and Beauty Masterclass, with the hair specialist Danni Bowler, wig master Xola Madube joining forces with fashion designer Nandi Madida and makeup queen Clara Banx.
Candice Thurston says Candi & Co’s involvement in MTN MashUp continues the all hair-type salon chain’s mission of revolutionising the way women care for their hair and beauty and promotes entrepreneurship in the industry.
“Empowering women to be confident in reaching their dreams and embracing who they are is at the heart of Candi&Co. Understanding your hair and skin types is the core to any
woman’s confidence and at Candi & Co. we educate and equip women to love & care for their crowning glory,” said Candice Thurston, Founder and Chief Executive of
Candi & Co.
As part of the revolution and growth, Candi&Co. has also partnered with The Foschini Group and has launched a Candi& Co. in Foschini Fourways. This is a first of its kind in South Africa as you can now do your hair, braids, weaves, nails, facial and many more services on a Foschini account. Candi & Co. will have a pamper pod to showcase the power of brand partnerships with a nail, braid and candy bar in the MTN Mash Up activation zone.
With eight franchise partner female owners and over 100 jobs created, Candi&Co. is not only about hair and beauty but about inspiring the youth of South Africa to become entrepreneurs.
“We are proud that MTN has chosen to support Candi&Co. on this journey and partnering with MTN Pulse day is only the start of getting the youth ready to ignite their confidence,” said Thurston.
With doors opening at 11am, the all day until midnight event is designed for media and micro-influencers keen to equip and empower themselves by tapping into the Pulse of the latest trends and insights.
