Beauty Changes Lives Experience NextGen Sneak Peek: Team Mizani

by MODERN Staff | April 14, 2018

“TEXTURE INSIDE OUT” will be the theme exposed by Mizani Mentor Jamal Edmonds and NextGen Artist Al Alexander at the 6th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience. The duo describe the theme as “the raw reveal of texture, THE REBIRTH OF STRENGTH!” On April 29, Beauty Changes Lives Experience attendees will see Mizani designs that rip away trending beauty topics, exposing that texture – even in its most vulnerable state – always draws on the core value of strength. “Nguvu” is a Swahili team that speaks to “the quality of being strong” and the term also speaks to the strength that will grace the runway during Mizani’s runway presentation. Tickets for the Beauty Changes Lives Experience held during America’s Beauty Show are available at
