We can tell you with absolute certainty that VidCon 2016 is going to be a freaking banger. Not only is there going to be an entire room dedicated to video gaming and gaming creators, but now VidCon have announced that over 20 beauty panels will be taking place over the course of the weekend featuring your favourite beauty gurus and lifestyle coaches. You’ll be able to find them in the aptly named, VidCon Salon!
Brand new for this year, the Salon will be a way for fans to communicate with their favourite YouTubers and gain an insight into various talking points, such as global trends, makeup looks, entrepreneurship, inner confidence and most importantly, self-esteem. But what’s most exciting is that these Salons will be taking place for the very first time OUTDOORS “to showcase this sophisticated sector”, said a representative at VidCon.
We can reveal that amongst the 20 beauty panels, produced by Chrystina Train (the former VP of communications at StyleHaul), you will be able to attend the following three events;
- Man Crush – Not Just Monday; in which Patrick Starr, Bretman Rock and MannyMUA talk about the power of male beauty gurus
- Beauty Crossing Boundaries; with international YouTubers Bubzbeauty, Mariale Marrero, Estee LaLonde and Fleur De Force
- The Colour Of Beauty; where MissRemiAshten, Dulce Candy and Teala Dunn will be representing YouTubers of different ethnicity, size and sexual orientation
Talking about her excitement to be involved in the debut of the VidCon Salon, Dulce Candy had this to say; “Being able to participate in panels that exemplify the importance of using one’s own voice as a beauty and lifestyle creator to inspire others to have confidence is one of the most rewarding gifts if having this role. I’m excited that VidCon is recognising beauty and fashion experts influence on the space by creating dedicated events for our community to learn form and share with each other. This year’s VidCon is going to be a lot of fun” – we totally agree!
You can find out more information about the creator, community and industry events that will be taking place at VidCon over the 23rd to the 25th of June on their official website, plus there’s more information on the beauty talks and who will be taking part.
