I had the privilege of joining what felt like millions of naturals, well known naturalista  CurlyNikki, and actress Tracee Ellis Ross at the Optimum Salon Haircare event last night. Let me just say the event was beautiful. CurlyNikki has done it again; another event with excellent an turn out.

As the space at 404 NYC was adorned with big fros and mini fros, naturals had the chance to mix and mingle with each other and talk hair, alongside their complimentary drinks. We also got the chance to learn more about the Optimum 6 in 1 miracle oil. Yes, a naturalistas dream products and seeing more than one other person in a room full of people with hair like theirs.

Tracee as she welcomed guest waiting on line. Them curls! That Dress!

Who said DJ’s couldn’t look stylish and play dope music. The music was on point!!! She was turning the tables to the beat of every naturals’ song in that place. I was loving every moment of it.
