Imena Event

I was invited to attend Imena Salon for their holiday party a couple weeks ago and I had known pretty much nothing about the company. I did my research and was pleasantly surprised at what I had read. So I am going to share the wealth with you all, I can’t keep the goodies from my Goddess’ now.

20121223-135400.jpgIMENA is commited to providing services that promote healthy hair in an atmosphere that values customer service and education. Using the best products that promote growth and conditioning, your hair will not only look and feel great but will be healthy. Part of our mission is to help women find and become comfortable with their personal style and to help them learn how to showcase their individual beauty. While the goal is healthy hair, the ultimate goal is to promote greater self esteem and inner beauty by highlighting one’s outer beauty.

So, this is a monthly subscription to a salon where you can pretty much get any style you would like. Now tell me that ain’t dope! If you are in the NYC area and are looking for an affordable and community salon, definitely head over to Imena Salon.

I was feeling pretty amazing to be part of such an amazing event at Imena; I was able to speak with some lovely Goddess’ about their experiences as a Imena member, and their own hair journeys and see a demonstration by owner Tami. We even got to got home with some goodies from ILoveMyFro.

Check out a couple pics. from the event below:

CurlyNikki, Tracee Ellis Ross & a ton of Curl girls

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!

CurlBox x KBB recap

A couple weeks ago I had he honor of being apart of a meetup hosted by the beautiful Myliek teele of Curl Box and Karen Tappin of Karens Body Beautiful.
On this particular day the sun was out and there was no doubt summer had arrived. It was a scorching 95+ degrees, as curlies from all over beared the heat to be apart of an event by two well know naturals.

It was a packed house; full of giveaways, champagne,mingling, as well as both Myliek and Karen shared there hair story, which was definite motivation. It was an amazing event and word on the streets is there may be a second round. Stay Tuned.

Curly Daze!!!!!

A couple days ago I had the Curl Daze experience. Some of you may or may not have heard about this event, which was hosted by the beautiful ladies of Asili Glam and Around the Way Curls. If you were not in attendance at this event en you were definitely missing out. Well fear no more I’ll give you a little recap.

It was definitely a CURL DAZE!

The event took place at Stash Lounge, located in an awesome hideout in New York City. There were lots of curls friends to talk curls, product and cocktails. I would like to take this time to thank Diddy for sponsoring the event as well. We were all Cirocin’ it, thanks to the amazing DJ playing all my tunes. We can’t forget the giveaways; no natural hair event is complete without goodies.
