I had never used Jessicurl before, but I was intrigued by several of the products–ridiculously fierce stylist, Isabel, created the tightest, most flawless Bantu knots on her hair model, Bobbi, that I have ever seen. She braided in some purple pieces, then zig-zagged them around the back…I can’t even explain how hot Bobbi looked.
This event was for men and women who spanned all over the curly spectrum, and demos were done on kinky curls, loose waves, and even locs. The poor loc model didn’t know what he got himself into when his stylist brought the scary loc-making tool towards his head and started doing her thing…let’s just say, beauty can be a little uncomfortable. She did what she came there to do, though–she used a Jessicurl refreshing spray on his hair and twisted it to perfection.
The giveaways at NNO were crazy…my new friend, Rachel, is a total PJ (Product Junkie) who CLEANED UP! Even her mom won a prize!
There were so many cool products discussed and demo’d that I have to talk about ALL OF THEM (at least the ones I saw) in another post. I can’t wait to try all of my samples. Also, the jewelry line Stella & Dot hosted a trunk show downstairs. Lovely Stella & Dot hostess Savona Charisse let me try on some of their incredible pieces. I will definitely be making some purchases-I can’t believe I controlled myself and left without my favorite necklace.
All evening long, people were touching each other’s hair, sharing product and styling info, and naming their favorite websites. The multi-colored bow in the pic above is from Boxing Kitten, and I was happy to find it online (as if I need more hair do-dads, but whatever).
Next week, I’ll be talking about all the products that I checked out that beckoned me to try them…which ones will mysteriously appear in my already cluttered bathroom?
Stay tuned for more pics, products, and people…more next week!
