Good afternoon dolls! Today's post is about a beauty event I attended last week and what I wore. I was invited to attend the Aloxxi and People StyleWatch Hot Summer Hair Event which was held at the Stephen Knoll Salon in New York City. Guests were offered a hair color consultation, dry styling, make-up enhancement, polish change, delicious treats and a super fabulous goodie bag to take home! Not too shabby for a Wednesday night.
First, I met with a talented Colorist named Anthony Fiorentino aka "The Prince of Tints." We discussed my thoughts on going lighter for the Summer, Keratin Treatments and his days partying at Studio 54. He felt it would be best that I stick to being a brunette but explained that I could still achieve lighter locks without betraying my natural hair color. Thank you Anthony for answering my random hair questions, it was a pleasure meeting you!
My hair color consultation was followed by a "dry" styling with Sandra Leon who has worked at the Stephen Knoll Salon for 18 years. She has worked with celeb clients and served as a Hairstylist on various television shoots. The first thing Sandra noticed about my hair was that I prefer it straight, she offered to tame the frizz that developed throughout the day in the scorching heat and I said absolutely! Sandra used the following Aloxxi hair products to get my hair pin straight: Restorative Hair Serum, Dry Shampoo (just a little on my roots to add volume) and Flexible Hairspray (ideal for controlling frizz and fly-aways). After setting the hair products with the blow dryer and flat iron my hair was done! Over the weekend I used the same Aloxxi hair products to straighten my hair and I could not believe how amazing my hair looked. The Aloxxi products are great and affordable, I will definitely purchase them again once I run out.
Skirt: Forever 21
Wedges: Old Navy (old)
Nail polish: Sinfulcolors in Feeling Great
Lipstick: Befabulosa in TheNewGirl ($14)
It felt like 100+ degrees on the day of the event so I wore light fabrics and
wedges. White t-shirts are a Summer essential for me because they are comfortable and easy to dress-up. You can dress up a white t-shirt by pairing it with a blazer, statement necklace, scarf, etc. The lipstick I'm wearing in these photos is called "TheNewGirl" and it was named by me. A few months ago, Befabulosa had a contest to name a new lipstick they were launching and I won!! Learn more about Befabulosa-WhyBeOrdinaria!™ by clicking here.
Learning how to fight frizz using Aloxxi hair products and hot tools. Can you tell how focused I was? Lol
Enjoying every minute of it!
Forgot to put my pinky up! Lol
Thank you so much Sandra for doing my hair! I'll definitely keep your pointers in mind going forward.
I thought this was a clever idea for keeping the wine and champagne chilled
I have already used most of the hair products that Aloxxi gave me and I have to say that I love them!!!
