UPDATE 2/7/2010: Thank you guys for all the compliments and kind words on the forum, Twitter, Naturallycurly.com, and Longhaircareforum.com! It means a lot... y'all make me feel so special :-p
Now, who knows if it's possible (and the process) to take the dvr clip and put it on Youtube for those that missed it? If you've got the know how, shoot me an email!
UPDATE 1/31/2010: The show will air on February 5th at 4pm EST. My mini segment is toward the end of the show. DVR it!
This afternoon I appeared on the Tyra Banks show!!! I literally hit the floor when she shared that she visits and loves CurlyNikki.com!
The show was not about curly or natural hair...but they tied me in at the end! I was a nervous wreck for the past few days, but today, surprisingly, I was eerily calm. I was given the chance to tell (the short version, lol) my story, pub the blog, and she then introduced me as the newest edition to her website, Tyrashow.com! It was surreal...but an absolutely friggin' wonderful experience!
I of course, did my own hair(Twist-n-Curl), and the makeup artist respected my wishes to keep my face as natural as possible. I'm not a makeup person, so I was freaking out when 30 minutes had passed and we were not finished! She was really sweet, super professional, and did a wonderful job! I just got home an hour ago, and I'm still wearing the 'mandatory' false lashes, and have no idea how to remove them...I'll be googling that tonight!
Tyra is even more beautiful in person...inside and out. Her wardrobe, hair, and make-up staff were fabulous! Thanks to all of my lovely curly readers for your support...she received and loved your emails about CurlyNikki.com, and I'm certain it played a part in helping me get on the show!!!!
As soon as they give me the air date, y'all will be the first to know!
The Tyra Banks Show airs Weekdays from 3 to 5PM EST on The CW.
