thanks Marisol and Jenell for sharing this pic!

So last night was EPIC. I’m talking ‘everything possibly imaginable, cuz’ type EPIC, I mean, ‘every photo is cute’ type EPIC, or better yet, I mean ‘haters were instantly concerned’, type EPIC. No matter the anagram or witty phrase… (I plan on copyrighting them all, lol), we had a GREAT night last night (besides the foolish 4 hour drive home – me and my damn instant gratification.) NY, we always do it big!

Huge thanks to Tracee Ellis Ross and Optimum Salon Haircare for a fabulous time. 

Check out the view…

(…earlier that day) The Press Conference

the ‘puff bun’ created by Marie of St. Louis’ Shi Salon! She used my
products (Mizani’s Miracle Oil conditioner to co-wash and Living Proof
Full Cream and As I Am Smoothing Gel to style). She pulled it all up and created a donut bun and then we frizzed it up real good!

Prior to bunnin’ me up, she cut off 1-2 inches, more in some places to restore my cut!  I got another cut y’all! 

What I wore:
 Jacket- gifted from Romwe
Shirt and Jeans- Loft
Shoes- BCBG
diamond stud earrings- loaned from Miska Jewelers 

Up close with Tracee’s glorious and famous curls!

…Ish was so EPIC I had to rock two styles in one day.  So I rushed home, co-washed again and did a wash-n-go for the 6-in-1 Miracle Oil Launch Party later that evening.  I did the exact same routine and used the same products as I did in THIS POST, styled with Living Proof Thickening Cream and As I Am Smoothing Gel.

 
There were tons of gorgeous curlies, free drinks flowing, and complimentary cookie lollipops!
