Beautiful Textures Brunch + Makeover/Photoshoot (Straightened Hair)

Beautiful Textures Brunch + Makeover/Photoshoot (Straightened Hair)

I had so much fun this weekend! My weekends are generally super busy so early Saturday morning I headed out to Drexina Nelson’s Salon and Photography Studio with Beautiful Textures and  Atlanta bloggers , , , ,& .

We had such a great time. We learned all about Beautiful Textures 3 new products: Curl Definer Mousse, Curl Definer Styling Custard, and the Edges to Ends Silkener from the Beautiful Textures Content Specialist Kimberly Walker. We  got to get our hair washed and styled using the products. Since everyone knows I’m not afraid to straighten, they decided to straighten my hair! (Oh and let’s not forget a fabulous brunch with Shrimp & Grits!!)

My homie Whitney ended up styling my hair who works at Drexina’s salon. The products used: Tangle Taming Moisturizing Shampoo and the Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner . She blew out my hair and put on the Curly To Straight Flat Iron Silkener prior to blowing out and straightening.




I decided I wanted big curls instead of just straight so she gave me some nice pretty curls!


At the end, we got our makeup done and  Drexina shot photos of all of the bloggers and we also participated in some interviews about natural hair. The video will debut at the Style Bloggers of Color Conference in Miami this year.

Arkeedah and I joking around:



Here are some behind the scenes of the interviews:
