I am soooo excited to get down to ESSENCE Fest this year. Thankfully, I am smarter than the average bear and will be getting down there before the crowds so that I can take in some great food and scenery. After that it is non-stop!
One of the great things about ESSENCE Festival is all of the great brands, personalities and experts it brings to the Bayou. And one of my favorite brands will be back! If you can recall, SheaMoisture was a title sponsor to our lovely charity event last year. Our guests were able to enjoy generous gifts from the hair, skin and now color brand!
2014 will bring back their pop up shop (even the decor was doggone awesome) to the French Quarter. Check out my experience last year, here and here. The shop will host parties and of course complimentary makeovers, skin consultations and the whole nine with a minimum purchase. Expect flash sales and deals. Of course they have special guests! The line up includes: celebrity stylist & beauty ambassador Diane C. Bailey, celebrity makeup artists Jeremy Dell and Mimi Johnson, board certified dermatologist Dr. Yolanda Lenzy, Jenell Stewart of Kinky Curly Coily Me, Jessica Lewis of Mahogany Curls, Miss Vaughn and Imani Dawson of Tribe Called Curl.
Friends, this is NOT a game!
Be sure to like their Facebook page for more up to the minute additions and such! They are also looking for folks to help out at the shop. Some of my New Orleans friends should get in on that action! That information can also be found on their social media networks.
