Today I had the opportunity to attend a really amazing event, Ursula Stephen The Beauty and The Brands Brunch at Cantine Parisienne in NYC. I have been a huge fan of Ursula, ever since she cut Rihanna’s hair into that signature asymmetrical bob that everyone copied quicker than the speed of light. Ursula is the Global Brand Ambassador for Motions South-Africa and the go-to woman for amazing hair and image consulting. She’s worked with everyone from Rihanna, to Rita Ora, to Taraji P. Henson. Just check out her instagram and you’ll see that she in behind the hair of many influencers!
The event was definitely a who’s who of influencers from fashion and beauty industry. The lovely DJ Olivia Dope spun the best of tunes while guest such as Shiona Turini, Claire Sulmers and even Renee Neufville (of the 90s music super group Zhane: Everybody move your body…now do it!) dined on fluffy pancakes, spicy chicken wings, mimosas and french pastries. I also finally got the chance to hang out with my blogger boos: Kela, Ty, Christen, Fajr and Dani.
A good time was definitely had and it was awesome to connect with so many other people in the industry. Ursula told us she wanted a way to connect with all the people she meets on a more deep and personal level and that was the driving force behind The Beauty and the Brands. All in all it was an amazing time and I look forward to the next one!
