This past Saturday, almost 500 fabulous naturalistas from all over the Midwest gathered for the first ever CurlyNikki Chicago Meet Up. Sponsored by top hair care brand Motions, all attendees received a goodie bag filled with products from the new natural hair care called Naturally You! Attendees also received a deluxe gift set of Strawllers, a unique hair tool that creates perfect spiral curls on all textures of hair. (Even NaturallyCurly's own Michelle Breyer tried them out and rocked a Strawller-do to the event!) Motions' Celebrity Stylist Ursula Stephen, who has worked on starlettes such as Rhianna, demonstrated three signature styles on models, showing how to use the new products to create two-strand twists, Strawllers sets and up-do's.
CurlyNikki, rocking a 4-day-old wash'n'go, was a-glow in the midst of sharing this special experience of meeting her Chicagoland fans with her St. Louis-based family who joined for the event. As always, Gia a.k.a. "Boogie" was in the mix cheesing for the camera and generally being adorable for her adoring fans.
