Energy was high at McCormick Place West in Chicago for the third and final day at America's Beauty Show as the show floor was inundated with stylists and beauty students soaking in the inspiration and hunting for trends and deals. Over at the Texture Pavilion, our six leading curly brands kicked off yet another day filled with live on-stage styling demonstrations. Highlights from the Texture Pavilion included:
- A visit from Farouk lead stylist Anna Cantu and her fabulously glam models showing off a new environmentally friendly color system.
- NaturallyCurly's own Michelle Breyer hopping onstage for her second stint as a model — this one involving a BLOW OUT from Dickey of Hair Rules!
- Jane Carter rising to the occasion and hooking up one of our inspired volunteers with a big chop!
Yes thats right! We had a Big Chop live on stage!
Love this lateral bouffant technique - pin to the side as opposed to the back!
TIGI's Creative Director Richy Kandassamy.
Bold color on the TIGI stage.
Curly hawk and an undershave with black accents for an edgy, but femme look.
This model was advertising clippers. Of course.
Lip tattoos were all the rage!
Multi-textural looks on the Sebastian stage.
Testing out some fashion color--the latest trend in color!
NaturallyCurly's Lori gets a fuschia streak in her curls.
Yes, we love Use Me's Maureen's hair too!
