Imagine it: you walk in the club, stunning onlookers with your enviably impeccable style, brand new Lou-Bous and the fresh stiletto acrylics to match. Yes, you did come to slay and your girls did, too. Snapping those fingers and fluffing your 'fro, you came into the place to not only celebrate yourself, but to laud all things curly, coily, kinky, wavy, and loc'd up!

If this sounds at all familiar, you probably know a thing or two about what happens when curl friends, loc sisters, and naturalistas get together: It's going down.

So what happens when you put these textured stunners on the runway in Atlanta, Georgia for the hottest trends of the season? Honey, you know it's LIT, especially because we came to not only slay, but to see the brand new Smooth 'N Shine! Formulated with all new ingredients and outfitted in sleek packaging, this incredible brand re-launch was eagerly received.

At Texture on the Runway in Atlanta, the Smooth 'N Shine brand re-launch reiterated to us all that textured hair is versatile, elegant, smooth to the touch, and always on TEN.

This runway show is living proof that texture is QUEEN! MCs Michelle Breyer and Nikia Phoenix opened the event with jubilance, introducing celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims and fashion designer Marrisa Wilson, both of whom described the looks they created as they were modeled on the runway.

Take note! You'll be seeing these 5 on-trend curly hairstyles all Summer 2018 long:

The Teacher: A+ curls that schools all onlookers.

It was thrilling to see every model styled to perfection, with every curl and sleek strand held gently in place with Smooth 'N Shine! My favorite look of the evening was the sunlight blonde Ghana Braids style that I absolutely MUST get installed for Summer 2018 and beyond. I love it because it can transition from a daytime work look to a polished night out rockin' style!
