This post is a recap of an event that was covered by a brand. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
Lately, I've noticed that brands are  moving toward more intimate interactions with bloggers and influencers by hosting dinners & brunches for us. I really like this path that brands and PR firms are on.  Sitting down with a brand is way better than just emailing a representative. We're able to put faces to names, learn more about the brand in an organic setting, check out new products while meeting other influencers.  It's an amazing way to network and who doesn't like to eat? These are just a few of the reasons I happily accepted an invitation to join Sally Beauty for their Influencer dinner. 

I've been shopping at Sally Beauty ever since I can remember.  For a long time Sally Beauty was the only place (that I knew of) that carried products for black hair.  The dinner was held at The Grove Houston. The Grove has been on my list of 'Houston restaurants to try' for some time now and they did not disappoint.  The event was also co-hosted by Monica Stevens aka Mo of Mo Knows Hair.  Mo is a well-known cosmetologist and hair stylist with her own NYC-based salon. If you're lucky enough to live in the Big Apple, you can schedule an appointment with her via her website

The event kicked off with a cocktail hour at the restaurant bar, where Sally Beauty treated us to some wine and cocktails. After awhile we headed back to the dinner space.  The dinner was held in a private room that was framed by huge windows and had great views of discovery green. I met a lot of new influencers at the dinner.  A lot of the influencers there had a strong focus on natural hair care, so I definitely wanted to follow some of them to pick up some tips for my 4C hair.  We heard from several brand reps on what they had in store for Sally, why they chose to host this event around different locations, and more about the Sally Beauty Brand.  We were even featured on Sally Beauty's InstaStory feed with our personal statements on what our hair represents to us.   After dinner there was a panel discussion with Mo, Agatha Ashiofu, Houston Lifestyle & Fashion Blogger at Irony of Ashii, and Karinda Cook, Director of Merchandising for Sally Beauty. 

After the panel, the event was opened up for networking, playing around with the hair and makeup products, and of course taking advantage of the step & repeat photo op! Check out some of my photos from the event below:

I tested out some of the Texture ID Foam on my wig because it was a little frizzy and I liked the results!
