Fabulous in Sin City: IT&LY HairFashion in Vegas

Last week, I met a pit stop en route to Mexico – to spend the weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas!

It was one of those incredibly fabulous weekends where I wonder how this bizarre, awesome life is mine. I, along with two of my beauty blogging colleagues (who just happen to be good friends of mine!) Amber from Beauty Blogging Junkie and Patrice from Afrobella, was in town for the weekend to attend the IT&LY HairFashion awards ceremonies and workshops.

The event was super star-studded: We enjoyed tapas and copious cocktails (what else does one do at a party in Vegas?) along with top Celebrity Hairdressers from the sets of Gossip Girl, Dancing with the Stars, MTV, SNL, Sex and the City 2, Twilight Eclipse, and the soon to be released Burlesque and Tyler Perry’s: For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide plus Charlie’s Angels, X Men 3, You Again, Bride Wars, It’s Complicated, American Gangster, America’s Got Talent and numerous Disney Productions.

The setting for the evening’s kickoff activities was at the Hard Rock Hotel’s Body English Night Club — where, that afternoon, we also had our hair done.

Yes, we had our hair done…in a night club. (Hence, my resulting style at left shouldn’t be so surprising!) What can I say? Everything’s bigger in Vegas, especially my hair!

This star studded event also included 2 days of education sponsored by IT&LY HAIRFASHION NA. Their master stylists demonstrated the latest cutting and coloring techniques combined with editorial and high fashion styling.

The award recipient’s included: Bonnie Clevering (hairstylist on Twilight), Barbara Lorenz (hairstylist on Bride Wars), Colleen LaBaff (hairstylist on Burlesque), Ramona Fleetwood (hairstylist onJudy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer), Jani Kleinbard (hairstylist on How I met Your Mother), Betsy Reyes (hairstylist on Gossip Girl), Kenneth Walker (hairstylist on Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide), Frank Barbosa (hairstylist on Sex and the City 2), Russell Latham (hairstylist on America’s Got Talent), Pasquale Caselle (hairstylist in North America and the Caribbean),Daniel Ruidant (World Champion Hairdresser and Master of Masters Recipient), Marcia Hamilton (hairstylist for Jada Pinkett-Smith and Willow Smith) and Kimi Messina (hairstylist on Dancing with the Stars).

I had to leave early because of my flight to Mexico (which ended up being super-delayed anyway) – but it was crazy fun, and I hope to be invited again! (Especially if next time it’s in Italy!)
