 In the midst of the electricity of New York Fashion Week, style giants and influencers gathered together for Beautiful Textures Hair Icon, an intimate dinner celebrating memorable African American hair icons - presented by BET and Cadillac and curated by the FifteenThirty Agency at the über exclusive Mondrian SoHo hotel on September 9th at 7:00pm.

Beautiful Textures Hair Care Presented "HAIR ICON", A Private Cocktail And Dinner Party In Partnership With BET and Cadillac

Situated downtown in lower Manhattan, the Mondrian SoHo shaped by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz' provocative design, provided the perfect panoramic view of the city skyline for the Hair Icon dinner. Fostering a hybrid of style, music, media and entertainment, Hair Icons created an atmosphere of true sisterhood and payed homage to the celebration of brown beauty and individual style.  

Strength of Nature's Global Marketing Director, Charlene Dance hosted this incredible evening along with Michaela Angela Davis (Image Activist, BET Editorial Brand Manager). Both women expressed appreciation for those who continue to support the Beautiful Textures brand and all it has to offer for multi-cultural, multi-textured women who refuse to be defined by society's standards of beauty. An emotionally engaging affair, attendees toasted to celebrating being no-longer monolithic and taking ownership in an event that was created just for them. Encompassing contemporary fusion faire and signature cocktail drinks, the night can only be described as the quintessential celebration of diversity during New York Fashion Week. Highlights of the night included Hair Icon partner, Cadillac, providing luxury vehicles that dropped attendees off at the steps of the Mondrian SoHo in style and attendees all walked away with signature Beautiful Textures Hair Care Swag Bags filled to the brim with the complete line.
