Celebrity Hair Highlights: Rihanna

Celeb Hair Love of The Week_Rihanna_BloomandGlamour

Sometimes, the most simple hairstyles are actually the best!  That’s exactly why this week, the updo that Rihanna’s was spotted wearing at this year’s MET gala is still on my mind.  Her messy and tousled updo is the true meaning of effortless style. I love how the subtle wisps of hair lightens up the voluminous hairstyle and her face. Overall, this look is the perfect touch of sophistication for any special occasion.

Celebrity Hair Highlights: Tika Sumpter

Celeb Hair Love Of The Week-2

If you’ve been thinking about going short and simple for the summer, you are not to blame. Having hair pulled up and away from our necks and faces can be a relief from heat and humidity. Another bonus of sporting a shorter hairdo are the numerous style options that are available.

This past weekend in New Orleans during the Essence Festival, actress Tika Sumpter was spotted wearing a fuss-free, wavy pixie cut. I found the retro-inspired hairstyle to be refreshing and chic! In many cases, women wear the pixie cuts spiked or coiffed up – but adding waves can take the look in a posh direction. To maintain the wavy pixie style, a good texturizing spray along with our LumiBloom Argan serum is ideal for pulling off a sleek look.

From Business To Beignets: My Essence Festival 2014 Recap

For the last 20 years, the Essence Festival has been the center stage for music, fashion, business, networking and fun! Festival attendees come ready to be entertained, and schooled on topics ranging from lifestyle to business and leave with an overwhelming sense of inspiration and redefined purpose. As a first time Essence Festival attendee, I can say that my experience was all of the above. While at the festival, I had the opportunity to introduce my brand Relay Collective/LumiBloom to several festival goers, as well as, present at a private party that was sponsored by us. The entire weekend was insightful and exciting at every turn! Here is a glimpse of a few highlights from my trip.

Wouldn’t you agree that one of the best things about the summer are weekend festivals?! Whether you’re a foodie, an art lover, a wine connoisseur, or a music buff – there is a festival event up your alley. Just this past weekend, Relay Collective/LumiBloom hit the road to attend the Essence Festival in New Orleans. Among the crowd were many stylish fashionistas who dressed the part for the many activities and private parties taking place throughout the weekend. Although other festivals that take place throughout the summer have different themes and dress codes, dressing with fun, casual flair is a must! Think bold brights, pops of prints and cool accessories.
