Indique Presents...Curlfriends Beauty Extravaganza

I had the pleasure of co-hosting the Curlfriends Beauty Extravaganza with Socialite Kiwithebeauty at the posh Indique Salon at 312 N Highland Avenue NE in Atlanta, GA last thursday! The event was an intimate mixer for Curlfriends to discuss hair extensions. Kiwithebeauty and I decided to get clip-in extensions for the event. We were given the Bounce Organic Curl which blended perfectly with our hair. My hair was in my signature three strand twist out and blended perfectly with the clip-in extensions.

I think there is a huge misconception in the natural hair community that we cannot wear weaves or that we hate our hair if we do. Let me say that is the furthest thing from the truth. For me, personally, the extensions gave me added volume and length that we as naturals sometimes desire. I had recently added new color  and the extensions gave me a beautiful ombre that I typically wear as my color grows out. Also, the hair itself felt and looked amazing (as you can see in the pictures). It doesn't have that cheap, plastic look that you often see with curly hair extensions.

The clip-ins literally took less than ten minutes to install. The clips did not pull my hair and they were not tight. I honestly didn't know they were in after wearing them for a few minutes. I absolutely loved speaking with the owner, Ericka Dotson. Her story and how she began is simply amazing. I think it is awesome when you have a passion for something and you're not afraid to leave your corporate job to make it a reality!

Yes, I'm wearing extensions!!

 The concept of the boutique itself is also amazing. You can walk in & literally learn about all the different selections they offer and purchase it there. No more hoping, guessing, or waiting to see if the hair you purchased online from some company you've never heard of or seen in person. You can touch the hair, talk with the staff, and also get recommendations on salons who they partner with to get the hair installed! Awesome, I know!

Indique also has these cool Hair ID cards! These cool cards help you with different styling options for your hair types!

    You had so much fun and we are enjoying your post.

  3. There are additional abHair, that is extremely well-liked, that’s out there in 2 varieties – specifically traditional non-Remy, and tangle-free non-Remy. Traditional non-Remy is the lowest priced human hair. The cuticles are stiff, however in several directions, therefore the hair will become tangled. Tangle-free non-Remy is obtained by shaving off either the cuticles, or the ends of the hair. Friction is reduced by inquiring this method of manufacturing the tangle-free extension.
