As a black fashion and travel blogger I am exposed to the beauty industry all the time. Even with the emphasize on Black women and their beauty in recent years, I have seen the development and release of many products and services who cater to black women. BUT TresseNoire has set the bar.
NYFW is all about beauty and fashion. My plans of wearing beautiful fashion were totally set but the beauty part was questionable. I wanted a new look, a fresh vibe and new confidence. I had the vision but wasn’t too sure about the execution.
TresseNoire was the answer. TresseNoire is an app with a catalogue of vetted hairstylists and makeup artists who specialize in black beauty. You can select your hairstyle or makeup look, send it through the app and a hairstylist or makeup artist then comes to your home or location to provide the service. Simple.
While I was in New York for NYFW, TresseNoire was kind enough to send me a hairstylist to give me a makeover just in time for NYFW. The experience was so phenomenal I had to share it with you all.
Let’s start from the beginning.
I was in my apartment and the front desk called me down because my TressesNoire stylist has arrived. I walked into the lobby, turned the corner and was greeted by a stunning beauty with a smile, dressed in a black suit. I was stunned. I thought this was going to be a jeans type of thing. But Jasmine showed up in a suit. LONG STARE. I was impressed.
We scurried up to my suite and the process began. I showed Jasmine her workstation and she set up. I pulled out my picture of the hairstyle I wanted but she already had a copy. ANOTHER LONG STARE. Impressed. I expressed my concerns about the hairstyle I wanted to get and she calmed me down. I literally trusted Jasmine in the span of 10 minutes. She then took the lead and I relaxed.
Within the next hour, I had a new look. I couldn’t even believe it was me. It truly was a makeover. Jasmine exceeded my expectations. TresseNoire exceeded my expectations. First of all it was a simple process, Jasmine did a beautiful job. She earned my trust. Second, I looked beautiful. The curls were soft and bouncy. Finally, would I do this again, yes! I visit NYC all the time and love to get glam. With this simple process, I can get glam faster and without any hassle. Here is a picture of me and Jasmine right after she completed my hair followed by the final look.
Thank you TresseNoire for adopting such a high standard of excellence. Head to my Instagram to see a video of transformation. In the meantime here is the final look.
Tell them I sent you.
