As you may know if you read my blog or follow my Facebook page, last month I had an awesome trip to Richmond, VA. I’d never been there, so it was great to spend some time in a new city. I got to spend some time with the awesome folks at Imago, which is a curly hair specific salon that has been carrying Jessicurl for a few years.
Mary Jo is VERY well known in the curly world and her appointment book is filled months in advance. (For good reason. :) I was in desperate need of a hair cut so I was super stoked that I was able to get a cut by her during my visit. What I wasn’t anticipating was that I’d also get to get my color done while I was there too!
Jessica is another curly redhead Jess that works at Imago and she and I became fast friends. She did the color, MJ did the cut and I think the result turned out awesome. :) My hair felt much bouncier after and much healthier than it did before. Clearly I had let it go too long in between trims.
This is me and Jess, after she and MJ had worked their magic on me. :-)
Saturday of that weekend was the Return of the Curls event put on by Keenya Kelly. I had never met Keenya but I could tell from our phone calls prior to my trip that we’d become QUICK friends. :) She’s just a sparkle, as my mom would say. :-) Tons and tons and TONS of curlies showed up for this all-day event, as you can tell from my picture below.
If it’s one thing I love, it’s getting out and meeting Jessicurl fans. :) I love hearing your hair stories and seeing your hair and helping you get the results you want from Jessicurl products. I got to meet a lot of curlies that day and had a great time.
The grand finale of the day was the fashion show. Keenya asked me if I’d be in it and since I’m SOOOO painfully shy, I agreed. :) (In case you couldn’t tell, I was being super sarcastic there.)
It was SO fun being in the fashion show! :) As you can see by the pictures below, I didn’t chicken out and get shy at the last minute. :)

Up next… Canada, then… ATLANTA!
