What do you get when you mix a group of influencers, hair enthusiasts, unforgettable food, and a beautiful location? The official launch of Hair Rules on the West Coast is the correct answer. That’s right, it’s official—the new Hair Rules Studio LA is in full swing and the celebration of its opening was truly one to remember. The fusion of Dickey and his magnetic presence, warm Cali vibes, and incredible catering by chef Alisa Reynolds, owner of Mid-City’s ‘My Two Cents’ restaurant, made for a dazzling event.
Hair Rules dear friend and client, Debra Lee, a philanthropist and the former Chairman & CEO of BET Networks, graciously hosted the launch and presented the main event of the night: a panel discussion led by none other than the multi-talented (and endlessly witty) Amanda Seales. Panelists included Tai Beauchamp, a style influencer, Auset Eyowaku, a spirit guide, Jihan Thompson, the co-founder and sponsor of Swivel Beauty, and our very own Texture Guru, Dickey. Combined with Amanda’s sharp intellect and humor, the discussion was a medley of authentic connection and inspirational dialogue.
The beauty of the moment was unparalleled. Topics ranged from the newly implemented Crown Act to the existing challenges of finding stylists who understand and can manage any textures. The most powerful takeaway of the night was one that resonated with us to the core and reaffirmed the foundation of why Hair Rules was founded: regardless of the choices made when it comes to our own hair, we embrace and celebrate all textures across the hair spectrum. No judgements welcome.
The event was more than a launch, a party, or a discussion. At its very core, it was a reflection of our Hair Rules culture and outlook. Dickey was able to share what the V.I.P. experience really means at the LA studio and how it’s set apart from the rest. He conveyed to existing clients and newcomers alike that a visit to the LA studio will go beyond typical salon services to delve into extensive education related to each individual’s texture through in-depth, one-on-one consultations. Every client experience will be uniquely catered not only to what they want, but to what their hair needs. One thing that will never change, no matter which coast Hair Rules hosts you on, we will always support each and every client so she (or he!) walks away feeling love for their beautiful, natural texture.
