Kickin' It: Melanie Fiona & Ojon Beauty Event

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a beauty launch party for hair care brand Ojon. Hosted by singer/songwriter Melanie Fiona, the event was an amazing celebration of inspirational art, music and beauty. There were displays of art posted around the penthouse suite of the Standard Hotel in the East Village, complete with live art installations by VJ and MTV host Amanda Seales, and a listening session featuring Melanie Fiona's new album The MF Life. I had a blast, take a look:

So the event was hosted by Melanie Fiona with guest DJ Jasmine Solano. Both ladies looked beautiful last night.

I hung out with some of my favorite bloggers and editors. This is Yoli from Yoli's Green Living. Be sure to check out her site, it's all about green eco-friendly lifestyle.

The view from the top of The Standard Hotel  at sunset was breathtaking.

MTV host Amanda Seales did a live art installation at the event, which was beautiful.

Melanie rocked out in a leopard printed silk top and red tailored shorts. Absolutely loved her necklace too!

Every guest went home with a bottle of Ojon's newest formula - their Rare Blend Oil from the Hair Therapy collection. Can't wait to try this out!

All in all it was an awesome event! Special shoutout to my amazing photographer Shade Laurie of ShadedBlaque Photography.
