|Alecia Tucker answers the ladies most pressing hair questions.|
To celebrate the launch of the new Coconut Shea collection, EDEN BodyWorks has hosted a series of events entitled “Style with EDEN.” Infused with pure coconut oil and shea butter, the Coconut Shea product line, promises to change the way you manage your hair. I had the pleasure of attending the event along with many other style mavens in the Chicago area. The event was held at the hip, south loop venue, City Point Loft. A major highlight of the evening was the panel discussion, a fusion if you will, of hair and fashion.
The panelist included Chicago favorites: Aramide “Dee Dee” Esubi of The Sassy Peach, Alecia Tucker aka “Afros N’ Baby Hair” of Thrive Beauty Bar (Salon) and Autumn Merritt of Sir and Madame Boutique with hair and clothing models Tanikia Thompson of Nikki in the City and Rachel Odem of Rachel O. Beauty. I was so inspired by the passion with the panelist shared their wisdom. Alecia Tucker gave us a breakdown of how she used each product to style models’ hair. Armed with new knowledge, I can’t wait to share my own experience and results of the new product line with you.
