What a thrill it was to attend the DKoye product launch, where I met the award-winning stylist Daniel Koye. At the sleek Troy Liquor Bar, this event was a huge success! Below, a photo by Teddy Adolphe & Dea Jenkins of me at the event.
Daniel Koye is a charismatic stylist and wig creator. His superior work earned him some plum jobs styling for television shows such as Law and Order, and Royal Pains. Stars who locks or wigs he has crafted include Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Williams , Blair Underwood, and Carol Burnett.
His work has been featured by stars on Broadway, too, including such hits as the Book of Mormom, Hair, and the Jersey Boys. He is deeply committed to theatre and in his search for effective formulas for his highly technical work, he teamed with a scientist to develop proprietary formulas. Thus was the beginning of his hair styling products that bear the name DKoye. My photo:
I received samples of The Elixir , which reduces Frizz by sealing the cuticle. Just in time for summer styling! I also received The Curl, which defines curls with hydrating argan oils, adding bounce and shine. I can't wait to try both and will follow-up the results in a future post.
At the event, Daniel Koye was joined by Julie Chen and Daniel Koninsky, both co-founders of Heaven and Hell Makeup. Here is a photo of them together that I took and edited.
A word about Daniel Koninsky, okay a few... Daniel is one of New York's top makeup designers and artists, with 15 years of experience, and a growing number of high-profile clients. With such a distinguished background , I am sure his ( and Julie Chen's) new line of make-up brushes will be successful.
I took this shot of Daniel Koninsky at the DKoye product launch.
Hosted by AichG, this launch party was great fun. Cocktails ( yum!) by Premis, and amazing dance music was provided. What a great night, a perfect setting, and talented hosts and attendees. Thanks to AichG for inviting me!
