Last Sunday I had the pleasure of attending IBSNY for my first time with my girlfriend Nikki aka my bestie aka my amazing hair stylist (love you girl!!!). If I could sum up this show in three words it would be hair extensions, glitter, and pink. This show was a hair dresser and makeup-artist’s dream…and it was PACKED to prove it! The main part of the show was filled with all types of vendors selling scissors, t-shirts, hair accessories galore, jewelry, blow dryers…and yes indeed makeup! You couldn’t even get to the NYX booth it was soooo flooded with ladies trying to get their hands on the bright colors that will be the hottest trends for spring and summer. I made a small purchase at Stila, but when I got home I only wished I had gotten more from them haha, this is a newer brand to me and I LOVE them already. Received amazing samples and a pretty sweet tote from Moraccan oil (another booth that was mobbed ha). And my girls at Fake Bake were holding it down with actual applications of their sunless tanning products (future review post coming!).
There were a ton of hair classes going on, a handful of business ones, and a few makeup demonstrations. I sat in on Eve Pearl doing her High Definition makeup class, also sat in on Noreen Young talk about the upcoming spring trends… “think Peacock Eye” she said haha. Both ladies were a pleasure to watch and sooo funny.

There was so much to see and do that I can NOT wait to go next year. I will be getting a room in Nyc for the night and preparing to get there super early so I’m able to take more pictures and be one step in front of the mob!
