On May 6th, Sleekhair.com & Alyssa from Living In Style kicked off Mama's month with a smashing Spring Fling Pop Up Marketplace to benefit Omics Live, a local nonprofit that helps local high school and college students secure internships and careers in beauty and fashion. The shopping party featured 20 local vendors as well as chic blogger closets from So Cal's top influencers @alyssalynndenny, @looksforlovelies, @courtneerodgers, @feastfashionfaves and @jenhayden
While the OC weather took an unexpected gloomy turn, the light showers and chilly breeze didn't deter 200 attendees from coming to shop, get glammed, mingle and indulge in the mouth-watering street food presented by Chubbee Monkee, a popular Asian American Fusion food truck.
We were amazed at the number of early bird shoppers who lined up before the festivities began to redeem their complimentary flower crowns and Mother's Day gift bags. More than 100 prepaid VIP Totes were sold out and more were made the day of to appease walk-in visitors who caught a glimpse of the event on social media and just had to swing by.

Toni & Guy Academy of Orange County brought a kick ass crew of students who rocked the complimentary glam suite NONSTOP which included braids, styling and makeup stations. Attendees scored with a full range of top-notch pampering services.
Bright DIY florals and butterflies adorned selfie walls handmade with love by our COO, Joan Ngo (our in-house DIY event specialist).
C & M Cakes generously passed out their yummy, bliss-filled treats embellished with spring motifs and ethereal messages of love, wish, dream and joy.
Bottomless bottles of organic juice kept everyone hydrated and energized thanks to Suja's ahhmazing sponsorship!
Sleekhair's showroom was bustling with shoppers, content makers and beauty enthusiasts of all stripes taking advantage of the deep discounts on cult faves and exploring new product launches at special flash deals.
One of the newest brands to hit the US Market, Doctor's Lab and May New York delivered an insightful presentation on the latest innovations in Kbeauty including a premium Platinum Sheet Mask and Neck Patch as well as an incredible sunstick that's taking S. Korea by storm and currently the #1 selling sunscreen in the country. Definitely a summer have in your beach bag.
And as with all #sleekevents, the shopping party concluded with an epic raffle drawing made possible by countless partners in beauty and fashion. Our repeat attendees know very well that we always have an insane number of JUICY raffle prizes. For every $5 spent, Sleek shoppers received a raffle ticket and boy, did they spend. We had over $2000 in raffle prizes that included makeup, hot tools, wellness products, salon services and the grand prize being a $1000 Gift Certificate to Vivella Med Spa!
