#sleeksweetshop--A Whirlwind of Sweets and Shopping for a Cause
RECAP VIDEO -- PRESS PLAY BELOW!
In honor of National Dessert Day (October 14th), we're doing a throwback to Sleek's most memorable event of the year held in August.
Just when you think #sleekevents couldn’t get any sweeter, think again. Sleekhair’s Museum of Ice Cream-inspired Marketplace showered 350 attendees with countless treats, vendors and activities for 3 full hours on Saturday, August 19th--all to benefit the OC Prom Project, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping disadvantaged teens attend Prom with confidence and style. Here’s a look at Sleek Sweet Shop’s whole shebang and how it left shoppers with the sugar rush of their lives.
THE SUPER SWEET SWAG
Dreamy Ice Cream Totes overflowing with almost $200 of products for just $20? Attendees jumped on this insane deal and needless to say, we sold out days before the actual event.
Thanks to these incredibly generous brand partners for making this the SWAG OF THE YEAR in our books, and also to Ivy Love Shop for designing it:
LA Splash Cosmetics, Enjoy, Iden, Note Cosmetics, Peter Lamas, Morfose, Tony Moly, Manna Kadar Cosmetics, Sigma, Sunglass.la, Schwarzkopf, Vera Mona, Goldwell, LA Girl, Mishe, Doctors Lab
Enjoy, Savvy Travelers
THE DIY DESSERT PARLOR
A fan of all things DIY, Sleekhair built a cute dessert parlor to spotlight local handmade treats that impersonated ice cream. A special shout-out to these sweet sponsors for making their clever confections 100% complimentary:
Baked con Amor
Made with Love indeed. Baked con Amor offered bright donut-inspired cupcakes and ice cream shaped cake-pops. Resisting these bubbly desserts was virtually impossible…
Front Porch Pops
Hands down the most tasty pops we’ve ever had and to this day, are still the talk of the town. Unique homemade flavors like Strawberry Basil, Vanilla Chai, and Blueberry Lime kept our taste buds in a blissful frenzy.
Little Bakery OC
Pretty pastel cupcakes in a cone that really looked like ice cream were not only delish, but super instaworthy.
Creme and Sugar OC
The legendary unicorn cafe offered a massive tray of their newly launched S’mores Bark that screamed campfires and summer camps.
Infinite wells of organic, cold-pressed juice were the perfect thirst - quencher on this sweltering day.

OC's highly rated Sushi restaurant amazed the crowd with their creative Sushi Sundaes that were all snatched up in a matter of minutes.

Haircare formulas that smell good enough to eat. Attendees were invited to sample their signature cupcake scented leave-ins, hair masks and shampoos that are in such high demand, we can’t seem to keep them in stock.

Nothing wraps up a sugar-filled shopping party like a bundle of amazing raffle prizes including Blowpro Titanium Blow Dryers ($139) and Vanity Girl Hollywood’s White Broadway ($500). For every $5 spent, attendees secured a raffle ticket. The showroom was bustling with shoppers scrambling to grab their faves and many left with handfuls of tickets in hopes of scoring big.
