Houston Image Expo 2012 Part 2

This is the 2nd installment of my experience at the Houston Image Expo 2012.   To see part one click here.  I mentioned that the majority of this trade show was focussed on hair.  There were numerous vendors selling a variety of products from equipment and tools, to hair care, to extensions.

The workers at Dream Catchers have really cool hair. Above is a guy with a huge mohawk.  Below I’m with a worker who has really cool pink hair. We just had to take a pic together. 🙂

Above is a lady getting a demo with the Dream Catcher Extensions.

This is Cinderella Hair above and Amika below.

Amika’s set up was so pretty and colorful. I purchased a set of Argon Oil products that I’m really pleased with so far.

I’m standing with Rosie Herman, the creator of the One Minute Manicure.  Rosie, her husband, and daughter were so very friendly.  They provided demos in their booth. I can honestly say that my hands did feel better. I’ll provide a more in depth review of the One Minute Manicure in another post.

I attended the 5 time Emmy Award winner Eve Pearl’s make up class during the afternoon. My first experience with Eve Pearl was a few weeks before at IMATS LA.  I enjoyed her class so much that I wanted to make sure that I saw her again at the Houston Image Expo. The most amazing part of my day was talking to Eve Pearl. I initially met her the 2nd day of  IMATS LA.  And guess what?  She remembered me!! She allowed me to take pictures with one of her 5 Emmys.  OMG! I still get overjoyed thinking about it. 🙂 While spending time at the Eve Pearl Booth, I was also able to finally meet,  in real life, some make up artists that I’m friends with on Facebook and Twitter.From Left to right on the back row: NY Make Up Artist Aina,  San Antonio Make Up Artist Liz, Houston Make Up Artist Jamali, Oklahoma Makeup Artist Gwen. Middle row left to right: San Antonio Make Up Artist K Hudson,  Houston Make Up Artist Angel, Houston Make Up Artist Faith and me in the front.

  It was so nice to see these two ladies again.

Here is a picture of me with Oklahoma Make Up Artist Gwen Pettie-Green.  We first met at the Make Up Forever Pro Road Show in Austin last year.

This is a picture of  me with Houston Make Up Artist Angel Fields.  I first met Angel in 2010 at the Jones Magazine sponsored event A Night with Sam Fine here in Houston. We interact regularly through social media but hadn’t seen each other face to face in almost 2 yrs.

Stay tuned to my conclusion of this series of my experience at the Houston Image Expo. It ended with a Bang!! 🙂
