Last week I was invited to the CHI headquarters for a makeover night with the Houston Latina Bloggers. I have used Farouk products for 15+yrs and just love them. The CHI flat irons and BioSilk are two of my beauty staples! With that being said, I could not pass up the opportunity to be pampered like a queen and visit the facility again (check out the behind the scenes tour here). As a mom on-the-go, it’s nice to take some time for yourself and spend an evening getting the royal treatment with some of Houston’s finest Latina bloggers.
Our evening was hosted by the CHI Lonestar college facility where we were paired with student stylists to complete our hair makeovers. My stylist Stephanie was a sweetheart and looked like a real-life mermaid with her beautiful purple locks!! I sat down for a quick consultation and we decided long loose curls would be a nice look for my long hair.
The BEFORE Look:
Before we started, we were off to the photo studio for the dreaded BEFORE pictures, sans makeup. I did have a little lip color leftover because I was coming from a day at the office. After the lovely photo shoot and a quick video , we were off to be transformed.
Stephanie started with a massaging shampoo and then a blow out using the Royal Treatment line of products. These products smell amazing! She continued to create beautiful curls and styled my hair with my usual side part. It was so nice to sit back and have someone else do the work.
I continued the experience with makeup by Eliaz . He gave me more of a glam look than I usually wear; dramatic eyes, beautiful lashes, and a natural pink lip. I felt like I was ready to walk the NYFW runway! After our looks were completed, we headed back to the studio for a final photo shoot (watch our reveal video here). Keep scrolling for the FINAL look!

Overall, it was such a fun night filled with beauty and lovely ladies. I really did feel like a supermodel. Thank you CHI and Lopez Marketing for such a great event. I look forward to keeping CHI as one of my go-to brands for haircare.
