Hot 97 on-air radio personality Angie Martinez is moving beyond the airwaves to give listeners a chance to learn about and utilize hair and beauty tips.
The New York-based DJ, along with Covergirl® Queen Collection, Akademiks and Hot 97, will present the first annual Angie Martinez Hair Show & Beauty Expo on Nov. 24 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
The event will feature top beauty experts, stylists, makeup artists and industry insiders who will offer tips on what products work best for their hair, complexion and lifestyle.
Fabolous, Trey Songz and The Dream will also perform during the expo.
For Martinez, the hair show and expo is “the perfect opportunity for my listeners to meet industry insiders and learn a bit about beauty; and of course have fun with the artists they listen to everyday!”
“I am excited to have the opportunity to bring an event of this caliber to New York City,” she stated.
The hair show and beauty expo will kick off with a Q&A panel led by influential Über stylists and beauty icons who will offer advice and wisdom on hair and beauty.
Hair demonstrations with celebrity participants will follow as the best-known and culturally relevant beauty salons and barbershops in the tri-state area compete against each other.
Celebrities scheduled to appear at the all day event include actress Meagan Good and recording artists Missy Elliot, Keyshia Cole, Eve, Ashanti, and Nina Sky.
Make-up artists Misa Hylton, JJ and Rafael, as well as renowned beauty, hair and lifestyle editor Adrienne Moore of Hype Hair Magazine will also be on hand.
In addition to the Q&A panels and hair competitions, the hair show and expo will feature giveaways and special performances by Fabolous, Trey Songz and The Dream.
