EBONY’s Power 100 Gala is by far the biggest event for the brand, which is exactly why we welcomed the lovely ladies of Bonnti Beauty Concierge to add a little glam to the evening.
Bonnti is a luxury, on-demand beauty service that caters specifically to women of color, previously working with figures like Symone Sanders and Yvonne Orji. This time around, the squad dolled up several EBONY team members for the unforgettable night, providing both hair and make-up services for the event.
From natural tresses to blond extensions to bountiful and bouncy curls, Bonnti stylists provided A1 service with a smile. They also provide gorgeous red robes and champagne for clients looking for a true VIP experience. Make-up looks varied from subtly seductive to full-on glamourous, as the MUA Latoya De’Shaun specializes in matching brown skin tones with the perfect foundation.
Check out the stunning stylists and MUAs who had us sittin’ pretty at the EBONY Power 100 gala.
