Allure’s annual Best of Beauty Awards is hosting its first series of virtual events this year, both free and ticketed.
The Allure editor-hosted event series launches today, with a roundtable discussion about the culture of Black hair with actress and first-time Best of Beauty Award winner Taraji P. Henson, who starred in "Hustle and Flow" and "The Division."
“Thanks to our new friend and constant companion Zoom, this year we have the ability to invite beauty lovers from every corner of the world to two weeks' worth of Best of Beauty celebrations,” reads a post from Allure editors.
“These get-togethers will give you access to some of the most sought-after celebrities, makeup artists, hairstylists and cosmetic medical professionals in the beauty industry, not to mention the Allure editors you look to for expert advice every day.”
The six-part series continues throughout the month with makeup artist Hung Vanngo, a live class with Pricilla Ono, and a K-Beauty roundtable discussion highlighting 2020 Best of Beauty Award winners from Korea.
Proceeds from the $10 tickets will support organizations selected by participating talent, including the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, Huong Duong Home and the Clara Lionel Foundation.
Unilever will present two free events: a skin consultation session and Q&A with dermatologist Shari Marchbein, and a beauty demo with hair stylists Justine Marjan and Lacy Redway.
