Primarily women attendees gathered at the Hair Rules Salon in New York City for a night of hair makeovers, product giveaways, and seeing the app in action.
The I Love Your Hair app is fueled by women’s open communication through sharing their own haircuts and styles. The app allows women to browse galleries of hairstyles, all of which are submitted by real women—an effort to drive women to love their own hair.
