Fans lined up Saturday, March 4 to catch a glimpse of Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kenya Moore, getting real about hair.
Crowds swarmed a local Sally Beauty to check out the Bravoleb promoting her haircare line — and blogger, SlickTalk4Real spilled the tea about the reality/retail event.
The writer dished that a Kenya sighting is rare in her neck of the woods — despite the fact that Moore Manor is said to boast an Atlanta zip code.
“I had heard via Instagram that Kenya was going to be making an appearance at a Sally Beauty in Atlanta, so this was going to be my first stop of the day. I made this a priority because here in Atlanta, you tend to see the housewives quite a bit and I’ve mixed and mingled a lot with all the girls except Kenya!!! It’s rare to see a Moore sighting here. I don’t care what y’all say about a “Moore Manor”, this lady don’t live here!”
The writer explained that she beat Kenya to the store, and was was able to see the shop in full prep mode.
“So I took my nosey ass up there and found the store being “twirled-out”. Lot’s of purple…Lots of sheer white curtains being draped around. Kenya also laid out the red carpet and had a huge image of her on the backdrop.”
Kenya is described as polite, gracious, and warm as sunshine.
“Kenya was sooooo nice and mannerly to the store associates. It’s like she brought the damn Sun in with her. She was polite and gracious to everyone. The crowd grew pretty quickly, as the customers lined up to Meet Kenya and to see the Products.”
“I am so used to her talking mess on RHOA, that I was really taken aback by how kind and intelligent she was.”
Kenya, a “natural born hustler,” wowed the crowd with her haircare skills.
“She really did a great job of educating the crowd on the products and giving them basic do’s and don’ts for their hair. Kenya demonstrated the product on her own hair, which looked flawless by the way.”
Kenya injected some humor into the mix, offering anyone in the crowd a shot at a “weave check.”
“At that point she offered the crowd the chance to do a “weave-check” to show the haters that it was all hers. Tons of people took her up on her offer. Ain’t that weird? Now being the RHOA junkie that I am, all I could think about when they were grabbing at her hair was when Porsha yanked her ass to the floor.”
Kenya wrapped the meet-and-greet by offering photos with any product purchase. The writer left the store beyond impressed.
“Kenya was sooooo good at talking to this crowd and selling them on her hair care products!!!! She obviously put a lot of work in the project. Hell! I was about to buy a bottle and my bald-headed ass ain’t got a lick of hair.”
Kenya gave Atlanta locals a peek at a live retail twirl — and did not disappoint!
