(Philadelphia, PA) Actress, activist, author and motivational speaker Sheryl Lee Ralph introduced her new luxury hair line, DIVASTARR Luxury Virgin Hair, with partner Carla Clarkson (a.k.a. Marki Starr, "The Hair Maven") in Philadelphia this week. The catered event was held at the beautiful Parkside Ballroom in West Philadelphia and hosted by author and media personality Envy Mckee.
Clarkson and her hair artists gave live styling demonstrations and there were ample giveaways for the eager attendees. Ms. Ralph, beautifully dressed in a two-piece, figure flattering leopard number, interacted with the audience throughout the four-hour event. At one point during a demonstration Ralph joked "I am a kitchen beautician. I have an orange license!" When asked later, Clarkson added that she uses tips that Ralph recommends often especially when styling Ralph, whom Clarkson says knows what looks best on her when in front of the camera.
Ralph addressed the audience about taking advantage of wholesale pricing for quality merchandise, like the luxury hair line, as well as taking advantage of entrepreneurship opportunities. When asked to elaborate on what she called the three luxuries, she responded "there are three luxuries in life: being able to put your children through college, pay for your car, and own your home. Now that's luxury!" If women are going to buy hair, I'm giving (them) what I want for myself and treating (them) the way I would like to be treated. Diva Starr - Divinely Inspired, Victoriously Awesome!"
Ralph also had products available for purchase from her organization, The Diva Foundation, which raises AIDS awareness around the globe. Click here to find out more about the foundation and items for sale. To find out more about the DIVASTARR brand and purchase products, click here.
