Red Leopard X Dorothee Schumacher

May 4, 2017

How ridiculously cool was this event with Red Leopard at Dorothea Schumacher?

This is what I kept asking myself, all the way home. These ladies KNOW what they are talking about and, dare I say it, make your life better by departing with that knowledge.

By the time I left this WIN event I felt like my life would take a different and better trajectory!

Red Leopard tested colours against my skin tone; showing the ones that made me look sickly and which ones made me look tremendous. Useful information eh?! The difference was severe and certain, complete with ooohs and ahhhs from the surrounding ladies.

This event was just a sample of their expertise but I will be availing myself of their services, ASAP. The phrase “money well spent”‘ springs to mind.

Aside from the insights, the evening was really fun. I made three new friends and a bundle of acquaintances. My heart was lifted, as it always is with Cecilia’s events. I met ladies I hadn’t seen for a while and caught up with others. I had a few glasses of bubbly, the canapés were seriously sumptuous AND we got goodie bags.

I am so outrageously glad I went!

  • ✨ @EmmaDabiri might be one of the most interesting Irish people we know. This interview is about her recent book 'Don't touch my hair' and it is well worth reading! Hope you are all looking forward to the members event on March 4th for #IWD2019 when Emma will join us and talk about her story.
📰
It's a sweltering afternoon and on a quiet London side street, outside an impossibly chic bakery (it's where Meghan and Harry had their wedding cake made), academic, author and former-model Emma Dabiri is taking a well-earned break from working on the final manuscript for her forthcoming book: Don't Touch My Hair.
Before we meet I half considered this a slightly redundant admonition for polite society - why would anyone, bar someone with latent Harvey Weinstein tendencies, touch a woman's hair unbidden? - but, in person, you can see where the temptation might arise. In this most genteel of settings, Emma's hair is an event, a happening, a lustrously-beautiful nimbus that frames her fine features. Curiosity and generations of cultural racism seem to spur the urge to pet it, stroke it. I heroically resist, but others are not so strong.
📰
"A few weeks ago a woman reached out to touch my hair on the tube and as she put out her hand she said 'wait… you don't like that, do you?' It was as though some dim memory of editorials she'd read somewhere, came bursting through; she remembered and held herself back a bit.
📰
Growing up in Dublin, it happened all the time. It was constant. Often kids would just say "oh my God, look at her hair, it's mad" and come right over and have a feel and a chat", she recalls. "It felt strange and objectifying. I found it strange because I wouldn't even touch someone's dog without asking them. I never questioned all of the treatments (that are used to 'relax' black hair) but they weren't always available to me because it's difficult to get those products in Ireland. My mum would work in Liverpool or Manchester, and there you could get a curly perm, which is sort of like defined curls, rather than afro hair.
