Tela Design Studio’s BLOW OUT!: The 411 on Hair Straightening Products with a Special BravoTV Millionaire Matchmaker Model!

By: Anne M. Raso

We were lucky enough to score an invite to the Tela Design Studio’s BLOW OUT! Breakfast at the Tela Studio in Manhattan’s famous Meatpacking District. Philip Pelusi, CEO and founder of Tela Beauty Organics (and, of course, the Tela Design Studio) demonstrated BLOW OUT!, the world's first 85% USDA Certified Organic Keratin smoothing treatment. Phillip, a 46-year veteran of the hair salon business, tells us, “BLOW OUT! contains no formaldehyde, no aldehydes, no harsh chemicals, no irritating fumes or odors, and is sulfate and paraben-free with an allergen-free fragrance.” He adds that the product would have been 100 percent organic if it was not for the preserver that had to be added to give the product a good shelf life.

Philip provided members of the press master advise on how to optimize shine, health and manageability for all curly, frizzy & uniquely textured hair types. Interestingly enough, Philip and his team’s model for the event was Stacey Kessler of Ridgewood, NJ, who was on a recent episode of Bravo's The Millionaire Matchmaker.
Poor Stacey got lambasted by Patti Stanger for showing her date footage of her successful modeling career and all we have to say about that is hey, we do not think that Patti would yell at a male client for showing off his house or car collection on a date! Anyways, Stacey’s curly black locks were instantly tamed with BLOW OUT! -- even before any of Philip’s talented team took to blow-drying her hair. Stacey had actually put BLOW OUT! on the left side of her hair a day or two previously, let it dry naturally, and came in with a half curly, half straight head of hair. We media folks were all impressed, needless to say!
Philip also talked about the other products in the Tela Beauty Organics line and recommended the Tela Balance Organic Shampoo and Conditioner as the two everyday basics for people with long hair to prevent split ends and keep hair with any degree of curliness or coarseness sleek and smooth. Tela Beauty Organics Healer Hair Repair contains shea butter and argan oil (among other natural ingredients) that provide strengthening and protection from color fade. Tela Beauty Organics Reduce Sensational Styling Smoother actually cuts down on drying time and locks in moisture—all while providing a smooth texture. All the products have a lovely lavender and citrus scent that linger and that we find, actually help us relax. For more info, go to; products can be purchased there and well at Nordstrom’s stores and
