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.
