For many femmes, particularly among the chicest of Latinas, hair stylist and image consultant Pedro Abasolo is the last word in high-style beauty. Just ask those among his biggest clients and BFFs that gathered at Hotel ZaZa for his annual thank you bash for devoted followers.
More than 200 men and women joined the second annual invitation-only festivities, which Abasolo dedicated to the "strong and fearless women" who engage his talents at Ovations Hair Studio & Spa, where he is owner and majordomo.
Guests followed the red carpet into the hotel ballroom where the drink of the night was a Hennessy premium cocktail dubbed El Pedro.
The host lined up three fashion designers for the catwalk presentation. Persian born, U.S.-based Azhand Shokohi presented her collection for the first time in Texas and loved the party. "What an amazing night," she noted on Twitter. "I was so honored to be part of Pedro Abasolo's fabulous Redcarpet Hair Fashion Show in the amazing ZaZa hotel."
The VIP crowd included event sponsors Silvia Mintz and Micheline and German Newall, plus Univision's glam Michelle Galvan and Laura Sierra along with Annina Stefanelli, Lucia and Michael Cordua, Pilar de la Garza, Mariana Escamilla, Kelcy Mayell, Tessa Del Grande and Ilene Putterman.
