Beauty Bash!

The 3rd Annual DHC Beauty Bash saw Chicago’s beauty community turn out in full force for not only an elegant evening but also for a great cause! Sophisticate’s Black Hair attended the chic gala in which a portion of all proceeds benefited the anti-bullying organization Beauty Against Bullying. The event, created and presented by Darker Horse Creative (DHC) also honored several fashion and beauty industry icons including Dr. Ali N. Syed, Master Chemist and President/CEO of Avlon Industries. Here, we’re sharing some of our favorite snapshots from the event…


Enjoying the evening are (left to right): Dr. Ali N. Syed, President/CEO Avlon Industries; Bonnie L. Krueger, Publishing Editorial Services Director Sophisticate’s Black Hair;  and Ned Washington, Jr. Director of Sales Avlon Industries.
