CHICAGO, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- As the face of Luster's Pink® Brand Smooth Touch®, Grammy®-winning singer-songwriter and actress LeToya Luckett will take Chicago by storm Thursday, Dec. 16, helping style-conscious women achieve "superstar status" with hot holiday hair looks. Luckett, a platinum-selling solo artist and former member of the legendary group Destiny's Child, frequently finds herself in photographers' spotlight thanks to her fierce fashion sense and style.
On Dec. 16, the Houston native and Luster's International Design Team Artistic Director Arlisha Sims—along with two models—will preview 2010's hottest holiday hair styles. They'll offer tips on how the Smooth Touch® product line—created by Chicago's own Luster Products for younger, style-conscious women with an urban, hip-hop flair—can help them create fabulous, head-turning holiday styles. Whether young women are heading out to a black-tie event, stepping out to a casual holiday party, or just hanging out with friends, Smooth Touch® offers versatile products designed for a range of hair types and textures, from relaxed to natural to wavy and curly.
"Just like every young woman, I love getting all glam for the Holidays," said Luckett, a fashionista who with her mother owns the trend-setting Lady L Boutique in Houston. "And with my hectic recording and filming schedule, I really need products that not only hook my hair up, but keep it healthy and well-conditioned. We all need help in making sure our hairstyles are always tight—especially during the Holidays—and Smooth Touch® products make it happen!"
Luckett and Luster Products realize that, especially during the Holiday season, being beautiful is about more than just outward looks. It's about sharing oneself with others while spreading holiday cheer. On the evening of Dec. 16, Luckett will host "A Smooth Touch® Holiday Affair & Toy Drive," a 10 p.m.-2:00 a.m. event at The Shrine (2109 S. Wabash) where attendees are encouraged to bring new toys for patients at LaRabida Children's Hospital, which treats youngsters with chronic illness and/or developmental disabilities. Everyone who brings a new, unwrapped toy to "A Smooth Touch® Holiday Affair & Toy Drive" at The Shrine will receive free admission to the party.
