The 25th annual Essence Festival drew bosses of all kinds, but the Maui Moisture cocktail party at the Ace Hotel in New Orleans brought out the best and brightest in the beauty world.

Beauty gurus at the top of their games attended the cocktail party to celebrate a brand they know and love. Boasting a diverse range of products for every type of curl out there, Maui Moisture received nothing but high praises.

Monica Stevens, hair specialist known for her platform Mo Knows Hair, showcased the versatility of the products as she created a gorgeous updo using the brand’s coconut oil mist and curl smoothie.

ESSENCE had a chance to chat with Rene Daniella of @ownbyfemme, Constance Cash of @teamnatural, and Monica Stevens of @moknowshair about all things hair and their favorite products from the line.
