Marjani Beauty's Grand Opening Recap!
Posted on 14 December 2018
On December 8th, 2018 we held our launch party for our very first brick and mortar store. Located in Dupont Circle, the Marjani Beauty store is the first of its kind in Washington, DC. Our new location can be described as a Sephora like beauty hub for brown girls who enjoy all things makeup, skincare and hair. We created a space and broke the mold of beautiful for just for you! Here's what happened on opening day.
We welcomed over 200 guests at the grand opening and we could not be more appreciative of every single person who came to support. Guests were able to try the products we sell at our online store and purchase on the spot. Think, the Perfect Match Tour but with a home base! We were so happy to see our customers walk away with many of their favorite brands and new brands they have always wanted to try.
Beauty Expert and Makeup Artist, AJ Crimson, not only made an appearance but treated guests to a mini makeover. AJ was able to share best practices for applying makeup and the benefits of using the AJ Crimson products. Guests even had the opportunity to try out the newly debuted AJ Crimson Artist Kit in store! We appreciate AJ for coming by and making the launch even more special.
Because beauty is much more than just makeup we also had natural hair expert, Q of On the Runnn, stop by and perform live natural hair styling demos. Beauty Calls DC was there to give guests skincare consultations as well. Makeup, hair and skin care... our guests left out in style, looking like rockstars and beauty queens!
Guests also enjoyed delicious bites by CAVA and refreshments provided by Babe Drink. The DJ kept the party pumping and everyone could not get enough of our "Flexin' in My Melanin' Wall!" Really, you have to come and check out the picture perfect wall! Press and media also stopped by to learn more about our store.
Everything went off without a hitch! We could not have done it without some very special people. Thank you to our sponsors and partners, CAVA, Babe Drinks, Erin Martin Photography, Bougie Balloons, DC Sweet Potato, DC Beauty Calls, DJ Domo, and JSimms Events for making this experience magical.
We would love to have you shop with us in-store! If you’re in the DC area, we’re located at 1365 Connecticut Ave in DuPont Circle. Our "play" hours are Monday through Friday from 10 am to 8 pm and Weekends from 11 am to 8 pm. We can't wait to help you find your favorite brown girl approved beauty products in a space made with YOU in mind. See you there!
