POP Style TV met few Fashion Group International Rising Star finalist in the beauty category. Curl Daddy founder, Edwin Borquez Pierrot shared with us why he started his brand: “Curl Daddy started from a process that I went through that really made me love myself. But most importantly which then transitioned into a transformation that made me love my hair. Of course 60% of what you apply on to you is absorbed into you, into your system. So that is why Curl Daddy is about vegan products, free of harsh chemicals that are great for all curly textures.”

Abby Wallach, Freddie Lieba and Pam Seidman

While mingling with all the fabulous guests, we noticed a lady holding some sort of colorful sticks. Of course this attractive packaging made us curious. Turns out, it was Abby Wallach, co-founder of Sparti Scents so she presented a new cool way to wear fragrance or a first of a kind innovation that’s portable, colorful, playful, and it also has skincare ingredients. Perfect for Gen Z generation.

When asked why did she think we need this product Ms. Wallach said :  “We need this product because it is the first fragrance in the world that you can see in color and you can take with you anywhere you go. So now that we are all back in action on the go living full lives, it’s a great part of your beauty routine and you can put it on all day long. So it’s not just your alcohol based spray. It’s a super cool portable perfume stick that you pop in your pocket. You take it everywhere you go!”
