Jen Atkin Launches OUAI Haircare Among Celebrity Friends in L.A.
Jen Atkin devotees came out in force Thursday night when the super stylist to the stars threw a soiree to celebrate her much-awaited hair care line OUAI. A slew of Kardashians — matriarch Kris and daughters Kourtney, Khloe and Kylie — plus Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Whitney Port and Nicole Richie.
The Apartment by The Line was the chic venue for the bash that saw lots of black, white, leather and fur. When Teigen walked in — resplendent in a sheer black dress with belt to accent her baby bump and a low braided ponytail — with Legend (in a bold studded moto jacket), she exclaimed, "This is a party!"

Said Atkin of her big night: "I'm excited to see all my friends. I feel like my baby's born and now everyone's coming to see it. None of my friends have actually seen the product. It's really surreal. It's been fun to see the reception of it and everybody's so excited. My friends were all really helpful in troubleshooting and deciding what works, what we liked, what felt cool. And they're all snobs. So it was good for me."
Those friends and clients — which also included Cindy Crawford, Elisha Cuthbert, celebrity stylist Monica Rose, makeup artists Fiona Stiles and Beau Nelson, and hairstylist Gregory Russell — mingled in the pristine digs, checking out her amazing-smelling products, sipping Champagne, snapping photo booth pics and nibbling delicate bites while DJ Nikki Pennie played throwback hip-hop. All in all, a fitting way for OUAI to finally hit the scene.
