Last week I was invited to the opening of the fabulous new Salon and Spa by Erwin Gomez. I had just gotten my hair done earlier on in the day, so what better way to showcase it than at one of the area’s top Salon. Anyways, leave it to Erwin and his team to throw a bash! Over 400 notable Washingtonians joined talented celebrity make up artist Erwin Gomez for the dazzling launch of his latest beauty lounge, Karma by Erwin Gomez (1104 24th Street, N.W). Gomez opened the doors of his new beauty-destination in the heart of the District’s posh West End neighborhood last week. Popular for providing DC with a cosmetic hotspot for A-listers and prominent figures, Gomez has styled celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Jennifer Garner, Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Garth Brooks, Keyshia Cole and Maria Shriver among others.
The event featured high profile local attendees such as Top Chef’s Spike Mendelsohn, Ambassador of Sri Lanka Jaliya Wickramasuriya, TV personality Paul Wharton, NBC 4’s Angie Goff & Richard Jordan, ABC 7’s Pamela Brown, Natasha Barrett, Scott Thuman and Jummy Olabanji, Washingtonian’s Kate Bennett, WPGC’s Sunni and The City, DMI CEO Sunni Bajaj, developers Mark & Elise Lefkowitz, Lanmark Technology Inc.’s Lani Hay, Urban Adventures Companies David von Storch, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki, Moet Hennessy USA’s Michael Pelissier and Washington Wholesale’s David Kim among others joined Gomez and his Karma partners Vinoda Basnayake, Brook Rose, Kunal Shah and Charlie Paret to commemorate their new beauty locale.
