Dozens of lucky fans had the chance to meet and greet with daytime hosts of the Emmy® nominated talk show The Real.

During the Essence Festival in New Orleans this past weekend, which attracted over 40,000 attendees, The Real co-hosts Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai, minus Tamera Mowry-Housely who fell ill prior to the event, met with fans at Shea Moisture’s pop-up shop at Spa Atlantis on Saturday (July 2).

Discussing all things beauty, including their favorite Shea Moisture products (their weightless foundation that still provides coverage but leaves way for beautiful, natural freckles—Bailon’s and Mai’s personal fave), the ladies took pictures and kicked back with fans while sampling different products from the natural hair beauty giant.


The Shea Moisture takeover also offered hair consultations, complimentary cocktails and samples off the all-natural, sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.

The day before the Meet-and-Greet on Friday (July 1), the ladies taped a live show of the high-rated FOX talk show on the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience stage. The NOLA show will air this fall when The Real returns for its third season.
