Check out photos from Day One of the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show. The annual hair and fashion extravaganza is taking place all weekend long at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center and featured a number of your favorite music, TV and social media stars.

James Bronner + Erika Repress + SILK

The event was officially kicked off with a press conference conducted by Show Director and SVP of Bronner Bros., James Bronner along with Show Manager, Erika Respress. It also featured the “next generation” of Bronners, who are working behind-the-scenes to ensure that the legendary show continues for generations to come.

SILK + The Bronner Clan

A highlight during the press conference included an impromptu performance by iconic R&B group—Silk.  The quintet is celebrating over 25 years in the music industry and took us to church with a soulful rendition of “The Greatest Love of All.” The group, who was discovered by Keith Sweat in the early 90s, will also be featured on the opening episode of TV One’s new season of UNSUNG on Sunday, February 18.

The Cast of To Rome For Love

Other special guests at the press conference included the lovely ladies of the new docu-series, To Rome for Love(Chef) Shay Atkins, Nakita McGraw and Mercedes Young. They are also in town hosting a viewing party for their show which airs tonight on Bravo.
