The Hype Hair team celebrated cover girl Vena Excell, professionally known as Pretty Vee, at a private cocktail affair at the Culture Experience in Atlanta, Georgia.
The soiree was sponsored by The B Firm PR, Dine & Design, the Culture Experience and Belaire Luxe Rosé.
It was an emotional evening for the influencer, comedian and entrepreneur, who wowed fans with her all red cover art. She fought back the tears as she recounted her dreams of being on a Hype Hair cover as a little girl. Vena was joined by family, friends and industry execs who toasted to her success.
Vena now joins the ranks of celebrities like Lauryn Hill, Gabrielle Union, Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae and more who have graced the covers of this long-standing publication.
