In honor of its illustrious five-year journey, O&M proudly unveils the House of Silky for ‘The Grand Silky Ball,’ held amidst the vibrant ambiance of Vivid Sydney 2024 at Machine Hall on June 8th. With Sheridan Rose acting as Hair Director and sponsored by O&M haircare, the event was in short a showcase of opulent looks and avant-garde styles.

O&M ambassador Sheridan Rose Shaw from MAMAWEST, specializing in gender-fluid styles and cutting-edge colour techniques, embraced the mantra of celebrating individuality through her hair direction. Rose expresses, “It’s all about celebrating each model’s uniqueness and enhancing their natural beauty.”

The House of Silky, founded by ‘Father Xaddy’ and ‘Mother Miri’ on Gadigal land in 2019, has burgeoned into a symbol of style and inclusivity, with branches in Naarm and Boorloo. Their legacy, rooted in the spirit of QTIPOC excellence and self-expression, has reverberated across stages worldwide, including Sydney World Pride 2023 and Australian Fashion Week.

With a nod to the pioneering Black and Latinx femme queens of New York, House of Silky encapsulates the very essence of Pride Month, fostering community and camaraderie. “It’s a night of voguing, fashion, and chosen-family revelry,” declares House of Silky, emphasizing the event’s ethos of unity and celebration.

Key products used in crafting the looks for the larger than life affair? O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray, Atonic Thickening Spritz, and – of course! – the Original Queenie Firm Hold Hairspray. 

As the beauty world converges to celebrate diversity and creativity, the Grand Silky Ball stands as a beacon of empowerment and self-expression, uniting communities and igniting passions under the luminous glow of Vivid Sydney 2024.
