Inspiration and creativity was in abundance when Yvette Brown’s Cosmopolitan Connections presented “The Rock n’ Hair Show Model Event!” on August 1 at Republic Kitchen and Bar. The event featured a runway show upstairs and an English singer downstairs.

The main attraction of the evening was Master Stylist “XIS.” “He is going to by styling nine or 10 models’ hair,” Yvette explained, “and show off their new look in a fashion runway show.”
Yvette met XIS at one of her events.
“We hit it off right away,” XIS recalled. “I realized she was highlighting professional artists at her events.”
“We love to showcase talent at our events,” added Yvette.
Yvette announced, “We will be doing one of these a month at different venues.”
XIS stated, “I am very happy with tonight’s event. I can’t wait until the next one.”
“It (the event) turned out amazing,” continued XIS.
XIS has been styling hair for 16 years. His inspiration came when he was 11 years old.
“What inspired me was my dad,” explained XIS. “I opened up a neighborhood barbery.”
“I love working as a hair stylist. I’m an artist,” XIS noted. “The people I style are a walking billboard to show my artistry off.”
“I can find inspiration almost anywhere,” XIS added. “I love people ultimately.
XIS currently performs his artistry at Euphoria Salon in Boca Park at 8850 W. Charleston Blvd.
Also featured at the events was English singer Ellessa Love.
Ellessa has been singing in Las Vegas for the past four years. She met Yvette originally on Facebook.
“We seem to have hit it off very well,” recalled Ellessa. “She invited me to sing at one of the events.”
“I thought tonight was the perfect night and venue,” continued Yvette. “We always love to have live entertainment.”
Ellessa is also part of a signing duet called “The Loves,” with her husband Marc Love.
“I am very honored to be here,” added Ellessa.
“We are excited to be invited back (to Republic Kitchen),” Yvette noted. “This is our only venue in Henderson.”
Having events at Republic Kitchen is part of Yvette’s plan to host events from Summerlin to Henderson.
“We try to hit up all parts of town,” explained Yvette.
She has succeeded since last week’s location, Via Brasil, is located in Summerlin. The remainder of her events has taken place on the Las Vegas strip, which is between Henderson and Summerlin.
