Jacks of all Trades

Sometimes, no matter how much you plan and prep for an event, things just don’t always go the way you had hoped they will. This last weekend our students were requested to do hair and makeup for the Northern California Summer Session Show at the Starlite Lounge in Downtown Sacramento. They arrived the morning of the show pumped and ready to get to work. Unfortunately, they were the only ones. Upon arrival they found out that almost all of the models had cancelled. Not ones to let things fall apart, and experts at multitasking, they decided to fill the roles of models AND hair and makeup artists.

They took turns working on the models that were able to attend while also working on each other. Ensuring that there  would be enough models to handle all of the planned looks.

Even our barber students, JoJo and Priscilla were pulling double duty for the day. Once they were done giving clean ups to the male models in attendance, Priscilla moved on the female models and started setting curls. JoJo went on to capture behind the scenes pictures of the prep process for us, documenting all of the excitement and chaos.

Once they were set for the runway the show went off without a hitch. They had 3 different clothing lines and there was a performance by a few local break-dancers.

Ms. Kay, our Outreach Manager said, “At the risk of giving away my age, I felt like I was back in high-school again. There was such a great energy from the crowd and the performers.”

It was great to see our students step up and make sure everything went smoothly, no matter the obstacles. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work!
