CLUB CUT Trend Event 2017
Wow! We are so overwhelmed by the amount of love we’ve received and positive feedback we’ve gotten from our Trend Event. It was such a beautiful night.
During the rehearsals I had to take a step back because I was tearing up. It has been a couple years since our last event and we wanted to go bigger then ever (and we did). Two years ago I heard this song by Bassnectar and knew it was the one our models would be strutting the stage to. When I saw it come to life the night of the event my eyes filled with tears and I couldn’t believe that something I’d dreamt of while driving and blasting my music on the way to work came to life.
Here we were just thirty minutes before doors opening and I’m trying to keep my composure with my back facing the stage. We needed to run through the set one more time and the models nailed it. Ready to go.
But just hours before the event we had our team hustling to get all things together. Caitlin, Peach, Gillian, and a number of other individuals from our team worked diligently to get what we needed set up. In between my clients and models I arranged flowers in vases for the tables (I know delegation is important, but I can’t let go of the things I enjoy). The models came in and we all got to work. 5 hours of hair and make up.
Brenna worked extremely hard to create a different look on each model as far as make-up goes. Working with each designer to collab on inspirations I think it’s safe to say she knocked it out of the park.
Lauren, Julianne & myself were focused on creating some incredible hair for the runway. Doing our own trend projections for the year to come we all had different ideas with a common core tying our looks together. Lauren went with a 70’s/Urban disco theme. Julianne was set with a Glam Rock theme. I went for a tribal/festival/bohemian vibe. The underlying core that tied us all together was texture. Lots of texture, movement, curl, braids. We’re seeing a lot of it and it’s not going anywhere.
Arrojo hit the nail on the head when they debuted their American Wave product line this year (yes we carry it at CUT). It’s formulated to really make the most out of your natural curls, natural texture, and give you low maintenance hair while looking incredible. We’re obsessed and you should be too. Although the entire line was formulated for those with curly texture, we’ve been using it on almost everyone. The Glint texturizing spray is a fan favorite. Between it’s incredibly fresh scent, the feel it leaves in the hair, texture and shine — it brings the best out of your hair — no matter what your texture is! Thank you to Arrojo for sponsoring our event with some giveaways and for the shampoo/conditioner combo everyone received for coming!
Anyway, back to the trend event. Our models were amazing. Not only did they spend the whole day with us, when they hit the runway they just turned it on. I mean, watch out Tyra banks I think CUT can start a new show all on our own. We love our models!!
The food was hands down the best we’ve ever had at one of our events. 55 Main catered our event and slayed! They had a few tables full of food as well as passing food around that everyone loved. The venue, Grape Finale was LIT and they also supplied the wine which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Of course we couldn’t have done anything without Base Entertainment. Their team provided the stage, music, lighting, photo booth and more! We’re so stoked to say they killed it of course and we didn’t expect anything else. Also want to shout out to Salon Centric for supplying us with some goodies for our goody bags. Huge shout out to our Photographer, Sam Nichols of NYC who came out and photographed the entire evening.
Thank you for everyone who came out and made CLUB CUT a night to remember. We love you and we cannot wait for the next event!
