The first Friday of each month, Bend has a First Friday Art walk. Artists of all kinds team up with downtown businesses to showcase their art. Businesses stay open past normal business hours and supply wine and beer tastings. People are invited to shop, look at art, hear live music, network and socialize.
We decided as a salon to participate in first Friday every few months. Myself and six other stylists used live models to showcase our skills with updos and styles. People walked around, watched, asked questions and took photos as we created our "hair art". It was truly a fantastic event and a great opportunity to let our imaginations and creativity fly.
For my model, I braided both sides of the head around the temple area and created a side swept mohawk with lots of volume starting at the crown of her head all the way down to the nape. It came out fun, funky and sassy!
I am already excited about the next first Friday art/wine walk we participate in. Until next time!
