REVIEW: Detroit Fashion Week Salon Showcase

Models styled by John Gooden  
Detroit Fashion Week Salon Showcase - Fashionably Late and Totally Hot!

On Wednesday night, I was given an unique opportunity to experience a very fashionable side of metro Detroit.  For those of you that don't know, this week is Detroit Fashion Week.  The events kicked off on Sunday, September 19th with a press party launch event downtown at The Whitney and Detroit Fashion Week will end with the Fashion Couture Showcase on Saturday night.  Last night was the FREE Salon Showcase at the Douglas J Aveda Institute in Royal Oak.

The Salon Showcase featured hair styling from four local area hair salons.  I really did not know what to expect from the show.  Was it going to be like the infamous Bonner Brothers Hair Show that was featured in the Chris Rock documentary "Good Hair" with smoke machines, dancers and stylists hanging upside down cutting hair?  I really doubted it was going to be that kind of show, but I definitely made sure to bring my camera to catch every moment - just in case.

Some things are worth waiting for
I am a stickler for events starting relatively on time. So as I was sitting there 50 minutes after the scheduled start time, I was hoping that the show was going to be worth the wait. And I have to say, it definitely was. It was 15 minutes of rocking hair and fashions. No out of this world hairdos were shown - just beautiful, shiny, superbly styled hair accompanied by clothing and makeup to seal the deal. I would count it a privilege to have my hair styled at any of these salons. One salon sported a rock-and-roll vibe. Others showed quiet elegance and one went for total over-the-top glam showmanship. They all did a great job.

So let me show you some of what I saw so you can judge for yourselves...
