MSC-Minnesota School of Cosmetology – Plymouth hosted their First Annual Fall Fashion Show on Tuesday, September 30th and Saturday, October 4th.
The Fashion Show featured an overall Disney theme. Each student or group of students were able to choose their own sub-theme to reflect their creativity and talent. MSC-Plymouth students had a month to imagine and practice their looks, and were allowed to have as many models as they wished. Minnesota School of Cosmetology partnered with Redken representatives, who provided tips to the students and donated fabulous prizes for our winners.
Sub-themes for the September 30th show included: a modernized Snow White, The Cheetah Girls, fairies and pirates from The Pirate Fairy, Ursula from The Little Mermaid (3rd place winner), Princess Jasmine and Raja from Aladdin, Alice and the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland (2nd place winner), and a lion, a high-fashion Zazu, and an everyday Zazu look from The Lion King (1st place winner).
Our part-time students’ sub-themes on October 4th included: Jack Skellington and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas (2nd place winner), Gem from Tron, Princess Elsa from Frozen, Snow White and Cinderella as Pin-Up Girls (2nd place winner), and Ariel and Ursula from The Little Mermaid (1st place winner).
In addition, local salon owners and stylists were invited to enjoy the show and to observe fresh, upcoming talent. On Tuesday, September 30th, salon owners and stylists from seven salons were in attendance to show their support and act as our VIP Guest Judges. After the runway show, these industry professionals were able to meet MSC students one-on-one, to observe their work up close, and to discuss potential career opportunities. One MSC student was even offered a job on the spot! Salons in attendance included: Regis Salon, The Salon at Macy’s, Simonsons Salon and Spa, Willow Salon, Christopher J. Salon, Alibi the Salon, and Mask Hair Designs and Day Spa.
Congratulations to all of our students on a job well done! Check out pictures of all the looks on the MSC Facebook page.
