This weekend, orrell design got an opportunity to feature work at the fourth annual Big Hair Ball. The Big Hair Ball is a charity fashion show/ fundraiser presented by The Guild of Family Service of Greensboro Foundation. All contributions benefit this foundation and help change lives all across our community.
As Kerrie always says, “You have to give to get!”
For the record, it did not feel like charity— it felt like FUN! Our models arrived at the salon Saturday afternoon 4 hours prior to show time. Caleb, Valentin, Brittany and I had signed up to help! Luckily, we had a surprise guest- Miss Kerrie Orrell- Thank Goodness! We needed her help!
After hours of sculpting, teasing and prepping we were ready for show time! After going home for a quick refresh and a much needed change of attire- the od team arrived at the Empire Room in downtown Greensboro. There was a raffle during cocktail hour to also raise money. It was so nice to see all of the local businesses coming together to support such a great cause!
After the Raffle, we took our seats and waited in excitement to see our girls walk across the stage!
First was Brittany’s model. Her sponsor was Classic Construction of NC— so with her own construction, Brittany created beautiful BIG hair into a sculpted style!
Second was Kerrie’s model. Her sponsor was BlueZoom graphic design. To incorporate design- Kerrie used lots of different textures and sizes within the hair. Oh and a little touch of blue!
Third was my model. My sponsor was Green Ford. So to carry on the "green, earthy” look, I bobby pinned some leaves and branches into the hair! The makeup I kept pretty natural- again to reflect “green”.
Fourth to walk was Caleb’s model. His sponsor was Pita Delight. Caleb did a great job referencing some Middle Eastern hair designs as well as keeping it modern and high fashion!
Last, but certainly not least, was Valentin’s model. His sponsor was Box Board products. Valentin said the sun was his inspiration as he recreated sun rays with her hair! So cool!
