This phenomenal hair team gave us a circus themed runway performance. I don't know what I was excepting but I know one thing, I got way more than anticipated. Unique's Total Image gave you drama of the good kind. Their mix of dance choreography with explosive hair in every color imaginable. All components of the designs were intertwined perfectly. I actually forgot it was a hair competition and not a nightclub revue. The music had me ready for so much more. This was a great way to start the show. I was truly in awe of the level of artistic expertise I witnessed on the runway.
The flow keep moving right along with Chrissy's Angels who gave us a halo of hair. Sleek sophistication was the vibe with Chrissy's Angels. Very nice.
Vela Davis gave us everything they had to
offer. Colorful attitudes mixed with a bold and
This team utilized a crazy mixture of different mediums: feathers, peat moss, tulle (I want my very own tutu), large hoops, colorful leggings, sequins and rhinestones. Even a paper skirt or something like it was cool. It was ridiculously fabu!
There was so much eye-candy from head to toe starting with grand ornate hairstyles on down. And who doesn't love a cute little girl in a blue and purple tutu working the runway with her mad diva-tude. You betta work it girl! Chicago's Vela Davis turned hair into hat boxes, tank tops, hair adorned platform stilettos,

faves, put on an outstanding performance.
The Hair by Peair team looked sexy hot and on trend in all white especially with
HBP dancers . They were a lot of fun. I've noticed several of the stylists showed many diverse looks with dreadlocks.
Locks have become increasingly popular
within the last decade. It was awesome to see
them showcased on the runway.

the show. Dizzie's personality is larger than life.

Then came the evening and bridal wear. Oh wow these gowns were amazing. STRUT came to make a statement on the runway. Whether a bridesmaid dress or evening dress, the use of color was not spared with this brand.
The strapless full length yellow dress was stunning. I loved the orange and teal hues working up from the bottom up looking like a flame. A bright melon colored full length gown was worn with full confidence. My favorite was the strapless shimmering blue dress. I'm on the hunt for that one.
What I liked most about STRUT is all the gowns were
in full color. Not hidden behind black to give the
illusion of being smaller. Curvy women love color too
and should never be afraid to wear it.
Crystals strategically placed on the bust line and waistline also give a figure flattering look. This wedding gown is simplistically beautiful. I was wowed beyond belief.
FAB Weekend had various local artists entertaining the crowd. Opening the show was
Kenny Thames and granddaughter Ebony.

A big shout out to Kathy Blaze Jefferson and Terrance Hudson for putting together an extravagantly jam packed show. This was the 2nd annual FAB Weekend event and my first of many more to come in the future.
