Hot Tool Class hosted by The Hair Room JC
The holiday season is upon us and when things get hectic, we don’t have the time to get our hair professionally styled for all of the upcoming events. Forget the holiday season, sometimes it’s great to do something different all throughout the year! Instead of a simple ponytail (nothing wrong with that- ponytails have saved many of us from horrible hair days) learn the tricks of the trade from the amazing ladies at The Hair Room! On Wednesday, November 13th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, learn the secret to waves, blowouts and working with hot tools.
Aside from learning from the best, this event will also have refreshments! If that’s not an incentive, we don’t know what is!
Tickets are $30 and are available on Eventbrite.
