Celebrity stylist Guiseppe Franco (known for his work on the heads of Mena Suvari, Drew Barrymore, Brad Pitt and many others) compares the Stylist Star Challenge to the TED Talks, but with a focus on hair and success in the beauty industry. The all-day event will feature classes, talks and demonstrations designed to share practical and inspirational wisdom from industry legends with Albuquerque’s stylists and salons. In addition, local stylists will create glamorous styles on live models for event judges Franco and Kristoff Ball (Gwen Stefani, Pink) and the chance to attend a red-carpet Hollywood event. Albuquerque has many talented stylists and this event is an exciting step toward creating the more vibrant fashion scene we deserve. Tickets are on sale for industry professionals and spectators alike. Don’t miss it.
