What is the CatWalk?
This event is your chance to push all boundaries! Bust OUT all those ideas you have to GLAM OUT your client’s that - before now - they had nowhere to showcase these AVANT-GARDE looks. It’s your salon’s way to show off the talents of your fabulous stylists and bring huge awareness of your salon’s services, location and what is unique about you. And the bonus - it’s free to participate for your salon and all proceeds of the event benefit the Allen County SPCA.
You’ll be in a friendly competition with other salons throughout our area for the title of Top Cat! This New York style runway show will feature your over the TOP designs in hair, make-up and costumes on models you have selected to represent your salon.
The Cat Walk will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013. The event raises money for the homeless cats and dogs that are cared for by the Allen County SPCA. All funds raised will contribute to the medical, socialization and housing needs of these animals that need a second chance.
