Butte’s most extravagant runway hair and style show -- with 95 models in the lineup -- starts at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 8, in the Butte High School auditorium, 401 S. Wyoming St.
Titled “Revolve,’’ the fourth annual show features “live hair art,’’ music and dancing.
It’s what producer Leigh-Ann Whitworth calls the “Project Runway for Butte, Montana … you get to see what they come up with.’’
Whitworth, who operates Essentials Salon, said the theme is “how love makes the world go round.’’
The show features nine scenes -- each featuring a different culture, exploring the old and the new.
“We make it into a story … some life performances on stage,’’ she said.
Among the featured artists are Christian Parrish (aka Supaman) of Billings, a Crow hip-hop artist and dancer and “YouTube sensation,’’ Whitworth said. In native costume, Supaman meshes his Native American culture with modern hip-hop.
Shayla Cox will sing opera, Frank Hall provides recorded music with The Mixx, a stilt walker and aerial silk dancers also are planned, among others.
All the clothing in the show is “repurposed,’’ she said. “Nothing is new.’’ Yet the designs make it difficult to tell that.
Besides Whitworth, others spearheading the show are Cooper Fisher, director; Bridgett Petritz and Judy Pugh, head of wardrobe; and Tasha Rich, choreography.
Essentials, Jade Hair Studio, Studio 19, Sugar and Spice, and the Butte Academy of Beauty Culture comprise the style team.
Tickets are $25 and $35 and are available from Essentials Salon, 128 S. Main St., or at the door. Details: 406-310-0185 or email@example.com.
