Salon Professional Academy Runways to the Past

Looking for something a little different to do on a Thursday night? Check out the Salon Professional Academy's grand opening fashion show. At 6:30pm, 24 beautiful girls will walk straight out of the past into the now, as the salon presents its decades-inspired runway show.

"Each of our students had to focus on researching and replicating a 20-year span," says Joni Jarrell, the academy owner. Each segment of the show will have three girls styled from each generation with a fourth girl emulating a fashion icon from each time. "We have it all coordinated to really recreate the time—the music, the hair, the makeup," she says. Clothes and props were provided by Allure Boutique and the UF Theatre department.

Preceding the runway show there is a ribbon cutting to celebrate the salon's recent national accreditation. The event will also consist of a raffle benefitting the local American Cancer Society division, with prizes from AP Limousine, Ti Amo, Kinko's and Redken to name a few. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, which starts at 5:30pm, food and refreshments provided by Mad Hatters and Station Bakery in High Springs will be served.

The event will be from 5:30 to 7:30pm at 6915 NW 4th Blvd., Suite B. Admission is free.
