Jackson Ruiz Salon is bringing old Hollywood to Austin with their 2010 Austin Fashion Week event, “Lights, Camera… Fashion!” The salon is teaming up with neighboring boutique, Touch of Sass, and designers Lana Chu and Jessica Ciarla. Guests will be greeted by Austin’s own paparazzi as they walk the red carpet. Upon entering, attendees can sip on Tito’s “Glamtinis”, snack on hors d’oeuvres, and watch a unique fashion show featuring Jessica Ciarla’s “little white dresses” complimented with hats by Lana Chu.
Many hair stylists would find it challenging to style around the one of a kind hat designs of local Austin designer Lana Chu, but the Jackson Ruiz team sees it differently. When speaking with owner Allen Ruiz, he expressed his excitement for the salon/designer pairing. Instead of viewing the hats as a challenge, he views it as inspiration. However, ask Ruiz what he’s most excited about and he will quickly answer… the fashion awards show.
The team is responsible for hairstyle and make-up designs on all 24 models walking in the show. Joining forces with six different designers, Ruiz feels that it’s his responsibility to channel each designer’s message through his team’s hair and make-up creations. They are looking forward to exceeding the success of last year’s fashion show and winning the support of local beauty enthusiasts.
Interested in attending the events? Make your red carpet debut at Jackson Ruiz Salon on August 18 from 6p.m. and then show your support for the team with the 2nd Annual Austin Fashion Awards , August 21 5:30 p.m. at the Long Center.
