Breaking News from 42…


“The design melds the history of hair — think antique hair tools — with a modern, yet warm, feel. It incorporates high, open ceilings and recycled wood.”

-Jennifer Thomas, Charlotte Business Journal

“It was Jason’s dream to own a hair salon one day. I was his client before we fell in love and got married; and now that his dream has come true, he works 10-hour days as the artistic director of our salons while I manage the business administratively.”

-Cara Viers, Lake Norman Woman

Named for the number "42"-being the answer to life, the universe and everything (hair), we wanted to bring this full circle and create something special here in Charlotte, NC.  Our inspiring and talented designers create hair masterpieces everyday and we wanted to provide them and our community with a special event to showcase their talent and bring you the best hair styles of the decades! Through our passion of HAIR and love for our Community Partners and the desire to support and inspire women and men everywhere, THE MANE EVENT was born! Charlotte's most premiere Hair Show!

Our vision is to support our community and we want our event to give back in a big way.  We are donating a portion of the proceeds to Dove's Nest, Charlotte Rescue Mission's cost-free women's program.  Dove's Nest supports and welcomes women and mother's with their children to provide them with a place to rest and focus on their spiritual, physical, social and psychological growth in a safe environment and helping aid them to recovery.
