The Mane Event

Charlotte's most premiere hair and fashion show begins at 5pm on April 30th, 2017 at CenterStage@NoDa, 2315 N Davidson St, Charlotte, NC 28205.

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.  we wanted to do this while also sharing the latest in hair fashion trends for all to see, and THE MANE EVENT was born!

Our vision is to support and showcase other local businesses and partners to create a true community event that will also give back in a big way.  in addition to partnering with all local designers, models and artists, we chose Victory Junction to be our beneficiary of proceeds from our show.  Be sure to visit their website and learn about the incredible work they do at victoryjunction.org.  

We hope that you will join us for this wonderful evening on April 30th, 2017 at 5 o'clock at CenterStage@NoDa (2315 N Davidson St, Charlotte, NC 28205) filled with inspired hair artistry, gorgeous designer clothing and an opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.
