The top stylists and salons in Sacramento are gearing up for the ultimate beauty showdown at the Hair and Fashion Battle 2014. Part trade show, part competition, the H&F Battle brings together the best of the best in the region to show off their skills in the areas of hair, makeup and fashion in front of a live audience and a panel of judges. This year’s competition will feature celebrity hosts Richard Hallmarq from Season 11 of “Project Runway” and Honey Mahogany from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” With cash and prizes up for grabs, the competitors will be bringing their A-game in terms of creativity, outlandishness, and innovation. This year’s theme for the event is “Going Hollywood,” and includes a runway show to display all the most impressive looks of the evening. While the battle starts at 6:30, attendees may want to come early for the trade show, which offers modeling 101, makeup 101, hair and design classes as well as the opportunity to test out and buy beauty products from top vendors. For anyone interested in design, makeup, skincare or hair, the Hair and Fashion Battle 2014 is a beautiful dream come true. So put on your loudest eyeshadow, tease your hair to the sky, and drop by the Scottish Rite Center on Aug. 23 to get your beauty on. For more information, see here.
