Hi there, CapFABBers! Just wanted to pop over on this sunny Saturday morning to share a fun opportunity in the area that might just appeal to some of our beauty- and hair-obsessed members…
For those of you who call Bethesda home — or want to spend a leisurely morning or afternoon up in MD — Bumble and bumble is holding a styling class at The Shop Salon in Bethesda as part of their Bumble and bumble. UNIVERSITY Model Project.
The styling academy is seeking female hair models to participate on Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, and receive, wait for it, a FREE professional blow dry (and styling product).
Sound fun? All you have to do is send a current photo (one that shows your current hair length and natural texture, not curled or straightened) and you cell phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to tweet @capFABB if you end up attending, because Bumble and bumble is hoping to build a database of bloggers and beauty enthusiasts around the DMV and this is such a fun way to start!
Have a nice weekend!
