Hi-Please let me know if you are interested in doing hair or makeup or either or both and I will be putting a team together for this great event! I volunteered last year and it was a lot of fun and a great show with Darcelle’s Poison Ivy as hostess. Here is the info:
Hope this finds you well! My name is Anna, and I’m dropping a note from all of us here at The Right Brain Initiative to invite you to join us for our annual benefit show, SHIFT: an experiment in fashion design. A celebration of arts-integrated learning in more than 70 K-8 public schools across the Portland Metro region, SHIFT directly benefits The Right Brain Initiative’s mission to revolutionize education through the arts. It’s also the most fantastic, creative, radical runway show around—featuring artists of all ages and their garments made from found and nontraditional materials. J The event on October 3 is coming up fast, and (in case you can’t tell) we’re SO excited!
Date: October 3, 2019
Time: 2:30-5:30 (set-up, hair and makeup); 6:00-9:00 (main event)
Hair Stylist Details: We will have 30 models who will need hair and makeup (ranging from 8 years old to seniors). Our creative team will decide on the look for all models. We generally choose a simple look for both hair/makeup (ie. last year each model wore some sort of slicked back bun).
Note: This is an unpaid opportunity but we will happily share photos from the event for your portfolio. You must provide all your styling tools and products. You will have food and drink throughout the afternoon and will be well-taken care of!
And, of course, while this is a volunteer opportunity, we want to make sure to express our sincere thanks! Volunteering for SHIFT guarantees you a general admission ticket to the show, which means you get free food (amazing hors d’oeuvres and dessert!) and 2 free drink tokens. When you are finished serving in your volunteer role timeframe, you get to attend and enjoy the event. (Yaaay! It’s gonna be so good.) If you are volunteering during the day you will receive lunch.
SHIFT has completely sold out in advance the last two years, and we expect this year to be the best yet—but we truly couldn’t do any of it without the support and partnership of our community. If you are able to join us on October 3, please be in touch and let me know if you are interested in hair or makeup, and whether you have any questions! Thanks so much in advance.
