ScissorCandy™ regularly convenes hairstylists for Open Chair® events. Modeled after a classic “open mic” event where rising musicians perform their art form on stage to a live audience, Open Chair® provides up-and-coming hairstylists the opportunity to demonstrate their freestyle hair-cutting talents on live models that they have never met before in a casual Sunday night social environment. The event spotlights young stylists and provides a public platform for them to shine outside of the confines of the salon. Set to the sounds of the city’s up-and-coming DJs, the stylists become the performers in an unscripted production that energizes, inspires and entertains those who watch it. In addition to hairstylists, Open Chair® events feature makeup artists, models, food and drink specials, and hundreds of guests in and out of the beauty industry.
