DCCC to Showcase Hair through the Decades with ‘Locks that Rock’ Event

Locks that Rock

April 10, 2013 – Davidson County Community College will soon host a hair-raising event that will surely make heads turn. The event, “Locks that Rock,” presented by the DCCC Cosmetic Arts program, the Cosmetic Arts students and The Total Image Cosmetic Arts Club, will be held at 6 p.m. on April 26 in the Brinkley Gym on the Davidson Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

“The event is set up a little bit like a music awards show. Models will walk the runway and show off their beautiful, crazy and sometimes whimsical hairstyles and makeup,” says Kim Combs, instructor of cosmetology at DCCC.

Students, faculty and staff at DCCC will get in on the action by serving as hair models for the event, which will showcase the hairstyles of famous musicians from the 1970s to today.

Combs says as part of the show, students will get an inside look at how a successful runway show is put together.

“The event is certainly fun and entertaining, but the purpose of the event is to encourage teamwork among students and coming together as a unified unit to pull off a huge production,” Combs says. “Without teamwork, a successful show is just a dream. It takes time management and organizational skills to put a show like this together – and this gives them the opportunity to learn that.”

The event also gives students an opportunity to learn how to build fantasy hair pieces. “Students are often able to enter into contests once they learn how to build fantasy hair pieces, which not only helps them make a name for themselves, but gives them the potential to earn a lot of money,” Combs adds.

“We hope the community will come out and enjoy the show. The event is wonderful entertainment and a great time to see the hard work and talents of our students,” Combs says. “And, we have a surprise finale that is sure to be a showstopper, as well as a tribute to a legend in the music industry. It’s something you won’t want to miss.”
