9th Annual student hair show Storybook Tales returns to Career Tech Center

Cosmetology students from the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) and Nuvo College of Cosmetology will be hosting Storybook Tales, their 9th Annual Hair show, on Thursday, March 23, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Career Tech Center. A total of 71 students, 50 from the MACTC, will be participating.

Hair show entries are presented on live models that students spend the afternoon preparing for the event. Each model will walk a catwalk to show off the stylist’s creation. Participants will be judged on four categories: hair, makeup, nails, and overall look. Winners are selected by a panel of judges. For a $1 donation, guests may vote for their favorite in the popular vote category.

Muskegon High School student Jessica Gilbert chose Sacajawea for her theme. “I like her because she’s a beautiful Indian leader that every girl can aspire to be like,” shared Gilbert.
