Representing Planet Hair at New York Fashion Week

During the week of February 9, around 125,000 people will attend fashion shows during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 and over 2 million will watch the shows online to see the trends the international designers have prepared for fall. It’s an exciting event in the fashion business and a crazy, fun time to be in New York City.

This year we’ll know at least a few people who will be there in person! Mel, Jessie and Emma will be joining the Aveda Fashion Week team, working behind the scenes to create the hair and makeup looks walking down the runway! These three were given opportunity of a lifetime by writing an essay, telling us why they wanted to attend Fashion Week.

Emma told us, “I’ve always wanted to be a part of Fashion Week, since I watched runway shows a little kid, but I never thought I’d have the opportunity to take part in it. This is a dream come true!”

In preparation for their big adventure, Emma, Mel and Jessie recently attended training in New York for runway styling. Mel and Jessie studied with Jon Reyman, the lead stylist of the Aveda Fashion Week team. With 20 years of experience creating runway hair styles for Fashion Week, Jon showed them hair do’s they’ll need to know for the shows. Emma studied with Janell Geason, lead makeup artist of the Aveda Fashion Week team, to practice this season’s makeup techniques and how to use products differently for the runway.

They will return to New York in February for three days of hard work. Joining 75 other international Aveda artists, they’ll work in small teams at the actual Fashion Week runway shows. Creating looks for around three shows each day, the artists will be shown a quick demo of the looks that Jon and Janell have decided on with each show’s designer, and will be expected to quickly replicate that exact look on many models.

We can’t wait to hear their stories when they get back. Stay tuned for more about their fabulous fashion adventure!

We’re #1!

bestWe were blown away at the Wichita Business Journal’s luncheon recognizing the recipients of the 2016 Best Places to Work! We knew, going in, that we were one of the 10 small sized businesses being honored. What we didn’t know is that our score qualified us to be the overall winner of the small company category!

This award is especially meaningful to us, because this is really an award from our extraordinary team. They all answered a survey about our employment practices, giving us the highest score in the category. We are humbled, grateful and thrilled!

We Are Honored!

Planet HairWe’re excited to announce that we’ve been selected to two very big honors! We’re being honored by the Wichita Arts Council  for their Arts Advocate Group or Business. We’ve also been selected by the Wichita Business Journal as one of ten 2016 honorees for the small-business Best Places to Work for the second year in a row!

The Arts Council award is for an organization or business that is dedicated to furthering the cause of an art form or the arts in general through promotional, volunteer, administrative, legislative or professional efforts. We were selected for this award for the extravagant fashion shows the Planet Hair team have created, benefiting charity and arts organizations. From 1993 to 2012, we produced the ArtAID event, raising over $1.5 million to help people living with HIV and AIDS in our community get resources, education and support. The event included a live and silent auction, made possible through the contributions from the area’s top visual artists and art patrons. Our team created elaborate hair styles, make-up, and costuming and incorporated the talent of local and national dancers, musicians, and actors, to create a show that was entertaining and breathtakingly beautiful.

Since retiring from ArtAID, we’ve continued to be active in our community, creating hairstyles and wigs, costumes and choreography for artistic runway shows benefiting charity and arts organizations. We helped the Wichita Art Museum celebrate the grand opening and first anniversary of their incredible Art Garden, and helped raise money for Aveda’s Give to the Earth Foundation with the EarthQUAKE show, featuring wigs and costumes made of recycled materials.

We love being selected for the Best Places to Work, because this honor comes to us from our staff. Our awesome team filled out surveys administered by Quantum Workplace about how they feel about working at Planet Hair. We’re very honored they think we’re the best.

We’ve all worked together to create an atmosphere and culture that we can look forward to when we come to work every day. We love working with such a professional, talented team of people who are dedicated to working together toward a shared commitment to style, our community and the world. Our dedicated guests give us the privilege to do what we do. We are winners indeed!
