2016 Top Salon Pre Event Party



A storm raged outside, but the mood remained upbeat at the 2016 Top Salon kickoff event at Recess Day and Nightclub on Nov. 18. Representatives of top salons, nominated by community members, mixed and mingled over drinks and a delectable spread provided by Madison Social while awaiting their time to shine in front of the camera. 

ElleBelle Photography’s cameras flashed as each salon team posed for a group photo that will appear in the 2016 January/February issue of Tallahassee Magazine.

The salon teams visited 2016 Top Salon event sponsors’ exhibit tables to learn what these generous businesses are graciously offering all Top Salon participants. Sweat Therapy Fitness and ThrIVe Hydration Clinic explained their services and assured models that they will have them looking and feeling their best over coming months. Sweat Therapy Fitness will be offering free fitness assessments and discounted rates on unlimited classes. ThrIVe Hydration Clinic is providing IV treatments and weekly B-12 injections to keep models energized and healthy. Narcissus will be outfitting each model in fashionable and flattering clothing for the big reveal. 

Presenting sponsor Dr. Russell Rainey welcomed and congratulated each participating salon. Dr. Rainey will be providing sparkling smiles to each of the models with teeth whitening services. Talent agent Marsha Doll made her way around the room greeting and giving words of wisdom to the models. All the while, DJ Greg Tish pumped out dance tracks that drowned out the sound of the rain. The night set the stage for the excitement and friendly competition that will build between now and the big reveal on Feb. 20.
