February 20, 2008 (RALEIGH, NC) – Jack and Joelle Ray, the husband-and-wife team behind Samuel Cole Salon in North Raleigh, will help select the runway models for STRUT, a televised fashion show to be held in North Hills on May 3, 2008. The Rays’ salon was selected as “Official Salon” for the show, which means their stylists will create all of the hair and make up designs for the event.
Auditions for models will be held at The Mint on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh on March 4. STRUT organizers Brian Williams and Betzi Hekman say they will need over 30 men and women to model clothing and accessories by top designers with Raleigh “roots,” including Miranda Laughlin, Amy Stephenson, Guy Marshall, Elizabeth Yarborough and Holly Aiken. Several Raleigh-area boutiques will also participate in the show.
The Rays will be on hand at the auditions to make sure the models selected also offer opportunities for high-end hair designs.
