July 6-10, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) – Samuel Cole Salon stylists were on hand to help budding fashionistas who attended Austin Jade’s Fashion Rocks Camp. Stylists offered tips, performed demonstrations, answered questions, and gave hands-on instruction to students. Jade Murray is the camp’s creator who is a local designer turned national fashion prodigy with her clothing line, Austin Jade. She developed this week long event to inspire young people with a passion for fashion. The students attended fashion-oriented classes all week which culminated in the camp’s grand finale, a fashion show for family and friends. Samuel Cole Salon stylists were on-hand daily to help prepare the students who would do hair and makeup on models themselves for the show that featured looks chosen by Jade. “It was so gratifying to watch these students take what they had learned and translate it into very professional runway hair and makeup creations on the models”, commented a stylist, a Samuel Cole Salon stylist and renowned makeup artist.
“Samuel Cole Salon are always eager to get involved with the local fashion scene. Having worked with Jade during Raleigh Fashion Week & Strut 09, we didn’t hesitate when she asked us to be involved in her camp. She is a phenomenal designer and a joy to work with”, remarked a Salon Cole Salon Director.
“Samuel Cole Salon are so up-to-date in trends, fashion, and the art of hair and makeup designs that this collective blend of our worlds just made sense. I needed a team of talented people in the fore-front of their industry with a great reputation and I found the best”, said Murray.
Both salons were presented with the camp’s official t-shirt with autographs from the very talented and enthusiastic students as a thank you. “What a perfect way to show their appreciation for all of our stylists’ hard work and dedication. Our teams are remarkable. They are very deserving of this recognition”, said Joelle Ray who owns the two salons with her husband and master stylist, Jack Ray.
