Hair & Fashion Battle All Stars

Salon 2nd (2)

The Hair & Fashion Battle (H+FB) just had it’s 6th year this past Saturday, September 24th.  This was no ordinary battle.  Event producer Marlett Berry brought out all the stars.  In this All-Star battle, the featured winners of the past five years competed head to head in a hair-raising competition.

Not only were there stars in battle, but the H+FB was a soiree of notables.  Candidate for Elk Grove Mayor Tracie Stafford hosted the event.  The production also brought back the original host of the first H+FB, Naima Mora the winner of America’s Next Top Model cycle 4.  Mora is such an avid supporter of Sacramento we consider her an honorary local. One of her more high profile appearances was in 2013 when she took on the role as the ambassador for Sacramento Fashion Week (SACFW), and helped kick off the week with a number of special event appearances.
