Fashion on the Fourth

by Amanda Bedgood

Salon celebrates 4th of July with fashion, food and fundraising

The ladies over at Mon Reve are planning an opening for the downtown salon the likes of which we haven't seen - fashion show, BBQ, mini massages. The event slated for July 4th is a celebration and grand opening of sorts for the new salon on Lafayette Street and benefits the American Heart Association.

Mon Reve (helmed by Nicole David) will be styling hair and makeup for the mavens fromĀ  Maven who will hit the runway. Rusty Noel will cater BBQ brisket, potato salad, baked beans - classic Independence Day eats. Live music and drinks round out the shindig and it's all for a recommended donation of $15 that goes to American Heart. That donation gives you a ticket for a 15-minute stress relieving massage or an application of red hair chalk to commemorate the 4th or a makeup touch up by the experts.

The event is from 6 to 9 p.m.
