We're partnering with Katey McKee, as she steps up as the new proprietress of Glama-Rama! Salon. Mermaid hair meets magical waistlines for the hair runway show, showcasing corseted looks for a range of gender presentations. Other featured stylists and designers include Jen Hofmann and Lust Designs latex, original Glama-Rama founder Deena Davenport, Hair by Helzer, and Onika Simone.

There will also be a special "Wear Something on Your Head" competition with gift bag prizes. Conveniently, here at the Dark Garden boutique, we just restocked our selection of perky Pop Antique fascinators and one-of-a-kind Kalico Delafay millinery creations. Come into 321 Linden St., San Francisco, and play dress up with us! We're open 7 days a week.

Speaking personally, Katey McKee is so supremely talented that she's the only one I trust with my own hair. She's got a wonderful sense of color and the technical skills to match, bringing hair visions to life with panache. I'm delighted that we have the opportunity to partner with such an amazing stylist from another wonderful local business. I hope we'll see you there!
