“It is not just a boring hair show,” said coordinator Gloria Landreth, who also owns Hair Dynamix. “It allows us to let our hair down.”
Landreth said that they are modeling their show after the over-the-top, flamboyant Paul Mitchell hair show “The Gathering.”
But will it be as wild as this Las Vegas production?
“We have a balloon dress,” Landreth said. “We have a dress out of newspaper.
“We have a skirt done out of a trash bag and a bustier done out of aluminum foil.”
Throughout the show, which will also include a variety of skits, representatives from Ronald McDonald House will take the stage along with some of those people that the house has helped through the years.
It is this support of families that prompted Landreth to want to help out the organization.
Sixteen years ago, on Christmas Eve, her son, Jared, was born with a birth defect. Surgery was required to remove a deformed part of his intestine.
Neither she nor her husband, John, were making much money. She was a dispatcher. He was a police officer. Both worked in Beeville, and the cost was too high to stay a week in Corpus Christi while their newborn son recovered at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
Ronald McDonald House was there, offering a place to lay their heads and much needed support from the staff.
This is also the second time that Landreth will be doing a hair show benefit.
A similar one was held in 2010 with great success.
“You will leave there thinking ‘Whoa, this is Beeville,” Landreth said.
Landreth recalled that, during the last show, she also remembers seeing several guys in the audience.
“When we did one in 2010, the guys that were dragged there by their spouses were the ones calling the next year wanting to go to another show,” she said.
Tickets for the show are $10 pre-sale at the salon in downtown Beeville or $15 at the door of the Bee County Expo Center that night. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m.
