What’s a mermaid without enviable hair and gorgeous make up? The expert stylists from Alchemy: the workshop will start your transformation at the braid bar, creating a look you’ll love. Then they’ll top it off with mermaid inspired makeup. Now that’s some tail-flipping fun.
Your marvelous mermaid hair deserves just the right accessory. Visit the creative crew at Crowned Sparrow Co. where they will help you transform a boring dinglehopper (mermaid speak for fork) into a happening hair clip . Add your new creation to your braided crown for extra mermaid glamour or save it for the office. We think you just started a new fashion trend.
Toast your look
Becoming a mermaid is hard work, luckily the Mermaid Yo Self event has libations to suit every aquatic taste. When you purchase your March 17 ticket using the MERMAIDYOSELF promo code, your first beer from The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is on the house. There will also be a cash bar and specialty cocktails to enjoy while finalizing your look, creating hair ware and having a great night out with friends.
