Pin-Up Curls Hosts Prom Night, Grown-Up Style!

If you’re looking for a date night that breaks up the ho-hum dinner and a movie routine, you need to mark your calendar for April 22nd. The Pin-Up Curls salon will be hosting an adult masquerade prom at the Fort Wayne Country Club to benefit the Livestrong Foundation, and it’s going to be a blast! I met with Erin Raber, owner and “head curl” of Pin-Up Curls to get the highlights of what they’re planning for the event and found out that this group goes above and beyond to have fun with their clients.   “We love all our guests, and we like to think of them as family, not clients. To keep the salon family-oriented, we celebrate days and events that remind us of our families and family traditions. We love to dress up and decorate the salon. Last Halloween, we turned the salon into a story book and dressed up as characters like Pinocchio, Tinker Bell, and the Big Bad Wolf! On Fridays, we host birthday parties for little girls and their buddies. We also love to do style parties. This is a night to teach our guest and her friends ways to care for and style their hair. They are so much fun!”     If you’re looking for a fresh new look, you need to check out what the talented staff at Pin-Up Curls can do. Winner of Salon Today’s Top 200 salons in the nation two years in a row, The Curls, as they affectionately call themselves, travel across the nation to places like Chicago, New Orleans, San Diego, and LA to bring the latest trends home to Fort Wayne. The Pin-Up Curls Masquerade Prom will be held at the Fort Wayne Country Club from 7pm-10pm on April 22nd. Prom tickets are $50 per couple and include light snacks, dancing, cash bar, silent auction and fun! Stop in to Pin-Up Curls today to purchase your tickets. You can have your hair styled for prom on April 22nd from 1-3pm, cost is $25. All proceeds from the prom will go to the Livestrong Foundation. Pin-Up Curls is located at 6222 Covington Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46804. Follow them on...
