The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art will host its fourth celebration of Hair Affair: The Art of Hair on Thursday, April 23, 2015. During the Hair Affair event, high-flying hair sculptures, designed by premier Madison-area salons, will take center-stage as models descend the museum’s stunning glass staircase and mingle with guests in the MMoCA lobby. Hair designs will reflect the theme for 2015: Cirque des Cheveux (Circus of the Hair). The evening will also feature DJ Nick Nice, seasonal hors d’oeuvres from Fresco, cocktails, and a silent auction filled with amazing and amusing items.

The event benefits MMoCA’s free exhibitions and education programs.


Hair Affair 2015 will feature the creative talents of fifteen area salons and stylists. Learn more.
