Hair Affair 2021

Explore the Grand Intersection of Art and Hair

The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art will host its seventh celebration of Hair Affair: The Art of Hair on Thursday, April 15, 2021. At Hair Affair, artful hair sculptures designed by Wisconsin-based stylists and salons will take center-stage as models descend the museum’s stunning glass staircase and mingle with guests in the MMoCA lobby. The evening will feature grooves from a live DJ, seasonal hors d’oeuvres from Fresco, cocktails, and other amusements.

Salons and stylists will be able to apply to participate in this runway show in December of 2020; and tickets will go on sale in February of 2021.
