Eau Claire (WQOW)- It's all glitz and glam Thursday night at The Lismore in Eau Claire, as artists around the Chippewa Valley are expressing their styles at the annual hair ball.
The Hair Ball is set to start at 6:30 p.m., and artists have the opportunity to compete in six categories which include makeup/ body paint, avante garde, extensions, shape, glamour and prism.
Some of the money raised at the event helps local charities.
Jeaning Goetch is a hair stylist at Eclipse Saloon in Altoona. She said she's been up since 5 a.m.preparing for the ball, and is entering three models into the contest.
Goetch said the ball is a lot of fun because you get to see what other artist come up with.
"You can really get inspired by all the other influencers is what I would like to say, the hair influencers out there," Goetch said. "You can take little bits and pieces and say hey oh my god, that's a great way to use that, or that's a creative way, I never would have thought about that and really see how people think outside of the box."
Artists will have to wait until 10 p.m. to find out if they have the winning look.
