BROOKLINE—Newly revamped salon HC Studio on Station Street in Brookline welcomes clients to a blow dry workshop next Monday, October 7. The hands-on class encourages you to bring all those challenging hair gadgets and mysterious products (what on earth does a hair powder do?) to receive a lesson in how to properly blowout your hair. The $50 class is run by Jen Tawa (stylist working on the NYFW shows for The Row, Libertine, and Theory), with that $50 being immediately redeemable in merchandise credit.

BURLINGTON—Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, Simon Fashion Now sets up at the Burlington Mall for a couple days of styling and runway presentations, punctuated by "The Pink Project." This Design Wars show begins at 12pm, with local fashion students competing to create pink garments for models from the Ellie Fund—all of which are cancer survivors, volunteers, or have strong connection to Breast Cancer Awareness. The looks will be judged by a panel of local style personalities. [Racked Inbox]
