Students from the International Institute of Cosmetology and models arrived at the crack of dawn, 6:30 a.m., at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville, Conn. to put their hairdressing (and makeup) skills to the test.
It was graduation day for many of the students. And as is the custom each year at IIC, students put on a hair fashion show where they demonstrated what they had learned at the Plainville, Conn. and Wethersfield, Conn. campuses.
This was what was happening backstage and during runway rehearsal before the 1:15 p.m .showtime on Sunday, Oct. 22.
