Mods and Rockers

Mods and Rockers were two polar opposite British youth subcultures in the early 60’s. They differed in everything from clothing, grooming and music. The rockers had a tough look, riding motorcycles and wearing leather jackets, while the mods had a more sophisticated look, riding scooters and wearing suits. The two groups created a media frenzy with their running public battles between each other and caused a moral panic about the British youth. Conflicts between the two began to diminish in the late 60’s and now in 2012 the subcultures are stating to make a come back. So the ScissorCandy team brought them to Philadelphia in all day event that rocked. The hair was done by Gabrielle Falco and Nadine Manne from (Richard Nicholas Hair Studio)  Alexey Kats and Brittiany Cunningham from (Architeqt Salon) Make-up was done by Ashly Gadille and Tiffany Schaffer from (Dina Alon Hair Studio) Video By Optioue Productions.

Tease Pin-up Hair Show


As the grand finale of Design Philadelphia, ScissorCandy brought vivacious vixens together for Tease pin-up show, an event that seduced and allured you with a provocative experience where hair, beauty, and fashion flirted their way to center stage. Ten salons created saucy sirens out of models by giving their interpretations of pin-up beauty through hair, make-up, and wardrobe. These mingling pin-up minxes titillated you from several stages and around the room, enticing guests to join them for a picture or a tease makeover by our guest hairstylist. 10/23/11 Philadelphia Pa: Photos by Ken Penn.( and Saquan Stimpson (monsterphotoiso).
