Universal Warrior Fantasy Hair Competition Showcases Philly Salons

The Universal Warrior Fantasy Hair Competition
The Universal Warrior Fantasy Hair Competition benefits City of Hope

This weekend in Philadelphia, PA, City of Hope – one of the nation’s top cancer research hospitals and treatment centers – celebrates its COH Hair Ball, now known as Universal Warrior: Fantasy Hair Competition, at Voyeur nightclub in Philly's Midtown Village. Area salons will compete with their best creations, all with a futuristic theme, for prize packages worth over $5000. The contest will be judged by a panel of Philadelphia media and celebrities, and will feature a performance by Brittany Lynn’s Drag Mafia.

The annual Universal Warrior event acts as the local finale to the HopeCuts Mid-Atlantic 2013 campaign, a beauty industry fundraising effort for cancer and HIV/AIDS research through City of Hope. This year, the Philly area’s finest salons will present looks with a future-forward science fiction theme, so expect lots of alien hair-dos and star-warring styles to battle for Universal Warrior supremacy. These entries will be judged by a panel of area notables such as food magnate/actor Tony Luke Jr., G-Philly editor Josh Middleton, local sports media personality Tony Bruno, Tango traffic reporter Gina Gannon,  PHL17-TV’s Zach Lashway, and Glamorosi Magazine’s husband and wife team: A.D. Amorosi and me, Glamorosi.

One of the night's brightest highlights (and we're not talking hair dye) will be a performance by renowned cross-dressing stars, Brittany Lynn's Drag Mafia.

Universal Warrior: Fantasy Hair Competition is Saturday, November 2, 8:00 PM, at Voyeur (1225 St. James Place) with a $10 cover. All proceeds go to City of Hope. For more information call 1.800.344.8169 or visit HopeCuts.org.
