Hair Ball Returns!
Lawndale Art Center Houston

December, 2013

Lawndale Art Center's preeminent hair-raising event returns January 25, 2014. It's coming and it's bigger and taller than ever, Lawndale's infamous fundraiser, Hair Ball.

 Hair Ball has been named one of "The Best Parties in America" by People magazine, featured on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "Good Morning America" and in InStyle magazine and The Los Angeles Times.



This ball that started it all returns with food, drink, music and, of course, partygoers "tressed up" in colossal coifs and hair sculptures. For the 10th time Lawndale is going to throw the party of the century and you are not going to want to miss it.
