The Hair-Raising Blowout Event for ACR Health's Q Center

Taking Hair and Fundraising to a Whole New Level

The popular fantasy hair event Blowout for ACR Health's Q Center is taking place this upcoming Sunday (February 19th) and it's looking to be another hair-raising year. Known for their fun themes each year, this year will be a bit different with the theme being "Freeform", meaning you can expect almost anything! Sistina & TeNesha were joined by Moe Harrington from ACR Health, the Event Coordinator, as well as last year's winner, Stephanie Dunvine from Bijou Salon in Skaneateles. 

While the event is fun for all, there is also a competition. There are 6 awards given out with cash prizes in the categories of best makeup, best presentation, 2nd runner up, runner up, Blowout Champion and, new for 2017, Miss Congeniality. Finally, there is an overall Best Look award given out with the 2017 plague. Salon's such as Bijou spend hours on these looks and take it incredibly seriously all while having a great time and raising funds for the Q Center. Harrington reminds us how important the Q Center is for the community and is the only one of it's kind to lend support to the LGBTQ community in the immediate Central New York Area. 

The "Freeform" Blowout Event will take place this Sunday, February 19th at the historic Landmark Theater in downtown Syracuse. It begins at 3:00pm and is expected to wrap up by 6:00pm. General seating costs $25 and VIP is $50 but includes a priority seat, gift bag, and reception provided by Attilio's Restaurant following the competition. For tickets, visit
