If you want to look fabulous at this year’s Wonka Ball, but aren’t sure where to begin, then do we have a deal for you!
Reserve a BRAND NEW wig and then get your hair some attention from the owner of Blown by Bocaj and his assistants!
They’ll even style your own hair if you so choose!
You can also add a dramatic eye, design a bold lip or even spruce up your own makeup by his fierce drag assistants to match your new ‘do!
Each make-up moment is only $10, each wig (or hair service) is only $20.
Or get both together for $30 so you can be the queen/king of the ball!
All beauty purchases benefit AFT!
