The Big Hair Ball was held Saturday evening in the Regency Room at Elm Center. WFMY News 2's Tanya Rivera was the emcee of the event. The dresses and hair were designed by students who are part of the Consumer Apparel and Retail Studies program at UNCG. Hundreds of hours went into each of the gowns and hair styles that were shown at the event. The money raised at the ball will benefit the Family Service of Greensboro Foundation and programs offered in Greensboro by Family Services of the Piedmont.
