Having a skit as a part of a hair show can become a highlight of the festivities. Using classic favorites and giving them your own spin will make the skit entertaining for the audience. Add surprise twists and keep things lighthearted and funny so that you can get people to participate and not feel self-conscious because they’re not professionally-trained actors.
Create a skit based on the late 1960’s hit Broadway show “Hair.” Have stylists and models dressed in fringe suede jackets, bell-bottom jeans, flowered shirts and other styles from the era. Use karaoke to get the audience involved in singing along with tunes of the show. Recreate hairstyles from the era, such as big afros and waist-length straight hairstyles, to make the skit authentic.
Bring back the fashions, and the glamour and pompadour hairstyles featured in the hit show “Dream Girls.” Write a rags-to-riches story that takes an aspiring stylist from a small-town beauty salon to the bright lights and big-city stages in New York and Hollywood. Play classic music from the Motown era and dress actors like the singing group The Supremes. Use male stylists and models to mimic other popular Motown groups like The Temptations and The Four Tops. Get a choreographer to teach dance routines to the actors.
Dancing with the Stylists
Take the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars” and turn it into a contest skit. Team stylists with models or even members from the audience to compete. Have the audience vote by applause and give a free styling session to the winners.
Build a skit around the popular play and movie “Hair Spray,” where a plus-size girl wins a chance to appear on a television dance contest show. Rent the movie to come up with a script for the skit. Create life-size cans, bottles and jars of popular hair products as backdrops. Get companies to sponsor the skit, allowing their products to be featured.
Write a take-off on the classic Grimm Brothers’ fairytale “Rapunzel.” Have a model with long hair shut in the tower. Other models play the wicked enchantress and the prince. Write funny stories around the prince and his exploits to rescue Rapunzel and the famous line: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair, so that I might climb the golden stair.” Make the longest braid possible for Rapunzel using different hair colors, extensions, and different hair textures to make the audience laugh. When Rapunzel and the prince get rid of the wicked enchantress, they can go on to live happily ever after by opening a multi-million dollar chain of hair salons all over the world.
