In this episode of Radio Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with Big Hair Ball chair Belle Du Chene to discuss the 2017 event. This year's Big Hair Ball theme will be Alchemy, inspired by the exhibition Alchemy: Transformations in Gold.

The Big Hair Ball, which began in 2004 and is hosted biennially, is one of the most highly anticipated events in the Des Moines area and statewide. Known for its modeled hairstyles, live music, and special performances, which celebrate hair as a form of artistic self-expression, the Big Hair Ball has been profiled extensively in local, state, and national media. The highlight of the evening is an hour-long choreographed runway program, produced entirely by local salons and a volunteer committee. Local boutiques also participate in the event by offering hair, nail, and make-up artistry to event attendees, which average more than 750.
