If hair is the afterthought of most runway shows, Ananda Hair Salon’s upcoming fashion production, “A Moment in Time,” flips that idea on its well-coiffed head. The show, from which all proceeds benefit HandMade in America, takes place on Sunday, June 15, at The Millroom. Ananda’s stylists paired their creativity and expertise with that of local fashion, makeup and jewelry artists to create looks inspired by various historically significant eras — both real and imagined.

Not all time periods Ananda chose are based on factual history. Jessica Nielsen represents the fictitious sail age with her long mermaid hair and found treasures from under the sea. Clothing designer Charles Josef and jewelry designer Amber Hatchett collaborated on the mermaid look, dreamed up by  hair stylist Mary Emory.
