You will need to bring your own tools and supplies (we do have some make up available). Ideally, we are looking for professional make up artists or people with experience and expertise.
  • Hair Stylists: Provide simple hair styles for students: flat iron, curling, pinning, etc,. and basic styling for the guys; approximately 15 minutes per students.  No hair washing is permitted. We do have some hair accessories available, but you will need to bring your own hair irons, brushes and combs.  Ideally, we are looking for professional hair stylists with experience and expertise.  
  • Seamstress/Sewers: provide minor alterations (hems and straps only) for the outfits the students select, if needed. Students will take their outfits home with them so any alterations need to be done on-site.  You will need to bring your own sewing machine.  We have some accessories available.
  • Runner: Jobs include returning unwanted gowns from the changing rooms to the racks; restocking the shoe racks, jewelry tables, tie racks; replenishing food and drinks in the seamstress and stylist areas, etc.  Wear your running shoes!

You will be unpacking and displaying the inventory, helping to set up tables, racks, change rooms, etc. Sunday’s break down involves re-packing all items for storage.   Expect to spend approximately 3-4 hours for set up and 2 – 3 hours for break down.  
  • Moving Crew: This is a PAID CASH position.  Movers will haul the inventory from our warehouse (located in Vancouver near the PNE) and unpack the moving truck at the Surrey location.
