PARK(ing) day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers, and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. Originating in San Francisco in 2005, the idea behind PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, and to make the streets—for a moment—more about community...and fun!
This year, Mishi will be staging a hair intervention at the Morphic parklet by quickly transforming your everyday hairstyle into a braided work of art-- at the Morphic Braid Bar! The parklet will be a stripped down version of the Morphic salon, with fun parking day decor (featuring the Morphic Smart car), free wi-fi, and Mishi’s signature coconut water supply. This PARK(ing) day, we’ll be braiding away with Brenda the Master Braider and documenting each style with photo and video media. There will be great music, and free gifts from Rene Furterer for anyone who posts or tweets about the parklet on the spot! We’ve got to keep that meter running, so feel free to bring a few quarters to keep it fed! Be sure to check out last year's parklet, Flowers In Your Hair on our facebook page!
Come check us out and get your Morphic braid on! We love you guys and can't wait to see you there!
