Carson will host hairstyling awards.
Working hard to shake gay stereotypes, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy main guy Carson Kressley will host the North American Hairstyling Awards. Those who think Kyan might be more qualified for the gig will be thrilled to know, thanks to a press release, that Carson “comes to NAHA highly qualified. An independent stylist who spent many years working with Polo Ralph Lauren, Carson specialized in the design aspect of the men’s sportswear division.” Held at Mandalay Bay on July 17, the show will not be televised, although $75 tickets are available.
