A weekend of sophistication awaits you in Bay Ridge! Glam up with a one-on-one hair styling tutorial, then use your newfangled skills to gussy up for an evening of opera.

On Friday, head over to Bohemian Rose Hair Studio (8703 Third Ave. between 87th and 88th Street) for a 30-minute tutorial class where you’ll learn how to blow dry or curl your hair for a polished salon look every time. The one-on-one session will be taught by a stylist who will cater the lesson to your hair’s needs. The course will runs a steep $50, but you can snag a gift bag of hair care goodies on your way out — as well as a free drink voucher for Cebu Bar and Bistro (8801 Third Ave. at 88th Street), where you can head to immediately show off your salon quality ’do.

Now that your hair is on the next level, prepare yourself for a day of elevated entertainment. Doll yourself up and promenade to Vesuvio (7305 Third Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) at 3 pm for a free one-hour concert by the Regina Opera company, which will perform short excerpts from operas and Broadway shows. You can make it an early dinner and a show at this classy Italian bistro with a plate of pasta and a glass of wine.

Now that you have whetted your appetite for opera, plunge into the real thing at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Bay Ridge (9020 Third Ave. at 91st Street), where the Roman Borgman Opera Theater will perform “Manon Lescaut” at 7 pm. Set in France and Louisiana in the 18th century, the story follows two young lovers in a tale of lust, betrayal, and intrigue. Tickets will run you $20 at the door.
