On Thursday, November 11, Bella Bethesda Salon pulled its talented staff together to host Hair & Now, a unique, high-glam runway show featuring looks from the Roaring Twenties through the 21st century.
Over 40 models hit the stage for a dazzling show complete with men’s, women’s and bridal styles. Set to mood music channeling each era, Bella Bethesda showcased it’s talents through classic recreations of eras past like bobs, pin curls and a killer Mohawk.
Although hair, makeup and fashion were the focus of the main event, the true purpose behind the party was to bring awareness to a wonderful organization in Washington, D.C. called N Street Village.
N Street Village offers a safe, empowering community for women facing homelessness, poverty, and related challenges such as mental illness, addiction, and chronic health problems. The organization currently serves nearly 900 women each year, providing services that include housing, mental health therapy, physical health and wellness programs, job training, and support for basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter.
Ticket sales and proceeds from Hair & Now helped Bella Bethesda donate $2,500 to this great nonprofit. We thank those who signed up for the Help the Homeless Walkathon as N Street Village supporters and to everyone for taking the time learn more about our special beneficiaries.
Our partnership and commitment to N Street Village didn’t end on the 11th. Bella Bethesda pledges to provide a future donation to N Street Village and is also looking into ways to get involved at their DC facility. As a women-owned business, we are great champions of N Street Village’s mission and the work they do. We look forward to what’s in store with this great relationship and involving you, our clients, in the process.
