Beauty On The Block
We recently had the immense pleasure of teaming up with In His Image Hair Studio of Trenton NJ to serve the local community in a very unique way. Owners and Operator, Antonio and Diane Bellamy opened their salon to the homeless and less fortunate to provide free hair styling, clothing, food, gift bags filled with personal hygiene products and a portrait of themselves as a reminder of how beautiful they all are. In addition to us, In His Image Studios partnered with The Salvation Army, Zera Hayes Foundation and My Good Stuff For Less Thrift Store to make this amazing act of kindness and love a success.
The aim was to remind these women, that although they are currently having a hard time, they are no less beautiful, important, lovely or loved than they've ever been! It was such a blessing to be able to witness the pure joy on everyone's faces once their makeover was complete. I'll never forget the expression of one young woman as she emerged from the changing room, smiling ear to ear she said: "I look like a totally different person! I feel amazing!"
