http://www.empire.edu/cosmetology-sch... The Lehigh Valley location of Empire Beauty School in Whitehall, PA recently honored their students' moms and the other people who inspire them to follow their dreams. Come take a look at what happened at the Celebrating Mom Open House.
The school had their students invite their moms or other inspiring people to an open house event. Here, the students could show off what they had been learning to their moms and make them proud.
After indulging in some snacks like cookies and a delicious cake, moms could hop into their sons' and daughters' salon chairs and get some special treatment. Advanced students got to try out their cutting, coloring, and styling techniques on their moms. Moms could also receive manicures, pedicures, and other services.
Students who haven't reached the point of working on real clients got to show off the techniques they've learned on their mannequin heads. They had a competition to see who could come up with the most interesting hair style. Most students modeled their mannequin's hair after celebrities such as Katie Holmes, Michelle Obama and Katy Sagal. Their moms were very impressed by how far their sons and daughters had come in such a short amount of time.
At the end of the day, Empire presented a giant check from a fundraiser they had. The money the students and moms had raised went to a local Lehigh Valley charity called The Beginning Over Foundation. The Foundation's mission is to help shelter and protect families in crisis and support long term solutions to help them rebuild and sustain healthy lives and to raise awareness about intimate partner violence through education programs.
The Celebrating Mom Open House was a huge success. Moms got treated to a special day while students got to show off all their hard work. Plus the enormous amount of $3,621.17 was donated to The Beginning Over Foundation. At Empire, we care about your community, whether it's your family or the people in your neighborhood who are in need of support like domestic abuse shelters.
