Cheers to the snippers at Headchop Salon for supplying makeovers, new ’dos, and pampering to the ladies from Brooklyn Community Services’ Transitional Living Community. The whole shop shut down to provide a little tender loving care in honor of International Women’s Day to provide six lucky gals who have reached their housing milestone services and will soon leave the shelter for their own apartments. Amenities on spa day included professional hairstylists, makeup artists, and a photographer to document the makeovers.
The Transitional Living Community program in East New York supports women who are temporarily in the shelter system and are recovering from severe trauma, such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and mental health conditions and are seeking secure, safe, and permanent housing.
“The impact that a beauty makeover has on TLC women that are close to permanent housing is amazing,” said Adrienne Terry, program director at the agency. “Not only does the makeover provide them a sense of normalcy, it is an ultimate reward for all the hard work they accomplished that led up obtaining permanent housing.”
Standing O gives a great big O to the staff at Headchop Salon and a big high-five to the women who are starting on the next part of their journey, “Good luck ladies.”
