Prom Dreams come true for Gwinnett Teens

Prom Dreams come true for Gwinnett Teens

Salon Disegno loves to give back to Gwinnett!  Earlier this month, we teamed up with Gwinnett County DFCS (Devision of Family and Children Services) to provide essentials for a perfect prom night.  This 4th annual Promstarganza provided dresses, tuxes and shoes for teens in need.  Along with the formal attire, teens also received hair and make-up tips for the big night!

Our lovely stylists (some pictured above) donated their time and skills to be a part of this amazing event.  As stylists, we get the opportunity to talk to many of the people in Gwinnett and we feel it is very important to contribute to the local community. Every month we have a specific service project.  With our specific skill set, helping teens with a prom look is right up our alley.

“Seeing the transformation was beautiful!  Those girls were so different from start to finish, inside and out!”  ~ Katie Jo Williams

You could really see that the girls felt beautiful.  They were so grateful and sweet.  One of the girls hugged me after I did her hair and make up.  She said we are magical fairies! ” ~ Christina Lindsey

Prom is meant to be a fun, memorable experience, and I think we helped bring a little of that excitement back to the girls!” ~ Hollyanne Porter

“This opportunity to make these young women feel beautiful was so fulfilling and rewarding! I feel lucky to be able to share something that I love doing with people that get so much out of it.”  Amanda Chase

We helped the girls feel pretty and like they can actually have fun at prom and not worry about wearing or looking the part…It was really touching to me.” Hannah Moore

A big THANK YOU to our guests who donated gently used prom gowns, donating makes a huge difference!

If you ever want to help, ask your stylist how Salon Disegno is giving back this month.  Also, you can donate to our Fringe Benefits program.  We draw from that to provide local scholarships and fund other projects that help out all around Gwinnett.
