Make-Over Contest Winner – Eclips Salon, by Stephanie Dillenseger

As part of their generous sponsorship to Red, White & BRAM, Eclips Day Spa and Salon chose another lucky winner to receive a full make-over at their salon.  The second of their Brambleton Summer Makeover Series was lucky winner, Coco!
Coco entered because she wanted to feel more feminine. Growing up she was a very competitive athlete keeping her hair short, she never felt the need to buy hair tools, accessories or even style her hair. Coco wanted a refreshed look to give her more confidence and that's exactly what she got! 

Kay gave her low lights and highlights to keep her blonde but add some natural dimension. The ladies gave her some tips for curling and styling her hair before Yer applied a minimal amount of makeup, smoothing her complexion and enhancing her amazing features!

Meet the Brambleton Town Center Merchants - Natalie Perkins, Owner

Natalie grew up knowing she would follow in her father’s footsteps and open her own business one day. Her original plan, however, had nothing to do with ballet. “I grew up in a program very much like Bella Ballerina’s where I was taught the basics of tap, jazz and ballet. I also taught dance during high school and college. When coming up with a business plan, I had a moment of realization that this type of business was a better fit for me, and was an industry I had lots of experience in. It was an easy push in the right direction and has been fantastic ever since!” said Natalie.  

She understands what parents are looking for in activities for their kids, having a daughter of her own. “Ultimately, parents need simple, clear and concise options. We build everything we do around the needs and wants of our parents.” 

She opened Bella Ballerina in Brambleton in 2011 and has since expanded to two other locations. Bella Ballerina offers children’s dance lessons, like ballet, tap and jazz, and ladies' fitness classes, birthday and special events. They also offer on-site programs in daycares and preschools. 

BREAKING NEWS: Bella Ballerina is incredibly excited to promote their next venture which will bring the Bella Ballerina program to studios around the country! They are looking for studios to PARTNER with to bring them the same success they have had.  For more information on the program, please visit www.bellabusinesssolutions.com.
