Did you attend the Girls Night Out Party on Madison 2 weeks ago? Over 120 people attended to show their support and donate to battered women’s shelters. Nicole Flagg, owner of Beshe Boutique (children’s clothing consignment) held this event with organizer, Terrilynn Amos, owner of Turnstyle Boutique. “It’s been a fantastic turn out and good to see women come together to relax and have fun while supporting other women“, said Terrilynn. Also involved was Carol Lynn’s Salon Plus owner, Carol Congeni, doing nails and paraffin dips. Watch for another event soon!... If you ever need anything mended or made, Torry Tustan of Torry’s Threads can help! Her needle skills come from decades of seamstress experience at the Ritz Carlton and Playhouse Square…Ever since they were kids, sisters Natalie and Brandi Schwartz dreamed of opening a salon together. Their shop, Color by Numbers, offers standard services plus those harder to find like long lasting gel lacquer nails and Brazilian blow-out smoothing treatments, to name just a few. They also participate in the “Matter of Trust -Oil Spills Program” in which salons donate cut hair to soak up oil spills!
