Local salon provides day of pampering

A day of pampering — that’s what residents of the Redmond Family Village could expect earlier this month with a visit to downtown Kirkland.

On June 1, the Bella Sirena Boutique Salon provided free haircuts to the residents of the Village, a complex that provides housing to people getting back on their feet after homelessness or life in shelters.

This event was organized by Bella Sirena, in partnership with Lake Street Catering, as a way to offer people a day of pampering “they don’t get the luxury of having, usually,” said event organizer and salon stylist Shelby Giovannini.

Lynn Christianson of Lake Street Catering — a client of the salon — donated her services for the event.

In addition to salon styling, guests also received a parting gift of hair products donated by Maly’s Beauty Supply.
