You are invited to a fabulous evening of fashion and beauty December 6th from 6 to 9 pm at Helen Ainson here in Darien. This is our 3rd year providing all hair and makeup for the models who will show off beautiful sportswear, formalwear, and accessories from Helen Ainson.
If you would like to attend, please R.S.V.P to 203-655-9841 and bring a new unwrapped toy to donate to Toys For Tots. If you cannot bring a toy, admission is $30 and a toy will be provided for you from the Toy Box, also located in Darien.
This past Wednesday evening we were privileged once again to participate in Helen Ainson’s 2nd Annual Toys For Tots Fashion Show, and what a success it was! It gave us the perfect opportunity to test drive our brand new makeup line on the beautiful ladies modeling that evening! Our new line is filled with gorgeous, sumptuous shades of color, in luxurious creams and powders for every day, or sparkles and glimmer for those special occasions!
Models were treated to blowouts and makeup to enhance their individual features and tastes as they strutted down the “runway” that evening. Our own Paula and Natalya were stunning models in figure hugging dresses and glittering jewels, and we also provided two lucky ladies with head to toe makeovers. The evening featured delicious passed hors d’oeuvres from Festivities Catering and Event Planning, and goodie bags filled with special treats.
The best part of the evening was seeing the generous spirit of those who attended. Two huge boxes of toys, as well as monetary donations were given, which we know will put a smile on some beautiful children’s faces this holiday season! Thank you to all who attended and made this a huge success again this year!
Weren’t able to attend this year? Look for it next year and enjoy an evening of fashion, food and fun, all with the effort to give back during the holidays!
We are getting ready for the holidays, and will again be participating in Helen Ainson’s 2nd Annual Toys For Tots Fashion Show. This fun event will take place next Wednesday evening from 6 to 9 pm and features a fashion show full of beautiful clothing and accessories, 2 head-to-toe makeovers from our talent here at the salon, entertaining ideas from Festivities Catering, and tips on staying fit through the holidays from The Bar Method Darien. Most important is that all those who wish to attend must bring a new, unwrapped toy which will be donated to Toys For Tots. Helen Ainson will also offer attendees the option of donating $30 and The Darien Toy Box will provide the toy(s). We are all about putting smiles on children’s faces with the gift of a new toy!
The evening will be filled with fashion, food and fun, and include appetizers provided by Festivities Catering. Goodie bags will also be given out, and include coupons, samples and more! Helen Ainson will have their Holiday Gift Table filled with great gifts and stocking stuffers ready for checking off all those on the “nice” list this holiday season!
We will be providing makeup for many of the models in the fashion show as well as doing makeovers on 2 lovely ladies. Guests will be able to see a blown up photo of both women “before” and then we will reveal the “after” that evening at the event!
Want to attend? Simply give Helen Ainson a call 203-655-9841 and let them know you will be attending. Bring a friend and a new, unwrapped toy and get in the holiday spirit! Hope to see you there!
The Darien Community Association held it’s first luncheon of the season and kicked it off with a “Fashion Show for the Generations” this past Tuesday, October 4th. The fashion show featured clothing and accessories from The Darien Sports Shop and 10 beautiful models showed off two outfits each to a group of almost 100 ladies.
We were thrilled to provide hair and makeup for the models prior (and touch ups during!) to the fashion show. A big thanks to Ourania, Natalya, Tina, Ali and Miro for coming in early and doing an absolutely beautiful job in styling all of the models hair. Netta, Jessie and Dee provided gorgeous makeup applications on the ladies so needless to say, the models all looked amazing!
Once the lunch and fashion show were over, our talented Dee had a volunteer from the audience serve as her model to demonstrate how to achieve “The Perfect Smokey Eye”, as well as giving great makeup tips to all the ladies. Dee took questions from the audience on her recommendations for makeup, the benefits of eyelash extensions and lots more!
We were delighted when we were asked to participate in a “Ladies Night Out” and help with blowouts for hair and makeup for a fashion show at Wilson Point in Rowayton, CT. Noreen Anderer, a long time customer of Helen Ainson gathered together 7 models and a large group of her neighbors and friends for this fun night filled with fashion, food and beauty!
We offered to do hair and makeup on any of the models who were interested in getting primped by us! We spoke with Dee about the summer makeup and beauty trends as she worked her magic on one of the models, Barbara Callahan. Top trends are bright eye shadow colors, lips and nails. Also important according to Dee is the use of contour and highlighting, which is very big right now! Fuller brows are a must and can make you look more youthful. Eyelash extensions continue to be a trend that is not going anywhere soon! Once you experience full, lush, long eyelashes you’ll be hooked! Not sure how to achieve these looks? Make an appointment with Dee for a one-on-one makeup lesson!
Here are some highlights from the Wilson Point Fashion Show for “Ladies Night Out”!
