Retailer Launches Charity to provide Underprivileged Girls Dresses for Dances

69010_1_img8837-1_2
The Founder of UsTrendy which specializes in fashion for juniors and young women, has launched a philanthropic foundation called “The Believe in Yourself Project.”  The program provided thousands of dresses to girls and young women who could not otherwise afford them, to wear at their upcoming school dances. In 2017, The Believe in Yourself Project will be providing dresses for winter dances and homecoming.

In conjunction with donating dresses, Sisakhti seeks to create a mentor program that will provide mentoring services and other support and also bring in women speakers to talk to the girls. The aim is to promote a positive body image and healthy self esteem among young women at an early age, empowering these young girls to take on active social roles within their school communities and to feel good about themselves.

Donations began last winter. “It is truly amazing experience to hear many of the girls say that they now have the confidence to attend their first school dance, now that they have a dress that they feel good about wearing,” says Sisakhti.

This coming week, UsTrendy will be delivering more dresses to the Boys and Girls Clubs around country.

Nicole Kidman Dazzles at the 2016 Critic’s Choice Awards

unnamed-2

 

Tonight, at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar in California, Nicole Kidman shined on the red carpet in her gorgeous gown and sleek hair style. Her go-to hairstylist, Kylee Heath, used MOP haircare and Cricket Co. products to create this glamorous and sophisticated look.

Please see below the step-by-step, imagery can be found here and let me know if you need any additional information!

Hairstylist: Kylee Heath

Inspiration: “The dress, we wanted to keep the hair classic, but also modern and sleek”

Style: Middle part low twisted knot with the hair fanned out to the side

“I started off by applying MOP Lemongrass Lift ($22) to Nicole’s roots and Pear Detangler ($22) to the ends. Then I combed the product evenly through the hair 

Next, I blow-dried the hair using the Ultra Smooth™ Professional Hair Dryer ($96.95) and Technique™ Silk Thermal 370 1.75″ ($15.99) round brush to really smooth out the hair

At the crown, I blow-dried the hair in an upward motion to give it more lift

Once the hair was dry I smoothed out the hair from midshaft to end with the Ultra Smooth™ Professional Styling Iron($89.95)

 I warmed MOP molding cream ($22) in my hands and used it to smooth out ends, tame flyaways and to lay down the cuticle 

Then, I pulled all of Nicole’s hair back low at the nape of her neck, twisted the hair around my hand and secured it using small bobby pins leaving the ends of the hair out so that they fanned out toward the side

 Next I sprayed the C-system Firm Finish Hairspray($24) for hold and added shine

 Last, we decided to pull two small pieces of hair from the front for added softness”
