A Mercy Makeover

On Monday, July 28th, three young women from the Mercy Ministries Nashville home were invited to A Moment’s Peace Salon and Day Spa to receive complimentary makeovers including haircuts, color, and makeup. Nashville Lifestyles, a local society publication, arranged the makeovers in order to highlight the work of Mercy Ministries in their upcoming September magazine.
Haley, Audrey and Cindy couldn’t believe their eyes after stylists Kristy Osborne, Jessica Bayne, Amber Wood, and Janell Cantrell gave them the makeover of their dreams. Each girl had her hair and makeup done. Then they modeled back-to-school clothes, supplied by Hemline, for a professional photo shoot. The girls loved their new looks and enjoyed their day of pampering and fun.
When the girls walked out the door four hours later, they were amazed at the transformation that had taken place! Audrey said, “The day was so special, and to me it wasn’t just about being dolled up, but it was about caring people who loved us and shared their time and talent to bless us. That was amazing to me and touched me deeply.”
Mercy Ministries would like to thank A Moment’s Peace Managers, Danielle LaFaye and Danielle Lotito. We would also like to thank the makeup artist and stylists, Kristy Osborne, Jessica Bayne, Amber Wood, and Janell Cantrell for providing their services free of charge to these three young women. Also, special thanks to Amy Gray of Gray PR and Nashville Lifestyles Assistant Editor Stephanie Stewart for making this event a reality!
