The Blow Dry Lounge (BDL) inside the Mall at Greece Ridge Mall is partnering with Building Better Foundations mentorship program to offer free natural hair styles to young women ages 11 to 17 on every 4th Sunday of each month.
Falicia Fracassi is owner at Blow Dry Lounge and several other beauty businesses throughout New York State and Florida and she’s excited about the new partnership with Building Bridges Foundations mentorship program.
“I consistently work to identify creative ways to collaborate with the communities my clients come from,” said Fracassi. “This is another way I’m sharing my resources to continue to inspire young women. By having the Building Better Foundations mentorship program as a partner, the Blow Dry Lounge will not only offer young women an opportunity to enhance their beauty, we welcome Shantel Brown, the founder of Building Better Foundations, as one of our newest stylists who will also lead the outreach initiative.”
Shantel Brown is the founder of Building Better Foundations. She is also a counselor and works with students throughout the city of Rochester. Prior to finalizing the partnership with Blow Dry Lounge, Brown said she also offers complimentary hair care services to young women while working inside local schools.
“I’m always inspired to impact the lives of young people,” said Brown. “Through this new partnership I will be able to reach more young women who will be able to sit in my chair at the salon while I do their hair (for free) and have thought-provoking conversation about how they are preparing for their future.”
To receive complimentary natural hair styles at Blow Dry Lounge on the 4th Sunday of each month, young women can call 585-340-7308 for a simple hair and self-care phone consultation and to book an appointment with Shantel Brown.
