During Women’s History Month, Headchop Salon in Williamsburg, shut down for International Women’s Day and volunteered beauty services to pamper six ladies from Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) Transitional Living Community (TLC). The BCS TLC program in East New York supports women who are temporarily in the shelter system and are recovering from severe trauma, such as domestic violence, sexual assault and mental health conditions and are seeking secure, safe and permanent housing.
The day of glam makeovers for the TLC ladies included professional hairstylists, makeup artists and a photographer. Headchop, which has been named one of the “10 Best Hair Salons in NYC” by Gothamist,” is a destination dry cutting studio for all hair types. These lucky TLC ladies have reached their housing milestone services and will soon leave the shelter for their own apartments.
“The impact that a beauty a makeover has on TLC women that are close to permanent housing is amazing,” said Adrienne Terry, Program Director of BCS Transitional Living Community (TLC). “Not only does the makeover provide them a sense of normalcy, it is an ultimate reward for all the hard work they accomplished that led up obtaining permanent housing.”
Thanks to Headchop, each TLC lady received a new personal look for their new personal space.
