It was a packed salon on Wednesday, July 10 when the Blow Out Lounge & Color Bar hosted “Beauty Bonding & Bedazzle,” an event where moms and daughters spent quality time enjoying each other’s company while getting their hair styled.
Nicole Zwibel, owner of the Blow Out Lounge, was on hand to meet the mothers and daughters, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere, and serving refreshments provided by Jimmy Brooklyn’s Pizza Parlor. The staff worked diligently on the duos, styling and blowing out hairdos for more than 40 mothers and daughters.
Zwibel has owned the local salon for less than a year, but she has lived in Wellington with her family for 15 years. She aims to give back to the community, and the mother-daughter event is only one small part of her commitment.
Zwibel met Aimee Weisberger Stern, founder of the local Mom’s Club, when the salon opened. The two became fast friends, sharing a belief and commitment to give back to the community. Last week’s event had many moms from the club attending.
“One of my clients introduced me to Aimee,” Zwibel recalled. “She called me one day about a young woman who was going to have a double lung transplant. She needed help with her hair and makeup to go to a prom. It was such a beautiful experience. Aimee and I had an instant connection.”
Zwibel credited Stern for coming up with the mother-daughter event. “When I was younger, this is the vision that made me want to own a salon,” Zwibel said. “I envisioned a place where moms and daughters could come to spend time together. It’s amazing to me to see all of the moms and daughters bonding with one another.”
