It is prom night for Mallorie Debroux and Fawn White. Both are getting their hair and nails done for the Night to Shine prom, which is a dance for people ages 14 and up who have special needs.
Janet D'Amato owns Salon Brillare, where the transformations are taking place. "We are doing this because we think that the ladies should have a chance to shine, and that has been our tagline from the beginning when we opened our business," she says.
The salon is doing hair and nails for 12 girls. Employees like Erika Altreuther donated their time to glam up the girls.
"If I can make someone feel as pretty as possible for one night I am going to be on that," Altreuther said.
D'Amato adds, "All of my girls are independent and they all willingly volunteered themselves so that they could come in and help out, and they felt it was a worthwhile cause."
Debroux says she cannot wait to put on her dress, "My dress is black with a bunch of bling bling." Her favorite song is the Electric Slide.
White thinks she knows what the guys will do when they see the girls all dressed up, "They're going to say 'you look beautiful.'"
It is a fun day of pampering for some grateful girls.
"Thank you for taking time out of their schedule to do this, and I think it was a nice gesture of them," White said.
Night to Shine prom takes place at churches and facilities all over the country, thanks to the Tim Tebow Foundation. Get more info here.
