TUPELO, MISS. ( WCBI) – For a couple of hours, the Zoom Room at HealthWorks was transformed into a beauty shop as six young ladies, who are patients at Lebonheur Children’s Hospital and the North Mississippi Medical Center, received star treatment.
Marguerite Cook, owner of Starkville’s Avant Garde Salon, along with stylist Catherine Jennings, pampered the princesses, providing hair, nail and makeup makeovers.
“When WCBI called and asked us would we do this we were honored to so we said yeah, we would love it. This is my Merry Christmas, this is the best thing that’s happened to me this year,” Cook said.
It was also special for the young ladies, who were getting the makeovers to help celebrate Disney on Ice Worlds of Fantasy as the star studded extravaganza stopped in Tupelo.
In fact, Disney reps asked my nephew Jorden, to come out and help interview the princesses.
Did you like your makeover? “Yes,” said Katy Mae Knight.
What was fun about it? “The Crown,” she said.
What did you just do? “Get a makeover,” said Emma Pearl Scott.
What was fun about it? “Getting my nails done,” she said.
Princess moms were grateful for the red carpet beauty treatment their daughters experienced
“This just made her day cause she never thought she would be able to do anything like this and getting to meet all these people, is a blessing for her,” said Jessie Knight.
“I think it is so sweet, for them to take time out of their busy schedule to come up here and do that it really means a lot,” said Kelly Scott.
“It was so rewarding getting to work with them and make their day,” said Avant Garde stylist Catherine Jennings.
Once the makeovers were complete, a special ride, courtesy of Cash’s Limousine service of Saltillo, was waiting to take the transformed princesses to the BancorpSouth Arena, where they would meet two well known characters.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse posed for photos with the special guests, then the young ladies and their families got to enjoy the show.
A perfect ending to a magical day.
