Roseville spa and salon gives women a new start
By: Anna Morgado Special to The Press-Tribune
Adora Bella Day Spa & Salon in Roseville recently partnered with the Adopt A Block program and gave some Roseville women a new start and a fresh look. Ten women and girls were selected to receive new haircuts and styles to help them on their way to a new life. “It was an opportunity to give back to the women in our community,” said salon owner and stylist Crystal Cannon Karakas. “We were able to assist women who are trying to better themselves and their families.” Adopt A Block is a not for profit program that began in Los Angeles seven years ago. “The highlight for the evening was when a woman came in whose hair had broken off a while ago and she had no money to get it fixed,” said stylist Cassie Lawson. “She said that she was so miserable that she didn’t even want to look in the mirror anymore. But after we gave her a new cut she was so excited. We could tell that she walked out with restored self confidence.” Salon manager Lindsey Garrett saw the same transformations in the other women. “We were able to help these women enter the job market with style and confidence,” she said. This is the third year in a row that the Adora Bella has participated in this program and they plan to continue the tradition next year. “When you look good, you feel good,” Garrett said. Adora Bella Day Spa and Salon is located at 1470 Eureka Road in Roseville.
