KAPAA — There was no shortage of princesses Sunday at Salon J in Kapaa.
“We had a rush when it started,” said Raffy Jimenez, a salon professional. “We have another rush coming up. This is the time we can catch our breath.”
Salon J hosted its Princess Day 2016 at its salon in Kapaa where girls aged 3 to 13 could become princesses. The experience included having their hair done, nails made up, and a make-up session from Salon J professionals. A souvenir photo through the courtesy of C & N Photography and a goodie bag completed the treatment.
“C & N Photography is new this year,” said Jeanette Huttger, daughter of Salon J owner Jackie Shea. “All of the proceeds from this event are donated to the YWCA of Kauai. C & N is donating their services and all the paper for the printing. We’ve done this for several years now, so we keep getting better.”
Crystal Yap of C & N Photography said her husband trains with Jackie’s husband, so they were asked about helping out with the event.
“Jackie also knows that I do this,” Yap said. “It’s a natural for young people and make-overs.”
Jimenez said she’s been working at the Princess Day event since it started at least three years ago.
“I just got through doing two of my nieces,” the stylist said. “This is the next generation. They’ll take over after me.”
