Heidi’s Salon in Warrenville hosted a special girls’ day exclusively for the young ladies of Quest, Warrenville Youth & Family Service’s middle school program. At the salon, the girls received the royal treatment and were treated to colored hair extensions, curls, braids and manicures.

The field trip, however, wasn’t just fun and games. The girls also learned about the field of cosmetology and about Heidi, the salon owner, and her professional journey that landed her as a business owner. Heidi also shared some insight into the field of cosmetology.

The girls were also joined by an esthetician, who helped each girl identify her personal skin type and learn how to care for their own needs, as well as a masseuse, who shared information about massage therapy and its power to heal the human body.

“We are so thankful to Heidi’s Salon and Spa for donating this activity and teaching the girls to follow their dreams,” said Alicia Sremaniak, Quest lead teacher.
