Bella Bethesda Salon Holds Hair Show to Support Women’s Shelter

Bella Bethesda Salon in Bethesda, MD, hosted a New York City-style runway show on November 11 called Hair & Now to demonstrate how hairstyles from past eras influence many of the looks created today, as well as to support N Street Village, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., that offers services and an empowering community for homeless and low-income women. The show exhibited more than 40 hair looks from various iconic epochs, starting with the roaring ’20s up to the 21st century, created by Bella Bethesda’s team of stylists. Redken artist and show choreographer Brent Borreson assisted with hair demonstrations at the event, which featured a slew of models strutting down the catwalk showing off ’dos like the sleek flapper crops from the 1920s; pin-up styles from the ’40s; loose, long waves of the ’60s; and Mohawks from the ’80s.

All proceeds from the show went directly to N Street Village to support its programs. To learn more about the organization or about Bella Bethesda Salon, please visit and
