MT. PLEASANT — Dreams came true for many young princesses from around Mt. Pleasant area enjoyed makeovers with Cinderella at Revival Salon and Sanctuary this week.
Disney princess music streamed from speakers outside of Rival as little princesses took steps up the grand stone stairs to enter a world of enchantment.
Donning her most glamorous pink dress, jewelry, and glittery high-heeled shoes, soon-to-be first-grader Ruby DeVaul from Wayland excitedly entered the salon she had previously deemed The Castle.
Ruby was greeted by Revival Salon owner and stylist Gina Burns, stylist Silke Jennings, and Cinderella, who happens to be a mentee at Revival.
Ruby enjoyed her moment with Cinderella as part of her 6th birthday present.
According to Ruby’s mother, she was very excited to return to The Castle after an initial haircut and had been counting down the days until she would return.
Burns knew that she wanted to do princess makeovers from the very beginning plans of opening Revival.
“It looks like a castle, so obviously we needed princesses,” she said.
The princess makeover includes nail painting, a princess hair style, hair gems, makeup (mostly glittery eye shadow), and a crown.
Once Ruby’s transformation was complete, she took a few moments to pose for pictures with Cinderella, and left with plans for a daddy-daughter date.
The young ladies who visited Cinderella wished for a magical moment, and in their hearts the memories will live, because as Cinderella said, “Whatever you wish for, you keep.”
Revival will host additional princess makeovers. The next one features Belle from Beauty and the Beast Aug. 15.
Elsa will make an appearance Sept. 19.
