A Makeover for some special friends...

Sharing an extra special #RedBloomInRealLife story today…

Meet Darlene and Marloes. They met on a Facebook group, RYWN: A Rethink Breast Cancer community for young women. Darlene was looking for a stylist recommendation and Marloes suggested our stylist, Genna. They both became RedBloom guests and grew an increasingly strong friendship, as together they fought their battle with breast cancer

Inspired by their story and connection, we wanted to do something to help these ladies feel extra confident and beautiful. So, a couple of weeks ago we gave them a makeover, surprised them with their new looks and did a fun photoshoot

We’re so happy that in a small way we could be a part of their story and would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this possible!

Pinktober Essentials

In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we partnered with the local boutique, Something 2 Wear to put together #PinktoberEssentials. This one is extra special to us because Something 2 Wear has been big supporters of the annual Fashion with Compassion, in support of Breast Cancer Supportive care. They have styled, volunteered and sponsor this amazing event here in Calgary. The last few years we have also been lucky to be a part of this event volunteering our time to do the hair. This year, over $120,000 was raised!! How amazing is that!? So Naturally, they were a perfect partner for our RedBloom Essentials this month!

Not only are these some of our fav pink products, 1 of them supports the cause!

See details below...
