After years of robust growth in its award-winning wedding business, The Homestead will open its first full-service salon this season in The Village, serving men, women and children, but with a special focus on the needs of brides and bridal parties. In keeping with the resort’s tradition of involving its seasonal and local neighbors in new developments, The Homestead is inviting the community to help in naming the new facility.
The salon will offer cuts, color, and nail services, and will specialize in styling services for the many wedding parties and their guests that visit the resort each summer. In addition to refined and traditional wedding hairstyles like the French twist, The Homestead’s team is also working on an array of more casual, modern options to accommodate brides who prefer a rustic or bohemian look, including several styles that will feature an array of seasonal wildflowers from the top of Bay Mountain woven into the hair. Custom floral styles will also be available to complement the bride’s bouquet.
The Homestead is accepting entries for the salon naming contest from now through June 21, 2011, with semi-finalists being selected from each of three different entry periods of two weeks each. Entrants may submit as many ideas as they like by entering online at www.thehomesteadresort.com/name-the-salon-contest or in person at The Homestead.
The winners will be selected in three rounds of judging by a panel from The Homestead, with each round of judging followed by open voting by the public to select semi-finalists. Voting will close on June 28, 2011, and winners will be announced on July 3, 2011, at a reception hosted by The Homestead for all of the semi-finalists in the last round.
Seven different prize packages will be awarded to over one hundred winners, with an approximate retail value of over $15,069 in total prizes being awarded. The Grand Prize winner will receive a deluxe package for eight people, including lunch for the entire group at Cavanaugh’s Deli, dinner at Nonna’s, eight one-month memberships to New Leaf Health & Fitness Center, and a day of beauty at the new salon including three treatments for each guest.
