Last Friday, in the midst of Dominicana Moda in Santo Domingo, the community ladies also celebrated a very glamorous and traditional monthly event this time at Amadeus Beauty Center in the Marina. This month’s Café de la Leche combined beauty and philanthropy for a great cause, continuing to provide the Hogar del Niño’s Crib Room with the necessary nutrition it needs for over two-hundred babies.
The popular gathering also celebrated Amadeus Beauty Center’s reopening. Owner Estela Martínez hosted the event and invited guests to get to know the new layout, installations, and decoration. Tall cocktail tables were set up outside so that everyone could also enjoy the cool breeze from the ocean and sample delicious cocktails, wine, and hors d’oeuvres. After a busy week, it was the perfect way to start the weekend!
Amadeus Beauty Center opened its first storefront almost 23 years ago and has since grown into three centers, including the one in the Marina for over 10 years. Now in a bigger locale, they offer the same great quality with added services. Among their offerings, you can be sure they do— cuts, relaxers, perms, colors & highlights, extensions, and hair waving; manicures & pedicures, gel, acrylic, and paraffin; as well as facials, microdermabrasion, massages, and waxing.
The new center is specially designed for you to enjoy the space with them and disconnect from the day’s stress and worries. The event held many surprises in store for attendees. A raffle was made where many lucky ladies won beauty products and services like massages with volcanic stones! They also handed out perfume and hair product samples— some of which we’re dying to go back and purchase the full size.
Congratulations Estela on Amadeus Beauty Center’s new look; we wish you the best of luck in this new location! For all you Casa ladies, they’re open everyday including Sundays and holidays from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Café de la Leche events always support a wonderful cause and invite you to have a lot of fun in the process. If you missed it last week, view more photos in the gallery below, taken by Laura Perdomo. Stay tuned for the announcement of the next event for the Hogar del Niño!
