Our Place Society brings back annual beauty day

Beauty Day is taking place on Valentine’s Day

Everyone wants to feel good on Valentine’s Day, and something that could help is to look good.

That’s why Victoria’s Our Place Society is hosting its annual Beauty Day for women living in poverty.

On that day, Our Place brings in volunteer hairdressers, estheticians, cosmetics, costume jewelry, nail polish, hair accessories and cosmetic bags to “deliver a positive experience of every woman’s value and self-worth.”

The event will take place at the Our Place Society at 919 Pandora Ave. Friday from 9 to 11:30 a.m.
