Little princesses roamed the streets of Fernie on Saturday, showing off their glitter tattoos, polished nails and styled hair.

During their first annual Princess Party, Lysh Hair Salon raised $1,410.14 for Friends for Friends — a local charity that supports people in the community battling cancer.

Over 100 children came into the salon to get a full princess makeover, while enjoying Caked, By Ashley cupcakes and juice boxes — fine delicacies for these little princesses.

“It was amazing,” owner Sarah LeNeveu said.

“It was a huge success, we will definitely be doing it again.”

And the community came together to make the event happen, LeNeveu said.

The Fernie Printing Company, The Free Press, Fernie Fix, the Drive and B101 advertised for the special day and Sarah Livingston from the Fernie Medical Spa, Jessica Hikida from Grow, Nadine Cunningham, Dawn Ewings and Louise Robinson all donated their time to make sure the little royals shined.

“I would like to make a public thank-you to everybody that came,” LeNeveu said.

“We all enjoyed every minute of it.”

And although the girls looked beautiful before and after the event, LeNeveu said next year she plans on inviting everyone, hairstylists and children alike, to dress up like a princess for the day.
