Salon treats military wives for Mother’s Day

For Mother’s Day Bella Mia Salon, Spa & Boutique honored six mothers whose husbands serve in the military with a Saturday afternoon of free hair styling, make-up, and massage.

Bella Mia owner Linda Hall said she wanted to do something special for the military wives. Those invited either have husbands deployed or will be deploying.

“They have to play that role of mother and father,” she said.

Hall topped off the afternoon with a gift basket and flowers for each, and brought in a professional photographer to take family pictures, or photos to send to the husbands.
