With school starting today in Fauquier County, we were nostalgic about the Salon Emage Style Team’s last visit to school in March of this year. Your Salon Emage Style Team did hair and makeup for Auburn Middle School’s production of Leader of The Pack – The Ellie Greenwich Musical. It was a blast working with all these talented kids (and there a BUNCH of them!).

Actress and Singer pictured is Melanee’s daughter Olivia.

You know Salon Emage but do you know Melanee Montalvo, owner of Salon Emage Day Spa. Melanee has been

Salon Emage Day Spa Owner, Melanee Montalvo

working her magic on hair for over 25 years and has owned Salon Emage Day Spa since 2000.

Melanee has not only worked with celebrity hairstylist Alexandre de Paris but she also has quite the background of celebrity clients including the actress Salma Hayek, Cal Thomas syndicated columnist and author, Courtney Robinson Reporter WJLA/News Channel 8, and beloved Fauquier author Susan McCorkindale. Melanee’s achievements do not stop at celebrity clients as she has also done quite a bit of work for television and fashion shows; one of her latest achievements includes styling hair for the Union of Angels commercial. She has also styled hair for an editorial photo shoot for Glamour magazine, Susan McCorkindale’s book promotional video, and numerous runway including: Trouvials Vintage Fashion Show at Twilight Polo, Twilight Polo’s Opening Night “Must Haves” Fashion Shows, and the American Cancer Society’s Silhouettes of Spring Fashion Shows.

When Melanne is not hard at work making sure everyone has fabulous hair, she and her salon are busy giving back to the community. Two organizations they make sure to give to each year are the Fauquier SPCA and the American Cancer Society. There is a lot that can be said about the way the salon gives back. Melanee does not just write a check to a charitable group, she has the salon create events which get the whole community involved. Melanee decided to start a Pooch Shampoo at Salon Emage Day Spa which is held each August. Community members bring their dogs to be washed by salon stylists; the money raised benefits the Fauquier SPCA. In October, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, the salon has Pink Power Parties to give client’s pink extensions with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. The salon also hosts Bras for a Cause asking community members to create bras which are then voted on by the public. This year alone over $2000 was raised in the month of October by Salon Emage Day Spa through Pink Hair for Hope, Shop for a Cure and Bras for a Cause. Through the year, Melanee shows her care and

concern for the community she grew up in by supporting a variety of causes.

Melanne’s achievements stop here, but this blog does! Call the salon to make an appointment with Melanee and let her make your hair look like a celebrity’s. Salon Emage Day Spa is located at 51 East Lee Street, Warrenton, Virginia by phone at 540.341.4052 and on the web at www.salonemage.com.

Stylist & Nail Tech, Sam Perry

By: Guest Blogger Brittany Cooper

Do temperatures in the 90’s make you dream of the leaves turning and beautiful Fall sweaters. It may be hard to envision Fall is just around the corner but in just a couple short weeks teachers and students will be returning to their desks.

You may have taken some time to go back to school shopping for the kids and hopefully even for yourself. However, over here at Salon Emage Day Spa we want to make sure that you don’t forget about your hair. Now is the perfect time to come and get a new Fall style or just shape up your existing style. It is also the perfect time to switch those finger and toe nails over to some of OPI’s new colors.

Need another push to take some time for yourself! Until September 17, we will give you 25% off a service of $35 or more with Sam Perry our stylists and nail tech if you are a student or teacher. Just present your student or teacher ID.

Don’t be left out in heat of summer for this, call today, 540.341.4052.
