Local Starbucks Barista Gets an ‘Ambush Makeover’ in Old Town Alexandria

 

'Ambush Makeovers' are hitting the streets of Old Town Alexandria. Circe Salon and Spa Owners Richard and Ellen Vlasak were looking for ways to engage local merchants and sneak attack makeovers seemed like the perfect way to do this.

This morning Circe Salon and Spa surprised a local Starbucks barista with their first ever ‘ambush makeover.’ The lucky barista, Shannon Murry, was blindfolded and whisked away to Circe’s salon for an all day pampering and makeover session.

“Richard is very fond of her [Shannon] because she is so nice to him in the morning when he goes in for his coffee. We thought it would be a great idea to surprise her and get her in here for a total makeover,” said Ellen Vlasak.

Kara Allan, professional stylist of Style for Hire, and Glambassador for Glamour Magazine helped picked out shoes, jewelry, and the perfect dress for Day.
