Raising Awareness for Honey Bees

Raising Awareness for Honey Bees

Tangles Salon in Burke holds party for National Honey Bee Day.

Tangles Hair Salon and Spa of Burke held a beehive party last Saturday, Aug. 17, in honor of National Honey Bee Day at the store in the Burke Commons shopping center next to Walmart.

About 50 people were treated to complimentary beauty treatments like beehive updos, paraffin wax treatments and yellow mini-manicures. Resembling honeybees themselves, the stylists and guests wore black and yellow outfits with matching nail polish, eye shadow and bee-inspired jewelry.

“Eighty percent of pollination is done by the bees,” said Millie Singh, co-owner of the salon. “Honey is not the only thing we get from the bees.”

“Colony Collapse Disorder is a real, major problem,” Singh’s daughter Ashley Thomas said. “I think it’s wonderful that Tangles Salon is helping to raise awareness with style.”
