More Than Just A Beauty Pageant, It’s A Fight For Women

” When you see these ladies go out on stage you see courage and self-esteem. I see it as a celebration of women breaking boundaries with self-confidence. To me that is the real beauty behind the pageant.”  -Lurdes Medina, Owner 

PASADENA, Calif. – Being in a beauty pageant is no small feat. A number of female participants showcase their public speaking skills, achievements, community service and talents all while being judged in front of a large audience so that they, too, can be a part of the positive change for female empowerment. In support of these role models and their future endeavors, Pasadena’s Bella Sol The Salon is the official salon sponsor for the 2015 Miss Pasadena and Miss Century City beauty pageant.

Collaborating with T&R Productions, a beauty pageant producer, Bella Sol The Salon secured this sponsorship in honor of sharing the same vision with the production company of highlighting women’s accomplishments. Pageant participants devote themselves to making a positive impact in their community while setting out to achieve their own goals. As a proponent for beauty pageants, the salon is best known for its custom airbrush tanning, having participated as the official airbrush artist for the 2015 Miss Malibu, 2013 Miss California, and 2013 Miss California Teen beauty pageants.

The 2015 Miss Pasadena & Miss Century City beauty pageant will take place on March 29, 2015 at the Universal City Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles at 6 p.m. T&R Productions will give 50% of the event proceeds to Beauties & Athletes Against Bullying to help decrease the alarming rate of child and teen bullying and cyber bullying.

In a period where women are being encouraged to “lean in” and make a difference, Bella Sol The Salon stands firm in elevating the cause by sponsoring and supporting female-driven events like these. Contestants and titleholders alike embrace the opportunity to set the bar high for their peers, establishing a higher standard for the future of women.
