Time for a change: North Bend’s Destiny by Design salon brings makeover reveal to block party

Kelly was ready for a big change. With her baby grasping for her long, curly blonde hair, the new mom decided she was ready for a short, dramatic cut.
“She surprised me,” said her hairstylist, Suzanne Peterson. “She’s a very beautiful woman.” Peterson already knows she can pull off the cool new cut.
Kelly is one of a half-dozen locals, mostly women but also a few men and kids, taking part in Destiny by Design Salon’s Makeover Reveal, planned for 7:15 p.m. Saturday on the Community Stage.
The reveal, which shows the results of dramatic makeovers by the Destiny by Design staff, is part of a promotion benefiting the Mount Si Food Bank that includes a calendar to be released this autumn. North Bend photographer Mary Miller is documenting the transformation, and more makeovers may follow for the Festival at Mount Si.
The models were considering changes, but in several cases, it took a good cause to convince them to make the big step, said Sherry Saucedo, owner of Destiny by Design.
“They just needed our push to do it,” Saucedo said.
Her staff are doing haircuts, colors, makeup and waxing. A merchant donated clothing for the makeovers.
For the stylists, the makeover gives a chance to explore their creativity and showcase skills.
Saucedo has operated Destiny by Design for 19 years. She loves her line of work. The beauty industry is cyclical but ever-changing. Today, she finds the styles of the 1980s are coming back.
• Destiny by Design Salon is located at 249 Main Ave. South, North Bend.
