Cosmetology hosted a princess party fundraiser April 27 for kids of all ages.

“We were inspired to make this our fundraiser because [cosmetology teacher Nichole Sanchez and I] personally have never seen something done like this in Lampasas before,” cosmetology teacher Megan Caddies said. “We wanted something that would tie into cosmetology somehow but also make it fun for the community and our students.”

The fee was $35 pre-registration or $40 at the door. With the money earned, cosmetology hopes to take the students to a hair show in Houston or San Antonio next school year.

“I want to say there were 85 kids or over,” freshman Isabell McGinnis said. “There were definitely a lot of kids. I know there were 35 kids who signed up beforehand, and the rest were walk-ins.”

Intro to cosmetology students walked and directed the children to the cosmetology classroom. Cosmetology 1 and cosmetology 2 students did hair, makeup and nails, and some of the other cosmetology students were dressed as Disney princesses.

“I was Anna from Frozen,” sophomore Samantha Sturgeon said. “I was offered the role after another girl in cosmetology signed up to be Elsa. They wanted the sisters together.”

At the party, the kids started with crafts. There were also lines to get a makeover from one of the princesses. After the crafts and makeovers, there were drinks and snacks for everyone to enjoy.

“I really enjoyed eating,” McGinnis said. ”There were cupcakes and cookies at one point that kind of vanished after a while. Then, there was sweet tea and apple juice.”

Making the decorations took two weeks between Sanchez, Caddies and students, and it took a week to transform the classroom. They made two castles and other props for photo backdrops.

“Our students worked so hard before and during the princess party and they all said that seeing those little princesses’ faces light up at anything they did was worth all the prep,” Caddies said. “The Lampasas community really showed up and supported us and we can not thank everyone that came enough!”
