Hair and Makeup for Gettysburg 150th Anniversary Ceremony
Out of all the hair and beauty salons in Gettysburg, York, Harrisburg and Chambersburg, Grace Kelly Salon was selected as the exclusive hair stylist and makeup provider for the gala event: “Gettysburg: A New Birth of Freedom” Commemorative Ceremony. Well prior to the ceremony on June 30, 2013, the Gettysburg Foundation and Empire Entertainment had a challenging task to find a hair and beauty salon in the Gettysburg, York, and Chambersburg area that could make the stars and historians look their best. They chose our salon, because of our reputation and breath of services. We provided all the hair styling and makeup for all of the more then twenty entertainers, actors and prominent historians that performed on the outdoor stage near Meade’s Headquarters on the Gettysburg Battlefield.
The keynote speaker was Doris Kearns Goodwin, a historian and the award winning author of Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, which was the inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s movie Lincoln. The entertainment highlight of the ceremony was country music star Trace Adkins singing the National Anthem backed by the United States Military Academy’s West Point Band.
Other speakers included:
- Charlie Gibson, former host of Good Morning America and anchor of World News;
- Joanne Hanley, President 0f the Gettysburg Foundation;
- Jon Jarvis, Director of the US National Park Services;
- Bob Kirby, Superintendent of the Gettysburg National Military Park; and
- Plus, more than 13 actors.
Grace Kelly Salon stylists and makeup artists, included Kelly Kaiser, Jen Snyder, Tiffany Tressler, and Natalie Foust.
They provided the initial hair and makeup, in addition to, working backstage for touch-ups during event. Owner, Kelly Kaiser noted, “we were honored to be selected and to participate in the Gettysburg 150th Anniversary ceremony promoting our great town. It was a great experience and a privilege to meet and work with the stars and famous people.”

What Are NovaLash Lash Extensions?
NovaLash Lash Extensions are a glamorous new way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes, and are a practical, convenient and beautiful alternative to the daily use of mascara. Unlike decades-old, traditional false lashes, lash extensions are the first innovation in lash lengthening that can be worn daily, without nightly removal. Because each tapered, synthetic lash is bonded to a single natural lash, the final result is of effortless glamour and difficult to detect even close up.
We are thrilled to welcome Senior Stylist, Jen, to the Grace Kelly Team!

Adding Color to Your Life
When deciding on hair color, makeup shades, and clothing the concept of knowing “your skin tone” will inevitably come up. There are a few simple ways to distinguish your skin’s tone and allow you to make better choices when adding color to your life!!
1) The Basics: Warm tone individuals tend to look vibrant in earthy colors. (Think the colors of fall!) Cool toned individuals look better in jewel tones and colors that are blue-based.
2) Try the Vein Test: In natural light make a fist and examine the veins on your inner wrist. Are they mainly blue? That’s a sign of a cool tone! If they’re green, you’re probably warm toned.
3) Silver/Gold Test: Find a piece of gold and silver fabric. Again in natural light hold each piece next to your face. Which makes you look fresh and alive? If it’s silver, you’re most likely cool toned. Gold? You’re probably warm toned.
4) Genetics Test: Consider your natural hair color & eye color .
