HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — A med spa owner is teaming up with a trans-owned tattoo and artist collective to gift gender-affirming services during Pride Month.
Sage & Vine Aesthetics owner, Rana Hamadani, highlighted why gender-affirming care is so important to her.
“It’s really a service that makes you feel more like yourself and in your own skin,” Hamadani explained. “It could mean that you’re transitioning, and you want less facial hair, bigger brows, or more blushed lips. It really makes you feel more like yourself and better in your own skin.”
The giveaways include a laser hair removal package valued up to $650, and a gender-affirming permanent makeup treatment valued up to $650.
“We know how much of an impact these services can have and allow for confidence and validation of feeling more at home in your own skin,” Hamadani noted. “It’s important to us that you get these treatments in safe places that want you to feel your best.”
For the entire month of June, all proceeds from colored lashes will be donated to Side by Side VA, an organization dedicated to creating supportive communities where Virginia’s LGBTQ+ youth.
Guests can choose from the following lash colors: Purple, Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red and White.
