Atelier 22 partners with Dress for Success Mercer County

Local Jersey Shore Salon and Spa Atelier 22 Partners with Dress for Success Mercer County to Help Women in Need

Atelier 22 USA, a Belmar-NJ salon and spa has teamed up with Dress for Success Mercer County, a global non-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career training, to offer free hair styling and spa services, as well as encourage donations of business professional attire.

In addition to providing business professional attire for women in need who are attending job interviews, Dress for Success runs the Going Places Network, a multi-week program helping unemployed or under-employed women gain professional skills. Atelier 22 will meet the graduates of the Dress for Success Mercer County this Summer and provide hair styling and spa services, as well as hair care tutorials to help once they get their new jobs.

“Atelier 22 started as a dream when I was about 15 years old. Being raised by grandparents who gave to everyone in need without having much I want to continue their legacy. My grandfather being a man who couldn't go near a mirror without stopping and my grandmothers' birthday being 2/22/22, this is an extension of the home I grew up in. Where beauty, love and paying forward was a priority.” Katherine H. Ostergaard, co-owner of Atelier 22.

Leading up to the Going Places Network’s cohort graduation, Atelier 22 is encouraging salon clients to donate business professional attire that is in good condition - items that would still be worn if they fit. Please note that jewelry and accessories are in high demand. Donations may be dropped off at the salon located at 1601 Route 71, Suite 1, Belmar, NJ 07719. Clients who make a garment donation will receive 10% off one salon session.

The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
