"We are thrilled to work with Ashley on behalf of this incredibly important cause," says Brian Thomas, owner of Nectar Skin Bar.  "With our full staff of top-notch aestheticians, wide range of service offerings and convenient location, we are confident that we can help Ashley reach her $5,000 goal."

Ashley, a Nectar Skin Bar client since its opening in July of 2011, conceived of the fundraising plan while getting a pedicure at Nectar.

"Combining one of my favorite causes with my favorite spa is just a perfect marriage in my book," she added.

Nectar Skin Bar is located at 1633 Wisconsin Avenue. To book your appointment to benefit Fashion for Paws, please call Nectar Skin Bar at 202.333.4332 or IPSA for Hair at 202.338.4100 and use code ATF4P when booking.
