After Gabrielle Met Tristan at The Sporting Club at The Bellevue...

Gabrielle knew she would love to go on a date with him. She just kept picturing that infectious smile, feeling herself smile as she thought about Tristan. She knew if he asked her out, she would have to look her best. Gab really wanted the chance to get to know him, to know everything about him, and of course, to look good when she did.

As Gab anxiously awaited a call, a text, anything, she heard a familiar and welcoming noise.

She looked down at her phone and was thrilled to see that Tristan, that handsome stranger she could not get out of her mind, was calling. He was calling to ask her out. It was official. Time to look her best for a very special meeting. Nervous was only one of the adjectives that described her feelings at that very moment...

Gab immediately began to panic and reflect on her past relationships, wondering if Tristan could be The One.

Gab happily accepted Tristans invitation to have a first date at The Bellevue. As a fashion consultant at Nicole Miller, it was only fitting that she go into work and pick out a smart, sophisticated outfit! Of course, she also had to get some advice from none other than the style savvy Mary Dougherty, owner of Nicole Miller. Mary reminisced with Gabrielle about meeting her own husband while she was traveling from Maine many years ago. It was so exciting that Marys own casual encounter resulted in 25 years of marriage and three sons.

Would this chance encounter lead Gab to something as amazing? With an outfit and accessories selected, Mary turned and looked at Gabrielle and said, You have got the outfit, now go get beautified! She ordered Gab to see Carlos, stylist of the stars at The Bellevue Salon & Spa, to have him style her hair and makeup to be ready for her date.

Without any hesitation, away Gab went!

Gabrielle made her way to the lower level of The Bellevue and entered the Salon & Spa. The Bellevue Salon & Spa provides expert hair, makeup, and nail services so Gab knew she was in good hands with Carlos. She explained that she was going on a first date with a guy who she had met at The sporting Club, secretly hoping Carlos would know exactly what to do. To her relief, Carlos replied, say no more, and began working his magic.

He performed his special treatment, styling Gabrielle with a blow-dry and curling finish. Her long, gorgeous locks were ready to blow Tristan away! Carlos finally turned Gabrielle around in his chair so she could get a first look at herself. She smiled and nodded as she knew she was ready for her date. Gab thanked Carlos and left the salon, anticipation building for the date ahead....
