Dancers – especially those who are part of professional troupe such as the award-winning Ailey II – are a dedicated and talented crew. They live, breathe and sleep dance whether auditioning or on tour.
It’s tough work (as any Dance Moms’ fan will attest) and only a handful will rise to that upper echelon. Most of us may never be able to leap, spin or soar like an Ailey dancer, but we can all learn from their commitment to health, wellness and beauty. These dancers train hard, eat healthy and are never afraid to show a little some skin.
That’s why Beauty in the Bag went behind the scenes with two of the stars of the Ailey II company — Samantha Barriento and Courtney Celeste Spe

I’ll admit it: I’m addicted to changing my hair color. Ever since I first put blonde streaks in during my middle school years, I have been every color under the natural born sun. I’ve been various shades of blonde, from sandy to platinum, as well as dark brown, light brown, and even red… and while not every shade has been flattering (yes, the mermaid looks great with red hair, however, this Arielle does not), it is always fun to experiment.
