Military spouses enjoyed a day of relaxation and pampering on Thursday, thanks to a Poway beauty school.
Spouses got haircuts, manicures, rejuvenating light sessions and more.
"As a spouse and a family readiness officer, I just see a real need to stop and feel pampered and just emotionally say, 'OK, this is about me,' " said Brooke Spitzer, who works for family readiness at Miramar.
The spa is also kicking off its scholarship program -- up to $5,000 for each new student.
