    EL CENTRO — Escaping an abusive relationship takes courage, but then the even harder work of recovery and reinventing oneself begins.

    Lourdes “Lulu” Castro, owner of Styles & Smiles salon in El Centro, has been trying to do her small part in helping women on that journey for the past nine years or so. Every year before Mother’s Day, she opens her shop outside of regular business hours, and she and other cosmetologists at the salon volunteer their time to provide free makeovers to women currently staying at one of the three shelters operated by WomanHaven, A Center for Family Solutions, in Imperial Valley.
