FOLEY, AL (WALA) -

Thirty-four Baldwin County school girls got star treatment today. It's all thanks to a local mom who wanted to "Pay It Forward."  

As Lenise Ligon told you on FOX10 News Friday, Hayley Milstead of Foley is a stay at home mom with a big heart. She opened her door to pamper local girls; to do their nails and hair, and give them a stress-free time before school starts on Monday. 

Today was the day for all that pampering. And she didn't forget about the moms. There was a Mary Kay specialist to give them facials and make-up tips.

Milstead says it all started with one Facebook post. She says she never thought thirty-four girls would be coming through her door because of it. She says she had to turn away ten girls because there were so many requests. She also says she met new people and neighbors through it too, because they wanted to help after seeing the post.

Not only did Build-a-bear Workshop, Chik-fil-a and Mary Kay chip in, others in her neighborhood provided help and supplies for the day. One lady even made personalized headbands for each of the girls. 

One mom says she is happy to see something so positive. "[They] took their time on a Saturday before school starts and just opened their hearts and their pockets, and so to be able to do this for all these girls, I think its just incredible."

Milstead's neighbor volunteered to help and they hadn't even met before. She says they are surprised by the turn out. "It got bigger than we thought it would be, we thought we would only have ten girls and now its thirty something, it's amazing."

When we say these girls were pampered we mean it. Each girl walked away today with a goodie bag full of treats, nails, hair, and make up done, a Build-a-bear, and a smile on her face. And it didn't cost parents a single penny. 

FOX10 News Reporter Alexa Knowles has more from girls who had a day of glam and parents who were just as excited, tonight at 9:00.
