Every year, our team chooses local organizations or communities in need within Hampton Roads that we can support. While hair is our passion, we believe in giving back to the community that supports our ability to do what we love.
This year, we will be participating in Paint 757 Purple with Samaritan House. This incredible organization works in our own backyard to support victims of abuse, violence, homelessness, and human trafficking in amazing ways. Paint 757 Purple is their annual initiative to raise money so that they can continue providing amazing services to those who need it most. With a focus on self-empowerment and growth towards self-sufficency, Samaritan House truly provides resources to individuals in need that will allow them to get back on track in their lives.
From Tuesday, October 23 to Saturday, October 27th, we will have Purple Clip-In Extensions available for purchase. All proceeds from your purchase will be donated to Samaritan House. Try on a new color without commitment and support an amazing local organization in our community all at the same time! We will also accept monetary donations for those who wish to support this event.
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, or human trafficking dangers and is in need of assistance, please contact Samaritan House.
Education is KEY
We spent our day off practicing Balayage techniques with Steve Waldman from Matrix! This popular color service takes technique, time, and focus, so we wanted to ensure we were at the top of our game. Steve helped our team solidify their Balayage techniques so that we’re offering only the best color services to our clients.
Practice makes perfect, and now we’re ready to create some highlighting perfection on your locks! Book a Balayage and we’ll show you all that we learned!
Our stylists will be meeting with the education team from Samaritan House to talk about our responsibility to remain educated on how we, as stylists, can play a role in identifying signs and helping victims of domestic violence.
Because the salon chair is often a place of refuge, vulnerability, and our clients gift us with their trust, we feel it is important that should a concern ever arise regarding the health, safety, and wellness of a guest in our salon, our team is prepared to act in a responsible manner that serves in the best interest of all parties involved.
We look forward to learning more about Samaritan House and how we will plan to support them for our 2018 Fall Fundraiser in their annual effort, Paint 757 Purple.
Our Deva-stylists worked with our local DevaCurl educator, Nicole, to hone their skills on creating custom product cocktails based on unique curl needs, and practiced the important steps of a No Poo Transformation to maximize curl definition.
It can be easy to fall into routines when performing similar services each day, so it's important for our team that we continuously go back to basics and practice being at the top of our hair game!
