This August we are collecting back to school supplies and cash donations to purchase these items for kids that desperately need them. We partnered with The Rock Ministries in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Kensington to help hand these supplies out directly to the kids who need them most. We want to use the resources that we have to create a positive impact on the community around us because it’s all about LOVE :>
We partnered again this year with an amazing organization called The Well in upper Bucks County. Their mission is to end human trafficking and specifically what’s happening right in Bucks County. Check out their vision here https://worthwhilewear.org/pages/about-us and shop at their great consignment shop (you can even shop online!!!) to support them financially. We contributed goodie bags and hair and makeup services for a special event and were able to make a small impact on them as they left a huge impact on us!
In our December newsletter, Love Letters, you’ll see a few of the ways we are giving back to the community as well as fun events, salon anniversaries and our holiday schedule. Happy Holidays!
For the second year in a row we supported Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission in Philadelphia through our retail sales during the month of November. We were able to sponsor 151 Thanksgiving Day meals this year for the homeless population in Philly and are so grateful for the opportunity as well as the support of our generous clients.
On December 1st we hosted our first blowout benefit to raise money for a dear friend and client, Maria, who was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a great success and although the money raised will help her family during this tough time it was really the time spent together and the support we could offer that really made it a special event. Thank you to all who attended and donated!
In our November newsletter, Love Letters, you’ll meet our new team members and learn about upcoming events and opportunities to get involved with the community. November reminds us to be thankful for all that we have and to offer love and hope to all those around us no matter how small or large a contribution we can all make a difference together!

For those of us that are not color professionals, fear not! Here are a few definitions that will help you understand some of the popular color services offered in salons today. It’s all about technique and the finished end result you desire. Having a consultation with your colorist prior to any color ever touching your head is absolutely essential. Photos always help but knowing some lingo will go a long way as well!
Balayage – is a technique
Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.
Ombré – is a style
The hair world borrowed the term ‘Ombre‘ from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Ombre hair color is generally darker at the roots through the mid-shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends.
Babylights – is a style
Babylights are delicate highlights created using a very fine hair color technique to mimic the subtle, dimensional hair color seen on children’s hair. “My clients often bring in photos of their children for inspiration, asking me to make their color look that fresh and natural.
Hair Melting – is a technique
“Melting is a technique that blends the highlights with the base color of the hair so you don’t have any harsh lines,” Matrix StyleLink stylist George Papanikolas told BuzzFeed. “The difference between this and regular highlights is that you use multiple shades to create the ‘melted‘ effect.”

Here is a link so some more fall styles you may enjoy checking out this season but remember what works for someone else may not work for you and vice versa. Make sure you use a trusted color professional – no good color ever comes out of a box! 🙂
