Along with Aveda, we dedicated the entire month of April to raising awareness and funds for organizations near to our hearts in honor of Earth Month. By partnering with several local businesses and the support of our amazing clients and staff, we raised over $17,000 for The Gulf Restoration Network and Global Greengrants Fund.
Here are some of the ways that we celebrated Earth Month this year:
We kicked off our Earth Month celebration with our annual Kid's Cut-A-Thon! This event is always so much fun for us and our clients. We spent the morning getting the salon ready for the little ones with a bake sale, face painting, hair chalk and art activities. It is by-far one of our favorite events that we host each year.
Our next event was held at our Highland Village location. We hosted a Girls Night Out where we pampered our guests with Botanical Hair Therapy Treatments, Blowouts and Makeup Applications.
Fitness for a Cause - We partnered with local fitness studios - Zyn22 in Dallas, Pure Barre in Allen & Coppell and CycleBar in Flower Mound. They were all gracious enough to host classes to raise funds for The Gulf Restoration Network for our Earth Month campaign. We invited our clients and our staff to take the classes with us and had a great time raising funds while getting fit!
We were selected to participate in Aveda's Catwalk for Water this year. The event was held at DEC on Dragon and was in collaboration with Wade College of Design. We were partnered with design students who were tasked with making garments out of recycled Aveda materials. We styled three hair and makeup looks to go along with their wardrobes. One of our designers, Sara Schmidt won 'Best Garment' and our stylist-to-be, Duc Nguyen won for 'Best Hair & Makeup'!
It was a very successful Earth Month and we cannot say 'Thank You' enough to those that contributed. We have already begun planning next year's Earth Month events. Stay tuned to see how you can get involved in this amazing campaign. Click here to learn more about Aveda Earth Month.
