Organic Salons Care About More Than Just Hair and Beauty
Some of the most talented professional hairdressers from around the country team up to build self-esteem of mothers experiencing a transitional period in their lives - giving them a boost in confidence necessary to re-enter the challenging workforce.
June 9, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Palm Harbor, FL - June 10, 2010 - Organic Salon Systems, the leading provider of non-diverted professional natural salon products, is sponsoring an advanced professional development seminar on Sunday June 13, 2010 where 20 salons from around the country are attending to sharpen their skills on (1) hair color practice and theory; (2) the use of more natural, gentler, healthier, and organic products; and (3) client health concerns when using professional salon products.
Rather than using hair models for the hands-on demonstrations, Organic Salon Systems teamed up with Alpha House, an exceptional non-profit organization that provides shelter and counseling to pregnant women, victims of domestic violence, and women going through a pregnancy of crisis to identify women who where facing a unique set of circumstances where experiences aimed at providing a boost of confidence may assist their successful re-entry into the job market. Through this unique Organic Salon Systems professional development event, these women will be provided with a comprehensive beauty consultation benefiting by the hundreds-of-years of accumulated salon experience that will be represented by the attendees and staff, a professional hair and makeup makeover, and professional insight into their resumes as well as interviewing tips and coaching. Additionally, each women will be provided with a care package designed to provide them with the products and tools necessary to maintain their new professional look.
Matthew Pinto, Technical Director and Head of Education for Organic Salon Systems said "A primary goal of our education is demonstrating to hairdressers that there are much more natural high-performance alternatives to traditional ammonia-based hair color. We are fortunate to be able to evangelize our product line, of which we feel so passionate about, while enhancing the self-esteem of women working diligently to build a stable and meaningful life for them and their new child".
Jennifer Stracick, Executive Director of Alpha House added "Businesses like Organic Salon Systems represent a trend of important contributors to many causes throughout countless charitable and non-profit endeavors where the actual services and products are contributed in an engaging and meaningful way which is supportive of the charities overall mission".
Scott Mitchell, chief executive office of Organic Salon Systems, said "Alpha House is an exceptionally run charity with a worthwhile cause. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with their professional and caring staff and we look forward to opportunities to collaborate and provide support in the future. It is always a truly inspiring experience when groups of people, who are truly passionate about what they do, come together and work towards a primary goal. I hope we will continue to see the trend of local businesses working closely with local charities as they realize that you can do "good" in your community and still do well in business."
