Submit Your Inspiring or Funny Salon Story for a Good Cause

After surviving thyroid cancer and supporting his wife through a breast cancer battle, Atlanta salon professional Jackie Yates became determined to raise money for cancer research. Owner of the Jackie Yates Salon for 34 years before recently selling his business, Yates also knew that the salon industry had lots of great stories to share. From laughter to tears to motivation and inspiration, these stories could bring so much to so many if they had the proper vehicle, he felt.

 

Yates wanted to combine his fundraising goal with his idea for sharing salon stories with readers everywhere. He is now putting together his first book in a projected three-book series and soliciting your stories for this book, Shampoo You: A Book of Legendary Stories that are Curing Cancer. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the American Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT).

 

Shampoo You is a compilation of stories from the beauty industry and we need you,” Yates writes in an open letter to the industry. “We have all been touched by cancer—losing family, friends and colleagues.” Yates asks for “funny stories that can happen only in the salon, on the road or on stage, or heartfelt stories telling how lives have been changed by what we do every day.” 

 

There are three ways to contribute your story to this project:

  1. Join the Facebook closed group, “Shampoo You, A Book of Legendary Stories that are Curing Cancer”
  2. Email Yates at [email protected] 
  3. Leave your story in a recorded voice message by calling 678-592-0976.

Check back with Healthy Hairdresser in the coming weeks as we share some of the stories that Yates has been receiving.

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.

by Alison Alhamed

Besides trying to impress the owner, it’s important to choose a salon that has a culture that aligns with who you are. Often, we spend more time at work than at home, so it’s important you choose a “work home” where you feel comfortable, where you feel supported, and where you feel like you have opportunity to grow and learn. These questions will arm you with answers to help make your decision.
