Take the October Healthy Hairdresser Challenge: Take Care of You!

by Rosanne Ullman | October 3, 2016

Look around the salon and you’ll likely see at least a few shades of pink. Salon professionals helped pioneer and still actively support campaigns to raise funds and awareness about the importance of breast cancer research and early detection. But are you taking the message seriously and heeding it yourself?

October's Healthy Hairdresser Challenge is sponsored by breast cancer survivor Ouidad and her eponymous “curl experts” hair care line.  Salon pros can accept the challenge by going to modernsalon.com/healthy between October 1-31 and pledging that they have either:

  • Performed a breast cancer self-exam
  • Completed or scheduled a mammogram
  • Completed or scheduled another type of health screening appointment

Tips on preventing breast cancer are available at modernsalon.com/healthy.

Ten lucky participants will win a full-size product from Ouidad’s 2016 “Curls for the Cure Foundation” campaign, the Superfruit Renewal Clarifying Cream Shampoo (retail value $26; $2 of each sale donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation). Also, one grand-prize winner will earn a free Ouidad two-day certification training (education value $900; travel and accommodations not included).

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.
