Salon launch/Marie Curie fundraising event this Saturday

A local hairdressing salon will be launching with a difference this Saturday in the Bush, because 15% of their takings as a business will be donated to the cancer charity Marie Curie for their work caring for the terminally ill.

Marie Curie provide nurses who look after people either in hospices or their own homes and sadly I have had cause to see their work at first hand in recent years - they do a fantastic job.

The salon, which is called Young Honeys, is based on the Goldhawk Road near the Green and is all about looking after families. They believe that they have created a new concept in hairdressing that takes the strain away from children’s hairdressing and created an environment that is entertaining convenient and fun for both children and adults. So this is a tie up between a really good cause and an innovative new business idea which having personal experience of trying to take kids to the hairdresssers I can confirm is absolutely needed! It's exactly the sort of investment this area needs and looks like a really special addition to the local community.

A family hair salon specialising in children’s haircare and cuts, a one stop shop for the entire family where everyone will be excited to visit. The Young Honeys founders themselves came up with the idea based on personal experience - having children they say they know how hard it is to find somebody who is patient with children and able to put them at ease because not all children enjoy getting their hair done. Young Honeys offer full adult hairdressing services in the salon, whilst children get their hair done parents can also get their hair done, sit back or relax and have a treatment done in our beauty room carried out by an in house beauty therapist. More details here.

To launch the new salon on Saturday 28th April 2012 they are hosting a charity event in the salon and would like you to come. Skin care regimes, hair styles, beauty treatment demonstrations, nail art, threading and products will be hugely discounted on the day.

Clients on the day will be asked to make a contribution for the mini treatments.

Cupcakes, natural juices, nibbles and face painting will be sold as well on the day together with complimentary wine and a grand raffle at the end hosted by a local well known recording artist Princess Nyah who shot to fame, I am told, with her funky house track "Frontline".

Princess Nyah is also a local business woman with her main office in Shepherds Bush so she is supporting a fellow business.

The salon have been given vouchers from Nandos in shepherds bush to be raffled in aid of the charity and vouchers and samples from other local businesses in the area.This event is this Saturday 28th April 2012 between 1pm and 7pm For more information please contact them on or call Kay on 07535705095

The very best of luck to them. Get yerself down to have a look this Saturday.
