Posted on by webmaster in Seasons Comments Off on Live Your Life, Love Your Hair and Take Good Care of You

KS Monthly Blog Header-Octoberv2Live Your Life, Love Your Hair and Take Good Care of You is our motto for the month and we are breaking it down to remind you to Be inspired, Be Involved and BeYoutiful!

Live Your Life

Grammy Award-winning recording artist Jill Scott sings live your life like it’s golden in the chart-topping hit and we couldn’t agree more.

The message really hit home when we attended the third annual Pink Strydes Affair, a fashion show and fundraiser to support local breast cancer patients and survivors. We were inspired through cheers and tears for our courageous friends and neighbors determined to make the most of every moment.

Love Your Hair

We’re happy to announce Natural Hair Tuesdays for our natural hair divas. Head on over to our Specials Page to check out services with savings up to $50.00.

Take Good Care of You

Every year this month, our normally sunny South Florida skies are painted in shades of purple and pink to observe two very important causes: Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We take this opportunity to tell you about two local organizations in our area that provide help and hope. If you need them or would like to support them, reach out to them.

FRCWC_3Colorlogotag

 

The Florida Resource Center for Women and Children, based in Riviera Beach, FL, is an advocate for those affected by or at risk of domestic violence. Visit www.frcwc.org to learn more.

Karline’s Salon Rocks the Pink Carpet

Posted on by webmaster in Fashion, KS Commentary Leave a comment

Karline Ricketts and Vanessa Battle-Robinson

Over the weekend, we were tickled pink to support fellow stylists of Salon Voila in its first ever Pink Strydes Affair, a fashion show and fundraiser for breast cancer awareness.

This inaugural event, held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center and mc-ed by comedienne and actress Coco Brown (Jennifer in Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcom For Better or Worse), celebrated local breast cancer survivors and featured fashions from Ashley Stewart, Pink Me Life, The House of Lirasaintt and M-2.

Karline’s is proud to say that a bit of hair competition is good, but when it comes to the health of our community, we’re in this fight together. We congratulate Vanessa Battle- Robinson (pictured right in the photo with Karline Ricketts) , Salon Voila’s owner and breast cancer survivor.

 

                                

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month caps another year of raising awareness, we recommend the following links to keep those who care involved and those who need support engaged.

American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Click here to make a pledge to support participants in the 10/27/12 walk beginning at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre in Boca Raton.

This is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about steps we can take to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with breast cancer research, information and services, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Each step you take is personal, and together we can help turn this walk into a victory lap!

American Cancer Society's Look Good Feel Better

This program in West Palm Beach teaches women in active cancer treatment ways to deal with the appearance-related side effects of treatment. This program is offered jointly by the American Cancer Society, Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association. Click here for the program schedule.
