KS Cares – Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County

In this very special holiday post, we’d like to tell you about Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, a funding resource for programs and services that improve the lives of children and their families. Moreover, we’d like to ask you to join us in making the season a little brighter for children served by the organization’s home visiting programs.

Children’s Services Council focuses the majority of its funding on prevention and early intervention services for all Palm Beach County children so they grow up healthy, safe, and strong. More than 89% of Children’s Services Council’s budget goes directly into programs*, which include:

  • WHIN Nurses (Women’s Health Initiative Nurses), which addresses the health and wellness needs of African American women who are either pregnant or have a baby. The program provides nurse home-visiting services in the county’s high-risk zip codes.
  • Nurse Family Partnership, which addresses the health and well-being of low-income first-time parents and their children. The program provides volunteer registered nurses for pregnant women and children up to two years of age.
  • Healthy Beginnings Nurses, which provides a wide range of pre and post-natal and intervention services for pregnant women and mothers of infants in a family’s home.

*Source: Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County 

The impact of these programs is impressive. Here is one of many reasons why they are so important:

On Sunday, December 16, 2018, Karline’s Salon will host a Holiday Open House for clients, vendors, friends, and friends of friends. We’re asking all who attend to bring a gift-wrapped, age-appropriate toy (0 to 5 years) for a child served by the home visiting programs. Of greatest need are:

  • Diapers (Size 2 and Size 3)  
  • Developmental toys with sounds and lights

Be sure to label the age/size on the gift wrapping.

In exchange, donors will receive $5 in Karline’s Salon Bonus Bucks to redeem on a hair care service.  Plus, we’ll contribute a portion of the proceeds from our raffle to a Children’s Services Council program.

Admission is free, but you must RSVP here. 

The last word. Many thanks to Charice Robinson, a loyal Karline’s Salon client and friend. Charice provided us with inspiration and direction for our charitable endeavor. She is the Director of Program Budget for Children’s Services Council, a past president of the West Palm Beach Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a proud Wolverine (University of Michigan), and one of our natural hair divas.  She’s an all-around rock star!

Hair Trend Weigh In: Autumn-Inspired Color

Hair Trend Autumn Inspired Color

Not that it makes a difference to those of us who live in South Florida’s tropical paradise, but the fall season is here, and as the saying goes, life’s too short to have boring hair. Now, let’s go with the flow and mix it up with autumn-inspired color. Here are five color trends for the season. Which one are you willing to rock? Feel free to weigh in on your favorite shade at the end of this post.

Gilded Strawyberry Tones

This trend uses a subtle highlight to play up the warmer gold, strawberry blonde, or red-ish base, whether natural or done with dye or gloss.

A copper color can be tricky because you don’t want your highlight to read brassy, but when you err on the side of gold, with just a touch of red undertones, the result is the perfect rich fall shade that’ll look incredible at golden hour.

See how golden highlights make curls look vivacious, while a transitional amber-tinged tone keeps it from looking overdone? The result is fresh and modern, but still subtle.

Dusty Blonde

This summer has been all about bright, glossy tones — which aren’t going anywhere — but the fall is the perfect time to take your color a little cooler, more muted, and less Barbie Blonde.

Hair Trend Weigh In: Autumn-Inspired Color

 

Balayage is a great technique for mixing a cool, dusty blonde highlight into long hair, because it looks even radder when your dark roots grow in.

Want to really take it to the next level? Icy gray-blonde highlights are unexpected on jet-black hair, but when they’re focused on the ends, the overall look is both soft and hip at the same time.

Cold Brew Color

NYC-based colorist Stephanie Brown says the “cold brew” color trend will continue to be big for fall. The name is a bit deceiving, because we’re not talking about plain coffee, rather a play on varying degrees of the cream that’s added. It’s about the “swirling of neutral and golden tones down the hair,” Brown explains. “Just like when you pour a little bit of milk into your coffee.”

Popping soft, caramel-colored curls with sun-kissed blonde highlights is like ordering your cold brew with a half-pump of hazelnut. It’s so subtle, but makes all the difference.

Shadow Roots

A shadow root — also called gloss smudging — is the perfect complement to the sunny summer highlight you already have going on, and actually looks cooler as it grows out.

Rich Brown

Daniel M, a colorist at Nova Arts Salon, tells us that he’s playing up rich brown colors for fall. “Fall is the best excuse to give your hair a nice break from bleach,” he says. “Opt for a warm brown — it’ll take your blonde back to a natural brunette. But keep a touch of highlight or a rich gloss, to keep it from looking flat.”

There’s another saying: good seasons start with good beginnings. In this instance, it’s appropriate for healthy hair. So release your fear and #AskKarlinesSalon for some autumn-inspired color. We’re just a call or click away.

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.

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.
