“Every August, we celebrate the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ with a promotion to benefit the Hilton Head Humane Association. We invite all dog lovers to purchase one of our Doggy Spa products and in return, we make a donation in their name. Clients are also encouraged to view our album of adoptable pets.”

“We recently launched a program with Light of Life Rescue Mission, a local homeless shelter, donating 10 cents from every private label item we sell to be used for the purchase of shampoos and conditioners for homeless men and women at the shelter. Our clients are thrilled with this concept!”

“Our salon partnered with the Humboldt Breast Health Care Project, and became a resource in the community of awareness and information. Each May we do a percentage of sales to honor women on Mother’s Day. With each gift certificate sold, we attach literature on breast health care, and acknowledge them by giving a donation in their name.”

“For Hurricane Katrina relief, all of the therapists and stylists opened their books on a Sunday. Any treatment was a $50 donation. The community also showed up with donations of clothes, household items, jobs and places to live for some of the displaced people that evacuated to our area.”
