Princess for A Day
Tyler Mason Salon Spa
Indianapolis, IN
Owner: Tammie Baker

Tyler Mason’s biggest philanthropic partnership is Flashes of Hope which provides free family portraits to the families of terminally ill children. Since 2009, the salon has helped raise funds as well as donated stylists to style hair and do makeup before the portraits.

The salon also hosts Princess for a Day, an event where little girls are treated to hair, makeup and nail services, visits with princess-costumed volunteers, crafts and activities, face painting, magic and balloon animals, princess story times, dancing, singing and snacks. The salon charges an entry fee and holds a silent auction and raffle, with all proceeds donated to Flashes of Hope.

“This year we also offered to take over planning of the event, and we saw our attendance numbers double and exceeded our total profit goal of $2,500 by $300 dollars,” Baker says. “We do this event because we care about Flashes of Hope, but we always receive recognition. The event usually receives at least one media hit and this year, we had two.”

STAMP 2018: The SpaCanna Escape

Stacey Soble | September 19, 2018

Apothecanna’s philosophy, aromas and textures perfectly resonated with the Habitude guest, so Inez Gray determined 4/20 was the perfect date to co-brand with the cannabis-derived line on a Mother’s Day campaign, because “What do Moms need more than weed cream?” The spa sold more than $45,000 worth of gift cards, attributing its success to the controversial and exciting campaign.

STAMP 2018: Try a Guerilla Marketing Campaign

Stacey Soble | September 19, 2018

Two of RedBloom Salon's master stylists took the lead on a marketing project that had some legs. Without telling the team why, they asked each member why they love what they do and collected the responses through an online form. On a Monday, when the salon was closed, the team leaders used window markers to write the responses on the salon’s windows to surprise both the guests and the team members.
