Here at Steve Hightower Hair & Day Spa we strive to be a part of our community and to give back when and where we can. Last year was exhilarating and full of events, which turned out to be great blessings!
We can’t thank you enough for joining us and taking part in our efforts to raise money for The Center for Children and Young Adults (CCYA). Not only did you support the kids by adopting each of them for Christmas, but you also helped us raise close to 0,000.00 in our annual Thriving Children Gala this past May. Thank you! While having a fun night of fashion, we are able to help empower homeless teens and young adults, helping them to transition into living as independent contributing adults into our community. I was lucky to tour their facilities and it was great to see the resources available to these kids that they wouldn’t have without all the help. Thank you for your donations and your volunteer work this year!
Besides putting on our own fashion show, we volunteered our time and talents to help other great causes. “Teal to Heal” was a fashion show put on by Tootsies to raise awareness of and to celebrate the lives of those suffering from ovarian cancer. This was the third year we volunteered to do the hair and makeup for women who are in remission or currently fighting ovarian cancer. It felt so good to get each of these very brave, strong, beautiful women ready to walk the runway!
For the first time we did hair and makeup for Manna Fund for their campaign “Be the Model,” a fashion show to raise money for the treatment of teens with eating disorders and the prevention of the mindset that leads to developing them. The Manna Fund’s goal is to create a movement for our youth to change their belief about beauty. We look forward to working with this inspiring organization with their show this year.
One of the fun things we’ve done in the salon was host Jaime Primak Sullivan, star of “Jersey Belle” on her Keurig Cawfeetawk tour. She brought her crew and invited her viewers to an early morning meet and greet. We shared beauty tips over coffee and enjoyed Jaime’s message of women empowering women. This event was one of the highlights of our year and a great time!
Celebrity makeup artist Lori Neapolitan flew in from Chicago to meet with our clients, giving each person a private makeup class. She transformed an easy, quick, customized, five-minute makeup application into a polished day look, and then transitioned the look into a beautiful “party” or “night time” look. What is fantastic about Lori is she meets each women where they are and incorporates beauty into their lives in an easy, non-intimidating way that fits their unique lifestyle. She taught us a class so we can help you create your own customized look if you missed her. Being pretty and polished doesn’t have to be intimidating!
Some other things happening here at the salon: Steve has launched his own line of lipsticks. Called “SH Color”, we are featuring four new shades of long wearing, lip moisturizing, wearable colors. Be sure to stop in and try them on, you may just find your signature lip look!
As some of you might have noticed, we have had some remodeling going on this past month and it is now finished. In addition to re-painting the entire interior of the salon, we have renovated the spa area, creating a quieter, relaxing, restful atmosphere for our clients enjoying spa services.
This past year we were recognized by Talk of the Town for “Best Beauty & Day Spa”, Modern Luxury’s Jezebel Magazine “Best of 2014 for Best Salon” and Tamara Townsend, our esthetician, was voted “Best Faux Lashes” for her eyelash extension work. We are the chosen salon referral for the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, and the Intercontinental hotels.
