Our November Community Outreach: Coalition to Support America’s Heroes

Jsalute-heroes-logoonathan and I, and our entire team at Salon Khouri, are humbled by the sacrifice of those in our Armed Services. They risk limb and life for the freedoms that we get to enjoy each and every day in our great nation. We look at guys like Rob Jones, and what he has overcome after losing both legs above the knee in an IED explosion while he was serving in Afghanistan. It’s astounding to think about his courage, absolute grit and utter determination to overcome injury and become truly inspirational to others. I think we sometimes take for granted just how much these men and women — and their families — sacrifice so that we have the freedoms provided for us in our Constitution. In the 241 years since this nation was founded (and in those years leading up to our independence), there have been countless men and women willing to give up comfort and safety so that generations after them would not have to. We may not be a perfect nation, but we are a very good nation striving to be a better one. And we are a nation founded upon the truth that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

We are taking time this month to thank those men and women, through the Coalition to Salute America’s Hereos, who have defended and who continue to defect these rights afforded to us in the United States.

Coalition to Salute America’s Hereos is a local non-profit, but one that serves wounded vets from across our nation. Their mission is to help severely-wounded veterans and families of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn recover from their injuries and illnesses, and to inspire other organizations and the general public to participate in this effort.

Coalition to Salute America’s Hereos has many great programs. One of them is is emergency financial assistance given to our wounded veterans to help pay for necessities such as food and rent.

Their Road to Recovery Conference is a life-changing experience that brings severely wounded troops and their families from all across the U.S. together to encourage hope, healing and to continue on the Road to Recovery.

Through their Employment Initiatives, Coalition to Salute America’s Hereos provides job placement through partner organizations as well as part-time employment for the catastrophically wounded, which provides income through customized jobs for these wounded vets.

It is our honor to partner with Coalition for America’s Hereos this November. We will be donating $1 from every haircut from our Fairfax and Dulles location to this amazing, local non-profit.

Best Facials in Loudoun County

Best Facials in Loudoun CountyLoudoun County Has the Best Faces… because of our facials!

Facials have been around for ages. Cleopatra was known for her dead sea mud masks and egg white eye treatments.

Women in Ancient China would make a mask with crushed pearls, oils, and herbs to remove spots and wrinkles.

Oh my have things changed!

All About Facials

Thanks to science and research many of those methods are ancient history. We can do much more thanks to clinical research and quality ingredients.

Our facials in Loudoun use the latest science, techniques, and technology to put your best face forward.

Did you know there are several kinds of facials? Depending on your needs, our skin care and hair salon in Loudoun county, gives you lots of options.

Our clinical facials address a number of skin challenges. Whether it be dehydration, irritation/redness, reduction in collagen or if you are looking to gain back more firm and youthful skin, we can help.

Aging brings wisdom, but sagging skin is not something most welcome, especially if we can do something about it! We are excited to offer our firm and lift facial. It uses a unique flaxseed formula to visibly lift sagging and aging skin. Not only is it effective, but it’s incredibly luxurious too.

Loss of collagen can also give you the appearance of aging. We say no to that! If you are seeing deeper set wrinkles and have lost some firmness, the collagen rehab facial might be for you. Our customers see a increase in hydration and a reduction in wrinkles every time. You can even take home a treatment to see continued results.

Is time an issue? At Salon Khouri we completely understand how life can be chaotic, which may keep you from getting a regular facial. No problem! We offer express facials to brighten and exfoliate the skin.

If you know a young adult struggling with break-outs, we have a teen acne facial to help reduce irritation, clean the pores and tone the skin. A skin reading is included!

How We Are Reducing Ocean Waste Plastic

Our hope is to turn this ….

 

Back to this …

We are proud to announce that Kevin Murphy will be re-working packaging on their square-shaped bottles to be made from 100% recycled ocean waste plastic. It’s true; they will be the first ever beauty brand to implement this practice, and they are hoping to start an industry-wide conversation about the heart of the issue: safe packaging disposal, and a commitment to keeping our planet as beautiful as the day mankind found it. Through their new project, they have projected to save the planet over 360 tons of new plastic each year. We are excited to be a Northern Virginia salon committed to helping with reducing ocean waste plastics through this initiative.

Every minute of every day, one garbage truck full of plastic is dumped into our oceans, which has led to over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering our beautiful water and affecting its sea life. Every piece of plastic that has ever been made – ever – is still here on our planet, and currently only 9% of our world’s plastics are recycled. KEVIN.MURPHY is committed to changing these statistics and reducing plastic in the best way they know how: by cleaning up our oceans and reclaiming that plastic to package their hair products in order to create a circular supply chain. They call this responsible packaging, and we encourage you to get involved.

As part of the KEVIN.MURPHY brand commitment to The Choices We Make, their latest initiative is a reflection of their unwavering attention to our environment through everything they do. This is an urgent call-to-action to help protect our vast oceans and marine life. Through this new initiative, KEVIN.MURPHY is aiming to change the industry standard on packaging.

Helping Children Through Child Help: Our October Community Outreach Partner

This October, our community outreach partner is Child Help, the largest non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect as well as at-risk children. With a home in Culpeper County, Child Help gives hope and much needed services to children who so desperately need healing and love.

The Alice C. Tyler Village in Lingum, VA, is a private, nonprofit, psychiatric residential treatment facility located in Northern Virginia. The Village provides a clinically sophisticated therapeutic program utilizing an interdisciplinary approach specializing in the treatment of children and adolescents with mild to severe trauma or neglect, psychiatric disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders.

The Village brings the light of love and healing into the lives of countless abused and neglected children, and those suffering from psychiatric and behavioral disorders. Their unique location on a 270-acre horse farm provides a nurturing treatment setting with a variety of therapy resources. Children live in separate home-like cottages based on age and gender. Each child has daily opportunities to pursue a variety of recreational activities: horseback riding, community outings, hiking and biking trails, rope courses, team sports, Go-Kart track, swimming, and a children’s choir.

We are honored to partner with Child Hope this October and will be donating $1 from every haircut we do in both our Fairfax and Dulles locations to this amazing non-profit!

KILLER.WAVES

by Kyrsti Ashmall

WHO IS THIS PRODUCT FOR: Those with fine hair that requires definition and volume. This product is weightless, invisible and is as light as air. For coarser curl management, check out KILLER.CURLS.

The newest CURL on our block is here: KILLER.WAVES. This weightless wave-enhancer is your one-stop-shop to add volume, texture and definition for your locks, and will give you that effortless “mermaid hair” you’ve been dreaming of. KILLER.WAVES was created with the curl-haired girl in mind, as each and every curly and wavy head of hair is unique, and no two heads are the same.

Our new KILLER.WAVES uses the same technology that is used to thicken and lengthen eyelashes in order to make your waves feel and look fuller, weightlessly. Infused with Baobab Seed Extract, Hibiscus Flower Extract and Yerba Mate, our favourite new wave-maker moisturises and maintains your curls and waves while fighting frizz, adding strength and offering overall protection and manageability for your ‘doo.

Just as curly and wavy hair is personal, so is the combination of products needed to keep it just so. KILLER.WAVES acts as the foundation product to lift and volumise your hair, giving you the flexibility to create a routine that is as unique as your curl.

Watch our video below to learn more about KILLER.WAVES!

Our Community Outreach Partner for September: The Truth 365

Over 15,000 kids will be diagnosed with cancer in the next 365 days. Cancer kills more than 2,500 children in our country every year.

The goal of The Truth 365 is to educate and mobilize millions of people through Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other social networking sites. Their full-length documentaries and shorter films inform the public that there is a critical need for funding for childhood cancer research. Through increased awareness comes increased funding. You see, children *should be* our nations’ priority. Yet, the shocking lack of funding for childhood cancers indicates otherwise. We are sad to again be including this fact in our blog: the National Cancer Institute allocates only 4% of it’s cancer research budget toward childhood cancers. And 4% is simply not enough. Drug companies aren’t allocating research dollars either, as there are 16 major types of pediatric cancers and over 100 subtypes – all of which need to be approached differently. Much of the funding for new therapies are left to be raised by the parents, which is a burden they should not have to bear. Yet, they do, faced with no other options for helping their children. They bike, run, shave their heads, participate in ultra marathons — just about anything they can do — they will to raise money to give to advance research.

We would love for you to spread the word about CureFest, an amazing and FREE childhood cancer event in Washington DC! This year, CureFest will be September 15th and 16th, with the 1.8 mile walk on Sunday.

We are donating $1 from every haircut from both locations this September to The Truth 365. You also have an opportunity to help by donating at our front desk where you can fill out a Childhood Cancer Awareness Square to hang in our window to help us #GoGold this September! To read more about the shocking facts of childhood cancer, please read our blog post from last year.
