Laid Off? We’re Here to Help.

Being laid off can make you feel like you’ve been kicked in the gut. It’s personal. And it can oftentimes shake our confidence.

Like it or not, studies have shown that appearance does matter, especially when it comes to landing a job. A study by Beth Winfrey Freeburg Ph.D. and Sally E. Arnett Ph.D showed that “prospective employers‘ and interviewee‘s determination of job fit in part are based on appearance.” The same study references over twenty-five  articles and studies that confer their findings. An article in Elle titled, Is Your Hair Holding You Back, reminded us of the line in the ubiquitous film Working Girl where Tess takes a pair of scissors to her ultra long locks and mile-high bangs, lops them off with one fell swoop announcing, “You wanna be taken seriously, you need serious hair.”

So, we’d like to help. Now through December, if you have been laid off and are currently looking for work, we would like to offer you complimentary hair makeover with one of our fabulous stylists, Kelly Stoneberger. We simply ask that you email us your resume as payment. We will post your resume on our Facebook page in the hopes that one of our fans can help.

We believe, and I mean we truly believe, that looking good boosts confidence. And confidence, along with some solid interview preparation techniques, will help you land your next job.

Pay it Forward in Memory of Casey

We’ve been so inspired at Salon Khouri by the good works of others. And we noticed that when people do nice things for other people, it makes not only us feel good, and the people we help feel good, but it also (hopefully) inspires others to do the same. You know the term, “pay it forward.”

One year ago today, a friend lost her precious little boy to atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), a rare form of brain cancer. He was just 6.5 months when diagnosed and fought until he was 14.5 months. You can read more about Casey here. We wanted to do something to help the family, and asked what we could do. Casey’s mother simply asked for people to perform random acts of kindness to honor Casey’s memory. She asked, “Donate anything to any charity in his name, help an elderly person carry their groceries out to their car, mow the lawn for the old lady down the street, anything you may not normally do but can do within your means.”

She also asked that people post what they’d done for others on Casey’s CaringBridge site. To honor Casey on the one year anniversary of his passing, we ask that you do something kind for someone today. To help lift the family during this difficult day, we would love for you to post your random act of kindness to their CaringBridge site.

Thank you, as always, for helping! Our clients are kind, as is evident in the many charitable efforts you have helped us with over the past seven years.

Warmly,

Jennifer and Jonathan Elkhouri

Does a perm mean you will look like a poodle?

When I was young, my mom gave me an Ogilvie home perm. I should also mention that my hair was so blonde that a kid in my fourth grade class wrote that I had white hair when asked to write a description of me for a class assignment. Combine the bad home perm and Casper-like hair color and you have what looked like a dead poodle perched on my head.

Needless to say, that was the last tight perm on this gals head. Fast forward a few years (ok, maybe MORE than a few), and we now have an innovative new perm technique that originated Japan called the Air Wave. Forget tight, frizzy locks and think sexy, loose, big, bouncy, soft curls.

We are excited to have this incredible, new curl technique available at Salon Khouri. Orie, fluent in amazing hair, English, and Japanese, is available for complimentary consultations for the service. Unfortunately, the Air Wave is not for all hair types, so please be sure to come in for a complimentary consultation and hair analysis prior to booking the Air Wave. The a la carte service is $145.
