Helping feed our local brothers and sisters!

It’s so easy to take things for granted when we have abundance, particularly when it comes to a basic necessity such as food. However, this isn’t the reality for all. In fact, there are many of your neighbors who are struggling to have food to put on their tables each night. We have such a heart for local organizations who are ensuring our brothers and sisters are nourished. This November, we are donating $1 from every haircut to two wonderful, local non-profits who are ensuring that our neighbors have food on the table. Our Fairfax location is partnering once again with Our Daily Bread Fairfax, and our Dulles Landing location is partnering with Dulles South Food Pantry.

We will also be collecting food at both location for donation to the respective non-profits. A complete list of most wanted items for Our Daily Bread Fairfax can be found here, while a list of most wanted items for Dulles South Food pantry can be found here.

Both organizations have amazing outreach to our community and help ensure that those in need are fed while at the same time, promoting self-sufficiency to those served. Please take a moment to learn about each organization from their websites by clicking their respective logos below. Our hope is you will be encouraged by the good they do to help them continue to do so!

How to Avoid Halloween Beauty Blunders

We recently were asked by the Today Show how to avoid Halloween hair hijinks!

You can read the full article here, and below is an excerpt:

“If you get glitter stuck to your scalp, try using a clarifying shampoo such as Kevin Murphy Maxi Wash. This often does the trick for my clients. Gently massage the scalp with the shampoo to break up any glitter that has affixed to your scalp,” said Jonathan Elkhouri, master stylist and owner of Salon Khouri in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. If you are attempting any hair looks that defy gravity using wire (like Pippi Longstocking or Dr. Seuss’ Whoville characters), be sure to use a coated wire such as a pipe cleaner or wired-ribbon. If your hair gets stuck in one of the wires, apply a generous amount of conditioner onto the knot and gently work out the tangle, Elkhouri suggests. The conditioner will make the hair slippery enough to detangle the wire from the hair.

Promise us this …

The Childhood Cancer Awareness movement is growing. Our hope is that the color gold instantly makes people think, “childhood cancer awareness” just as pink conjures up “breast cancer awareness” for many. Yes, the movement is growing, but there is still a lot of work to be done.

There have been only three drugs in the past twenty years approved by the FDA that were specifically developed to treat children with cancer. And that number grew from two to three just this year. This is simply not acceptable.

The National Cancer Institute spends just 4% of it’s federal research dollars on childhood cancer research funding. Just 4%. This is simply not acceptable.

The incidents of childhood cancer have increased 29% in the past twenty years. As our friend Tom Mitchell at Stillbrave said, “we spend more as a nation on potato chips than we do finding a cure for various childhood cancers.” This is simply not acceptable.

There are more facts on childhood cancer, but you are probably getting a little overwhelmed thinking, “what can I do?” Well, the truth is, there’s a LOT you can do!

First, you can sign the Petition on The Truth 365 website asking Congress to make children a national priority by increasing federal funding for childhood cancer research.

You can volunteer with local organizations such as Stillbrave, Ellie’s Hats, Kyle’s Kamp, Journey4ACure, participate in CureFest on September 20th, or email us to get connected to other many wonderful groups.

 

You can come into Salon Khouri during the month of September and get a haircut or a yellow-gold hair extension. We are donating $1 from every haircut in both our Dulles Landing and Fairfax locations to The Truth 365. We are donating net proceeds from the $10 yellow-gold hair extensions as well! Or, come see us at CureFest to learn more about how to implement a Crazy Hair Day at your school to raise money and awareness for childhood cancers.

Will you promise that you will do just one thing on this list? Then, tell someone about it. Ask them to do one thing too. Let’s keep the movement going! Help us spread awareness!

Facebook feed blackhole – how to ‘relike’ your favorite pages

We often hear from our Salon Khouri Enthusiasts that they never see our Facebook posts appear in their newsfeeds. Well, if you have ‘Liked’ the Salon Khouri Facebook page then wonder why you never see our posts, it’s due to Facebook constantly tinkering with their algorithm of what appears in your newsfeed. Facebook’s constant changes are very difficult for small business owners to navigate. What makes some of these recent changes more difficult for the small business owner is how Facebook has changed the game so that businesses are now having to pay for posts to show up in their fans’ newsfeeds. Yes, you heard us … we have to pay to get you to see content that you’ve told Facebook you want to see by the mere fact that you ‘Liked’ our page. Not a big deal for large companies with tremendous advertising budgets, but it’s pretty frustrating for smaller ones with limited advertising dollars. But, thanks to some clever folks in internet land, we found a few ways to help you get more of our content in your feed.

We want to start by saying that we typically only post once a day (if that), so please know that we won’t be junking up your newsfeed by following the steps below to ensure more of our content shows on your feed.

The first thing you will want to do is navigate to our Salon Khouri Facebook page. Once there, hover over the Like button (click Like if you have not yet Liked our page), then select, Get Notifications:
FBLike_1

 

Next, a button should appear to the right of the ‘Liked’ button which will allow you to customize how you see our posts in your Newsfeed. Here, select See First.

FBLike_2

 

 

Additionally, please be sure to Like, Comment, or Share our posts. Even though you have completed the steps above, Facebook also uses these statistics when deciding what appears in your Newsfeed.

Facebook has been a great way for us to connect with our Enthusiasts and to share information about our Community Partners, to have contests, and to highlight some of the phenomenal work our amazing team does. We hope you enjoy what we post and always value feedback from you on how we can improve! We just want to be sure you are actually seeing what we post 🙂

 

Planting seeds of hope for Loudoun’s autistic community

We are beside ourselves excited to be partnering with Legacy Farms this July by donating $1 from every haircut from Salon Khouri Fairfax and Salon Khouri Dulles to this new and budding non-profit.LegacyFarmsLogo Additionally, we are collecting bags of seeds of the following vegetables for Legacy Farms for their garden project they are building for the Paxton school: broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, mustard greens, radishes, pumpkins, squash, beans or spinach. To thank you for helping with this great project, we will take $1 off your service for each bag up to 5 bags!

Legacy Farms was formed in 2011 by a group of teachers, parents and professionals with a common vision: to create training for meaningful post-secondary opportunities for adults with autism and other developmental and social challenges. Legacy Farms envisions a community of people living and working together on the farm, in a way that will allow them to remain self sustainable and as independent as possible. It is the goal of Legacy Farms to not only teach their participants these skills, but to connect them with the rural community through a variety of outreach programs and services.

Legacy Farms hopes to raise $300k this year to allow them to lease a seven-acre parcel north of Purcellville, which will allow Legacy Farms to provide work for more adults with autism and other challenges. You can learn more about Legacy Farms via their website, or, we encourage you to attend their 2nd annual Legacy Farms Summer Garden Party on August 1 from 6-9 PM. Be sure to visit the Legacy Farms event page for more information.

 

Dedicated to placing Legacy Farmers on commercial Farms, vineyards, breweries and nurseries throughout Virginia.
