This new partnership with Complexions Spa will specifically assist MatterofTrust.org in making oil spill hairmats out of salon hair clippings swept off the floor and previously discarded. Because hair is a natural absorbent fiber, the clippings are used to create oil spill hairmats and help contain disastrous petroleum spills. The hair is stuffed into tubes (booms) made from recycled nylons and used for emergency oil spills around the nation. The mats are also extremely efficient for oil drip pans, machinery, pipelines, and even as booms for storm drains. “There are more than 370,000 hair salons in the U.S. and each salon collects conservatively about one pound of hair a day. Right now, most of that goes into the waste stream. Imagine the positive environmental impact if more salons donated their hair clippings to this great effort,"
We asked that guests bring an item from the Ronald McDonald Wish List. In exchange we gave guests the service of their choice for 20% off. You should see our office.... it's over flowing with items. Last year we needed a van to bring everything over to the house. I think we will need to do the same this year! With the support of other local businesses, we were also able to have an auction which raised additional money for the Ronald McDonald House.
After more than 14 years in the hair removal business, I'm happy to report that today's lasers offer a wonderful option for those looking to eliminate hair from unwanted areas with a lot less pain then electrolysis (which while permanent, can sometimes require 15-30 visits for best results). That said, we do not tell anyone that it will remove every single hair for ever and ever. Instead, we tell our clients that they may need a few touch up treatments annually. There are things such as hormones, age, pregnancy, stress and medications that can influence future hair growth. As always, each case is unique, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the spa.
