I am beyond thrilled to announce that our curly community was able to raise more than our goal of $6,000 for Keep A Child Alive in a Fundraising Cut-A-Thon on September 12-13th. I was able to welcome Lorraine Massey and seven (count them, SEVEN!) Curly Hair Specialists from all over the US, to Olympia to help cut and shape curly hair for a cause! We had a blast together at the auction brunch, book signing, and meet and greet on Saturday. Then we rocked Olympia, changing lives and self esteems, on Sunday. All told, 41 haircuts were done (and one bang trim) and 100% of the proceeds went to KCA. I am so proud of my team and also the clients that showed up and donated! Enjoy the slideshow!
I have hired a new assistant and she started about two weeks ago! Read on to learn a little bit about Julia!
"I am absolutely honored to be a part of OlyCurl. I have always loved working with curly clients, and to work alongside someone so passionate about this business is truly rewarding.
I am a born-and-raised Washingtonian. I love Olympia and have no intention to leave. Giving back to my community is very important to me, so while working alongside Yukiko, I plan to volunteer at local shelters and offer free haircuts once a week.
I live and breathe hair. When I'm out of the salon, I'm still trying out different techniques and browsing current trends. I also love cooking, reading, writing poetry, and going on nature walks with my family.
I look forward to meeting all of you amazing Curlies!"
