Being a stylist means a whole lot more to me then just cuts, colors, treatments and blow outs.
It’s about making a personal connection with you while you're in my chair. Hearing your story, listening to what you want, watching you grow and evolve over time.
It’s about helping clients express themselves through beauty and personal style in whatever form that expression takes for them. That’s the ultimate payoff for me.
At Studio67 we would do hair for free if it didn’t cost money to eat.
When we opened the doors to this studio last August we knew we wanted more out of this space than just a salon. We wanted to create a place where people felt welcome and at home. A space that empowers people to express themselves, no matter they you are. We believe everyone is entitled to that.
We always knew we wanted to give back somehow. Do something good, offer some kind of support, or act as some kind of community resource. So we started researching community programs in Toronto and that’s when we learned about Sistering.
Sistering is a women’s organization that offers practical and emotional support programs designed to empower women in extraordinary circumstances. They are dedicated to changing the social conditions that endanger the welfare of women who may be dealing with mental health, homelessness, transience, domestic violence, poverty or unemployment.
Their drop-ins give women a safe place of belonging and community during the day and their emergency shelter give women a roof over their heads and food to eat if they need it. They offer housing support services, counselling, healthcare, and employment assistance.
I honestly can’t say enough about what a wonderful and crucial organization they are.
Well, we’ve been working with Sistering for the last few months by dedicating one day a month to giving complimentary services to the wonderful ladies of Sistering.
We can’t tell you how amazing it has been to meet all of these beautiful women and spend a day just doing hair for the sake of doing hair.
Thank you to each and every one of you ladies, it really has been our pleasure and we look forward to hosting you at Studio67 each and every month.
Do good. Give Back.
