Local Hair Salon Gives Back to Teen Moms

December 20th, 2013

This time of year we are so humbled by our generous donor community and the contributions they make, not only to provide a magical Christmas for our young moms and children, but also to provide essential items and special treats to help our clients save money. One such treat was recently presented to our young moms from Fady and his team at Hair Junkie by Fads Salon. A self-made entrepreneur, Fady wanted to share in his success by offering our students a chance to own hair styling tools that they might not otherwise afford or be able to access easily. Hair Junkie by Fads Salon held a promotion through the fall and winter months for their clients to donate gently used, high-end styling products to receive a discount on products for sale at the salon. Fady’s clients answered the call generously and his donation was the result.

With his colleague Chrystal in tow, Fady donated over 50 hairstyling tools for our students. Youville’s young moms got to choose from a wide array of curling irons, straightening irons, blowdryers, crimpers and diffusers. To say that our students were excited for this special treat would be putting it mildly.

On behalf of the young moms of Youville Centre, we would like to say a big thank you to Fady and his team, and we would also like to thank each and every client of Hair Junkie by Fads Salon who donated to this endeavour.
