Hair care and beauty services are offered free of charge to homeless women each first Sunday of the month at Just Because Salon. The services kicked off this month in honor of Mother’s Day, but will extend well beyond.
Inspired by her participation in a mobile beauty truck to help women in need, salon owner, Carol says she was able to see the positive effects of pampering in even some small way on women going generally through very much larger issues.
Just Because Salon has created partnerships with a few local homeless shelters; women in receipt of services must be referred by these shelters.
If the name Just Because Salon, sounds familiar, it’s because Carol was also creator of the Prom Queen Project, which for many years supplied prom dresses and makeovers to local graduating high school seniors free of charge.
Just Because Salon provides are expert hair grooming and styling, and their award-winning “therapy approach” makes the health of the hair an integral part of the experience.
