Subject: October News at Talking Headz!

Shocking Headz Prevention Point Benefit was a huge success!
Sunday September 29th, we hosted a benefit fundraiser with local vendors, raffle baskets, good music, and a mini bar to raise awareness and money for Philadelphia's Prevention Point. Prevention Point is a private, non-profit charity organization revolving around the health, empowerment, and safety of communities affected by poverty and drug use. They offer syringe services, medical services, housing, meals, and so much more. 

Prevention Point reps Elvis and Clayton came to our benefit to discuss the dangers of Fentanyl and K2 and educated us on Narcan administration to reverse an overdose and hopefully save lives. They also handed out Narcan kits to those who needed them and we're proud to say that now every single Talking Headz employee possesses Narcan and can save a life.

With your help, we raised $1,072 for Prevention Point! 
($60 of it was in the form of a personal check to Prevention Point and therefore not reflected in the online donation)
We're excited to announce our next featured stylist for our Hellraiser Box series: Colleen!
Our Hellraiser Box series is a $15 curated box of four EVO mini products, chosen with care by our featured stylist. Each box is a minimum $24 value and contains a $10 coupon to bring back and use towards the purchase of a full-size EVO product. You can find the Hellraiser Box at the front desk of the salon! 

Colleen has been working at Talking Headz for more than five years now; she started with the salon as an assistant and quickly discovered her love for hair, prompting her to go to cosmetology school at Jean Madeline Aveda Institute. After graduating with her cosmetology degree four years ago and apprenticing under our owner, Heather, she’s been a cherished full-time floor stylist ever since.

Colleen loves doing fun hair cuts and especially loves cutting effortlessly cool shags. She also enjoys big, fun color appointments ranging from balayages to crazy and bright colors! Colleen has been a fighting advocate for diversity and inclusion for years and makes it a priority to ensure that every single one of her clients who sits in her chair feels welcome and appreciated. As our resident Taurus, Colleen is tough, strong-willed, and fiercely loyal to her friends and family, all of whom she keeps very close to her heart.

When Colleen’s not at the salon, she’s at home with her life partner and her four rescue kitties. She loves reading, hiking, playing video games, and lifting weights. She loves to joke around and make people smile.

Exciting salon news!
Calling all wavy/curly/super curly-haired friends! Starting next week, we will be carrying DevaCurl products! In anticipation of our new product line, all Talking Headz stylists and assistants attended a DevaCurl product class and learned so much about this incredible line. We can't wait to share these products and our knowledge with you! 
A friendly update on booking color services at the salon:
As most of you are already aware, we require a $50 deposit to book color appointments. This deposited is credited towards your total the day of the appointment and is only forfeited in the event of a no-show or last-minute cancellation.

Due to the high volume of last-minute cancellations in recent months, we have changed our cancellation policy: $50 deposits will be required for all color appointments regardless if you are a first-time color client or not, and our cancellation notice policy has changed from 24 hours to 48 hours. We understand that emergencies happen and always do our best to accommodate our clients, but outside of emergencies, if a reschedule or cancellation occurs with less than 48 hours notice, your deposit will be forfeited. 

We truly hope we are not inconveniencing or upsetting our beloved and loyal clients: we adore our jobs and take what we do extremely seriously. In the hairdressing industry, we are not paid a salaried wage- we work completely on commission. In the event of a last-minute color cancellation, it's extremely difficult to re-book that time slot with minimal notice. 

We want to spend our time at the salon with you guys- our clients! Adequate notice for color cancellations allows us to be able to accommodate more clients booking for cuts or color services. 

We hope you understand, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out: you can always give us a call at the front desk or chat with us in person!
