FANTASTIC SAMS ON JOLLY LANE HOSTS GUEST APPRECIATION EVENT

OCT. 4-6

Fantastic Sams Hair Salon of Brooklyn Park is marking its second year in business by giving back to the Brooklyn Park community with an effort to raise money and support for the growing number of homeless teens in the area.  From Friday, Oct. 4 to Sunday, Oct. 6, the Fantastic Sams location at 7641 Jolly Lane in the Brooklyn Park Commons will donate a $1 from each haircut to a No Hassles Food Shelf—a non-profit organization that serves young people, 21 and under, by providing food, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies and blankets.  

“We are so grateful for the support we have gotten from the local area that we want to show our appreciation to our guests as well as do something to serve the community,” said Nancie Cross who co-owns the Brooklyn Park salon with her husband Steve. They are also long-time residents of the area. 

No Hassles Food Shelf, which recently relocated to Cross of Glory Church at 5929 Brooklyn Boulevard, estimates that more than 500 kids are homeless in ISD 279.  Founded in 2011, the organization serves 40 to 60 kids a week at peak times.  In addition to providing food and supplies, No Hassles Food Shelf has YMCA youth workers onsite to connect young people coming in for food with programs for shelter, employment, etc.

"Not everyone knows that teen homelessness is a growing dilemma in Brooklyn Park.  We want to increase awareness of this issue and also work to raise some funds that can help No Hassles Food Shelf to purchase a sign for its new location,” said Cross.  “We also hope to organize a food and supply drive for the organization in the coming months.”

During its Guest Appreciation Days, the Jolly Lane salon—one of three Fantastic Sams locations in Brooklyn Park—will offer haircuts for $7, which includes a free shampoo and conditioning rinse.    There will also be refreshments and guest appearances from Fuzzy who is Fantastic Sams adorable, furry mascot.

HAVING FUN IN THE SUN CAN WREAK HAVOC ON OUR HAIR. KARE JULY 22ND, 2013

Whether it is from the sun's damaging UV rays or frequent exposure to chlorine, our hair can suffer during summer and needs some attention to ensure it stays healthy and looks its best. Fantastic Sams Trend Expert Mary Jo McGinnity appeared on KARE 11 yesterday to share some summer hair tips:   http://kare11.tv/18BblxD


DON’T LET THE POOL WATER DOWN YOUR HAIR’S POTENTIAL! BY MARY JO MCGINNITY

What do you get when you mix sunshine, extreme heat, chlorine, bromine and copper compounds with your hair? Let’s just say, it isn’t pretty.

Hair that was once silky, thick and bouncy can become brittle, rough, faded and in some cases green. It’s called swimmer’s hair and it is a sacrifice we make in the summertime to enjoy a regular dip in the pool. For Twin Cities’ athletes, swimmer’s hair is a year-round challenge.

But, don’t go shave your head or pull a pixie hairstyle just yet! There are simple and inexpensive ways to keep your hair looking and feeling fabulous even if you can’t avoid the chlorine. Here are a handful of do-it-yourself and in-salon options we like to pass on to our Fantastic Sams Hair Salon clients from our regional educator: http://bit.ly/1319yJY
