Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Rachel Barber

Rachel Barber will be attending Charles Penzone Salons' Mother Daughter Spa Day for the third year, and is really looking forward to that haircut and style!

Rachel, almost 16, was born with a disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB for short). EB is a skin disorder that makes Rachel's skin very fragile and causes blisters and wounds all over her body. EB is not contagious, but it will require Rachel to wear full body bandages to protect her skin and to promote healing. Despite having this debilitating disorder all her life, Rachel lives her life like a normal teenager. She is even in the process of getting her driver's license!


Get to know Rachel:

What hobbies do you have?
Rachel: Reading, listening to music, hanging out with my friends, and watching TV

What is your favorite class?
Rachel: Math

What inspires you?
Rachel: Music!

We're looking forward to seeing Rachel and her mother again in a few weeks!

Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Katy Ferris

Each year, we're fortunate enough to open our to young girls with life-threatening illnesses. Named "Mother Daughter Spa Day," this event serves as a time to pamper these strong survivors, accompanied by their mothers. This year we welcome back Katy Ferris.


Katy Ferris was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at  three and half years old, and received chemotherapy that resulted in losing her hair twice. When her hair grew back and was long enough to donate, she went to The Charles Penzone Salon at Polaris Parkway to get the cut. To this day, she says that it was a wonderful experience and she will always remember it.

                                                  

Katy is 18 years old, and recently graduated from Pickerington High School. She will attend Central Ohio Technical College and major in Web Design in August. This will be her third year attending Mother Daughter Spa Day and she looks forward to getting a pedicure every year. And, we can't wait to pamper her later this month!

2014 Summer Skin Suggestions

It's June, it's officially summer, and the pools are open for the season. As we relic in this nice weather, we need to keep in mind what the sun is doing to our skin. Taking care of your skin now means less problems later in life. We've rounded up our best suggestions on summer skin wear and highly recommend you add these items to your summer collection!

Sunscreen: We know what you're thinking. "Ok great, I already know to wear sunscreen," but we're going to beat this into your brain, because sunscreen is the most important tool you can have on a sunny day. The ozone layer is depleting and your body needs to be shielded from the sun's harmful rays. Sunscreen is proven to decrease skin cancer and it helps fight aging as well. This is your best bet to keep skin looking youthful! And, who doesn’t want that?!

Products we recommend:
•    Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 33
•    BIOELEMENTS Ray Defense SPF 30

These products act doubly as a daily moisturizer and a sunscreen. You can also apply these products to your body! Both sold in our salons.

Exfoliate: Exfoliating your skin is important to getting that summer glow. Your body is constantly shedding skin cells and if you don't rid them, they'll just sit on top of your skin making you look dull and flaky. If you want that beautiful summer glow, exfoliation is the way to go!

Products we recommend:
•    CLARISONIC MIA Brush

This electric CLARISONIC exfoliating brush works better than manually exfoliating your face with a washcloth. It's able to get in there and really exfoliate your skin to its fullest. These are all the rage right now – our estheticians swear by them! Sold in our salons.

Hats, Clothes and Re-Application: When in the sun, wear a wide-brimmed hat to cover all angles the sun will strike. Wear a cover-up that covers your body appropriately. Re-apply your sunscreen frequently, especially when at the pool.

Overall, be smart about your exposure to the sun, and keep your skin safety at the forefront of your mind. We’re just looking out for you beauties! Have fun on the beach, the park, at that cookout...just be safe! Have a happy summer!

Spring Style 2014

Take heed! Spring is FINALLY here and our professionals Maggie, Genevieve,  and Debbrynne dish on trendy beauty advice for looks that will be sure to sizzle! Cheers to the warmer months ahead!




“We’re gearing towards a more natural, tousled look this spring. With the warmer weather come lighter colors as well-think natural and sun kissed. For length, I’ve been seeing a lot of longer bobs. That midi length is so edgy! To achieve the tousled look, try spritzing your hair with Davines Sea Salt Spray-I swear by it when styling guests!
-Maggie, Hair Professional |  Director, MAX The Salon, Short North









"As far as men are concerned,  I’ve been seeing a lot of undercuts with a side part. Undercuts eliminate all hair except for the top, which is a perfect style for lightening up in these spring months. It’s such a cool, clean look as well! To achieve the look, our hair stylist Andy uses L’anza Urban Molding Paste.”
-Maggie, Hair Professional |  Director, MAX The Salon, Short North






“While women’s hair becomes more tousled and textured, the men’s style becomes more polished. This spring, look for polished beards, textured waves, and metallic colors. Schwarzkopf just released a line of metallic colors called Igora Royal that we’re all very excited to try. Think light but bold!”
-Genevieve, Hair Professional |  Director, The Grand Salon in Gahanna/New Albany





“Get out your tiki torches and go tribal with your nails this spring! Tribal nail art is so ‘in’ this season, I love it! I’ve also been seeing some pops of color, like yellow and orange. Also, with the spring metallic hair, we are seeing a lot of metallic nails as well. Bikini Zone from OPI is a great purple metallic shade that is one of my favorites!”
-Debbrynne, Licensed Nail Professional, The Grand Salon at Polaris Parkway
