Mother Daughter Spa Day Member Highlight: Ivory Isaacs

On Sunday, July 19, 2015 from 3-7pm, nearly 80 young girls from nonprofit A Kid Again to enjoy a day with The Charles Penzone Salons. The spa day goes beyond just a day of pampering. Along with haircuts, manicures, facials, massages, and dinner, the event offers a safe environment for girls in treatment for life-limiting and terminal illnesses to support one another. It enables these girls to temporarily escape the medicine and the hospitals and be what they truly are – girls. It also gives their mothers a well-needed break and a chance to share quality time with their daughters during a few pleasurable hours of pure indulgence.

Meet 12-year-old Ivory Isaacs. Ivory was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor called Ependymoma when she was 5 years old. Within 48 hours of Ivory's diagnosis, she underwent multiple surgeries that resulted in multi-organ failure and a coma. Ivory spent weeks in a coma, and was not expected to live. But one day, she decided to wake up! A trech was placed and she set off to learn to walk, talk, and eat by mouth again.

Ivory did 31 rounds of high-dose radiation. Seven years later, she is cancer free, but not from the side effects that come with undergoing intensive treatment. Ivory currently sees many specialists, and has had over 50 surgeries to date.



One of Ivory's favorite days of the year is when A Kid Again takes families to King's Island and she gets a chance to ride the roller coasters. She is a lover of horses and rides as often as she can find a horse to ride. Ivory plans to "pay it forward" through her involvement in A Kid Again, and hopes that her story serves as an inspiration for someone going through cancer.

The Charles Penzone Salons is a strong advocate for causes that empower women and support children, and salon and spa professionals will carry on this tradition by donating their time and talent at The Grand Salon in Gahanna/New Albany. Since 1999, The Charles Penzone Salons has hosted the Mother/Daughter event, providing a day of pampering for girls with life threatening illnesses and their mothers.

Product of the Month-Davines MINU Serum

Starting in February 2015, The Charles Penzone Salons will feature a highlighted product every month at a 20% discount, doned our Product of the Month. Why? Because we have fallen in love with the product, and want our guests to experience it as well! Ask your hair professional about the product in your next appointment. We hope you fall in love with our Product of the Month as well!


This month our featured product is Davines MINU serum. Add this serum to your hair care regimen, and you won't regret it! Davines MINU serum adds shine and helps to maintain the intensity of color treated hair between visits. Ideal for ALL hair types, it's worth giving it a try, especially at a special discounted price.

The difference between MINU serum and other serums? It's not oily and will not weigh the hair down. The Illuminating Minu Serum provides hydration and moisture to dull lifeless hair. And it's full of nothing but good ingredients like amino acids, proteins, and extracts of the Salina Caper. 



For medium-coarse hair, apply to towel dried hair after conditioner. For fine hair, apply directly after shampoo. Do not rinse.  Proceed with drying and styling the hair as you normally would.
