Hair Today Job Tomorrow

House of Imago is a collective of beauty professionals who have been keeping American's finest city looking its best since 2012. We are located on Adams Avenue, a two-mile business district in San Diego that is almost exclusively comprised of small, independent store fronts.  On March 18, 2020, our entire business district was forced to stop all non-essential business and shelter in place. While we are happy to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19, many of us on Adams Ave are now unemployed or underemployed. 

As a small business owner, I allowed myself a day to let the gravity of the situation sink in. I started to fret about how I would continue to pay for my salon's rent, utilities, insurance, etc. during our mandatory closure. When I began feeling hopeless, I decided to shift my focus and count my blessings. I love being a part of Main Street America, and I realized I could keep my salon running and help one of the hardest hit segments of our population at the same time.

I am collecting donations now for service industry workers forced out of work. When the shelter at home order is lifted, best case scenario: our servers, bartenders, hosts and hostesses, cooks, and dishwashers will want to look their best before returning to work; worst case scenario: they will want to look their best while applying for new jobs. These donations will be used to provide them with free hair services.

Your donation will help keep my small business afloat during the required shutdown and will also provide free services to others in need. Together we can keep Main Street America alive and well! Thank you for anything you can give!
