Dream Salon

There are many worthy causes and you should support those first and foremost, but if you feel inclined to help after reading my story and ideas, it would be awesome!

I want to go to cosmetology school and open my own salon with other young women (under 30). This salon will celebrate natural beauty and diversity. I am especially intersted in making sure we serve our communnity by giving back. I'd also like to develop a product line. I want to help people look and feel their best, using my creativity and skill and I'd like to do it with all natural and eco friendly products. It's a BIG deam, I know, and it will take time.

First I have to go to school. I have chosen Phagen's because it is local, diverse, and it gives back to the community. But school is expensive. Can you help? 

Cosmetology school is $20,000. I have about $8,000 saved and my parents are helping all they can as well. I work about 20 hours a week at Dutch Bros. and that covers my living expenses. Your donation will help me finish school and start saving for my own salon. I am a hard worker and business saavy, your donation will be put to good use. 

Please know that I will value every donation and offer you services in return! 

$25 earns you a personalized, lovely, and heartfelt thank you!
$50 earns you a personalized, lovely, and heartfelt thank you and a hair cut in the next year. 
$100 earns you all of the above, a hair cut and color, or a facial.
$150 + earns you all of the above plus a beauty consult and makeover. 
$200 + earns all of the above plus a beauty make over party for you and a group of friends. 
$500 or more, and I'll do all of the above plus an original painting by me as well as pretty much beauty services for life! 

Thank you in advance, 


*I am also a great house cleaner and babysitter.
