ROCKIN' ROLLERS UPGRADES

$1,270 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 28 months
HELLO FRIENDS, FAMILY & CLIENTS ~ My name is Joe Normal Hutchinson, my wife Gigi and I started our Music Enrichment Studio & Hair Salon, ROCKIN' ROLLERS, two plus years ago in our quaint town of Sierra Madre, CA. We combine our passions and talents under one roof and serve the community with what we do, by building a unique business of our own that our whole  family, and yours, could be a part of. One of our goals, was to eventually expand beyond the walls of our one tiny studio into a bigger space where we could offer more services and host community events.  This would provide the opportunity for Gigi and I to work simultaneously while providing our customers with great personalized service. We thank you for your support and allowing us to finally do this! We are excited to announce that we have a great staff on board now too!
  Now that we have our spaces, we need to do some upgrades that would make our services and your visit more comfortable and professional. 
One thing is a more updated POS system. Checkouts would be a lot smoother and easier if we had a dedicated system. That being said our other goal along with that would be to have at least a part-time receptionist to serve you better. 
Another thing we are looking to do is reposition the shampoo sink into the back part of the salon. This would open up the front so it wouldn't be so crowded and it would flow much better. It would also allow us to do more private services such as waxing and possibly lash extensions in the back of the salon. One other thing on our wish list would be to have either a door or window between our two businesses so we can all stay connected! Finally, we might have yet another opportunity to expand into the front unit!
ROCKIN' ROLLERS strives to be a gathering place where people can come to nurture their inner and outer talents and spirit in all things creative...  be it their beauty and image, or their passion to learn an instrument, write songs, or play in a band! We strive to be a launching pad for upcoming talent with our regular Open Mic, and provide an atmosphere that fosters creativity and recognizes and nurtures individuality. We are grateful for your support and loyalty and for helping us to serve you and our community better! Joe Normal Hutchinson & Gigi Hutchinson  ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's a little more about us: ROCKIN' ROLLERS began with the vision of married couple Joe Normal & Gigi Hutchinson to combine their two passions, MUSIC ENRICHMENT and HAIRDRESSING in a creative atmosphere that brings together Music and Image. Whether you come for Music Lessons or for a Hair Service, you'll be pleasantly surprised how these two worlds COLLIDE to bring enjoyment, enrichment, and well-being to our clients and community. Available to ALL AGES, we provide a creative atmosphere for music exploration and artistic discovery. OUR MISSION STATEMENTS Our mission is to provide guests with a creative and comfortable space where they can come "Rock Out" and "Let Their Hair Down." ---(JOE) MUSIC ENRICHMENT: My mission at ROCKIN’ ROLLERS is to facilitate every music student to discover and develop their unique musical gifts in an atmosphere that recognizes individuality and inspires creativity. Above all, playing and creating music should be FUN, so my staff and I aim help students access their talents with ease and confidence. We strive to meet each music student at his or her level and encourage them to lead the way by supporting their musical ideas, interests and direction, together exploring various instruments, styles, and techniques. I TEACH FROM THE HEART… NOT THE BOOK. “We are the music-makers… and we are the dreamers of dreams.”  – Willy Wonka   ---(GIGI) HAIR DESIGN: My mission at ROCKIN' ROLLERS is to make guests feel welcome and offer personalized service, partnering with each client to meet their individual beauty and lifestyle needs. The aim is for guests to feel relaxed when they are here, and refreshed when they leave. It's important to me and my staff to use and provide an exceptional line of products that reflect my own personal values as well as the needs and lifestyle of our clientele.

To all our Supporters, Friends, Family & Clients!

These last several months have just zoomed by since we began our Go Fund Me campaign and received your generous donations to fund the ongoing Expansion and construction at Rockin' Rollers Studio & Salon!

We've still got so much more to do, and our progress has depended on the generosity and love of our community.

The time has come to make good on 2 of our promises. Firstly, by installing the "Wall Of Fame" to honor those donors who contributed at the "LOUDER" level and above, and Secondly, by distributing the cool new Rockin' Rollers T-shirts we've all been antici---pating!

When we found out that the original building was once a garage, I got it in my brain to incorporate some car items into the decor.

Can you spot the wild flaming Car Hood in the picture below?! That's the beginnings of our Wall Of Fame!
(A free t-shirt to the first person who can accurately tell me the make & model of the car it once belonged to!)

Come on down to our Holiday Boutique & Open Mic to see our progress, and your donations at work!
SUN. DEC. 11th, 2016 2:00PM - 6:00PM

Cheers,

Joe & Gigi

LIGHTS... CAMERA... ACTION!

We are setting up for our TV shoot at Rockin' Rollers this week! Can't disclose the name of the show yet, but it's a weekly series on CBS, and the whole episode involves our entire family!

Rockin' Rollers is so proud to present our newly streamlined image to TV viewers nationwide! But we are far from finished doing our build-out in the Salon and remainder of the studio.

Please spread the word to friends and loved ones about our FUNraiser and help us get the job done proper!

Love you all,

JOE & GIGI

Joe & Gigi
