Atlanta's top curly hair salon, Southern Curl, is celebrating its 1-year anniversary with Hurricane Harvey victims in mind.
Being a longtime client and friend of Southern Curl owner and recent 2017 Modern Salon 100 honoree, Robin Sjoblom, I couldn't be more excited to hear about the salon's 1-year anniversary celebration this Saturday and Sunday, 9/16-9/17 at MWest Lofts in Atlanta, GA.
More importantly, perhaps, than being happier than ever for the success of Sjoblom and her talented crew, I was delighted to read on her invitation that there would be a special donation and prize giveaway with proceeds benefiting victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
There will be a $10 drawing for a chance to win Southern Curl's Custom Curl Cut, a $165 value, with all proceeds going to people affected by the recent natural disasters in Houston, TX, Miami, FL, the British Virgin Islands and surrounding areas. (See all of the team's amazing curly transformations here.) A chance to spin Southern Curl's "Whirl of Curls" for prizes and products will happen every 30 minutes. Per party orders, mimosas and beer will be in abundance as well!
Robin is no stranger to rendering her amazing curly skills for a good cause -- last October she hosted Rock Your Blessings fundraiser supporting yours truly in my effort to pay for costly monthly medical treatments to curb my chronic illness, Takayasu's Vasculitis.
"Opening Southern Curl has been a dream come true," says Sjoblom. "I feel so blessed to walk into the salon every morning and know I have a team of wonderful women who are on the same bus I'm on. Southern Curl is a space where women and men of curl can come and feel comfortable and leave confident in who they are."
If you are in the Atlanta area, please visit and support our good friends at Southern Curl for their 1-year anniversary festivities. You will be celebrating for a good cause!
Bring any unopened and unused products that will also be donated to Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas. The salon address is:
