HIP Stylist Ryan Brown pitched in to help shave the heads of 60 men, women and children as part of the 6th Annual Shamrock Shave on March 15 in Algonquin.

Ryan’s volunteering contributed to St. Margaret Mary parish and community raising more than $40,000 to benefit the needy through the St. Vincent DePaul Society and cancer research through the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. You can read more about the Shamrock Shave benefit on St Margaret Mary’s webpage.

What’s really cool is that one of Ryan’s shaved heads belongs to Emily Orabutt, a HIP Salon friend who raised the most – more than $4,200 – for the event.

Congrats to Emily and all the Shamrock Shave participants for an awesome showing!

You guys, (Sham)ROCK!

A Message from the HIP Salon Team

The HIP Salon family proudly employs 16 professionals, and many have been with us from the start of our business in 2005.

But economics are what they are. In order to keep our long-term commitment to our staff, we will be raising some of our prices by $5 beginning April 1. Our last rate increase was in 2012.

What do you get in return? A talented, highly trained team of professionals dedicated to their craft. HIP staffers are continuously learning and expanding our knowledge base.

In 2013 alone, we participated in more than 10 training courses led by hair care experts from Bumble and Bumble, Kerastase, Schwarzkopf colour, MEI makeup, Oribe, and Perfectress Hair Extensions, among others.

It says it all in our mission statement: We endeavor to educate and motivate our salon team to the highest achievable level, allowing us to create the utmost positive, professional and creative atmosphere for clients and staff. Our mission is to reflect this energy to better serve our clients in new trends, products and services.
