How we help
Here at Salon Success we love to give back and help our local community. Whether it's a bake sale, fundraising for a colleague or providing a raffle prize for a salon, we believe in the Paul Mitchell® #GivingIsMyStyle mantra and help out where we can.
At Salon Success, we don’t just care about our customers and our team (although they are the heart of our business), we care about our environment and the world we live in too
From using recycled and recyclable materials to getting our hands dirty planting trees; we constantly strive to make our business greener, and our world a little better.
In 2011 we took the decision to charge our salons for plastic retail bags, helping to reduce unnecessary waste. We have donated over £85,000 since 2011 to charities including The World Land Trust, WWF-UK, Healthy Planet, Re’Forest Action, CoppaFeel! and are currently partnering with The Diana Award.
Giving back is also at the heart of everything Paul Mitchell® do, so when you choose to work with or purchase Paul Mitchell® products, you help support countless charities and philanthropic causes around the globe.
Take a look at the video below to see how JMPS have been giving back.
How we've been helping
Below are just some of the charities we've worked with, either by donating our time or raffle gifts to help raise money for the charity.
Mary Wan's fundraising
Kenra Educator Mary Wan has been generously giving up her time to cut staff hair in return for donations. She has been raising money for The Oracle Head and Neck Cancer Research Charity in Oxford, and has so far raised £1,620!
Christmas Jumper Day
On Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, all over the country, thousands of people will be donning their daftest, most wonderful woollies – all for a great cause. Embracing our 'crazy on purpose' culture we were no exception! We had a great array of jumpers from flashing lights to a special 'twosie' jumper from our Matrix ladies! We managed to raise a fantastic £251.13 for the cause.
Mix 96 Toy Appeal
Local radio station Mix 96 help organise a toy appeal every Christmas to collect toys for children who may not be recieving presents over the festive period. The Salon Success team rallied together and put together an impressive collection, helping to contribute to the total 3,521 toys the appeal managed to collect!
Aylesbury Vineyard Storehouse
We were delighted to help out Aylesbury Vineyard Storehouse by donating several boxes of strong paper bags we no longer needed. The bags will be used by the food bank for families when they come to them for support during times of need, and were greatly appreciated by the Storehouse.
We supported DENS when they were short on personal care products by donating 8 boxes of shampoo and conditioner samples.
DENS are a fantastic charity and last year helped support over 500 throughout their Day Centre, Night Shelter and longer term housing projects.
In aid of Aylesbury Vineyard we held our very own Harvest festivel here at Shampoo HQ, taking in donations of gifts and selling off some old sample products to raise money. We are delighted to share we managed to raise a fantastic £271 and recieved a great range of donations to the harvest table! The Vineyard help feed people that are homeless and on low income in the local area and we were very happy to be able to help such a great cause!
