A fun day of hair, make up, and celebrating life.

Balance Hair Spa was a proud sponsor again this year of the Unite For HER annual fundraiser, Bloom. Held at the Merion Gulf Club this last Sunday, April 22nd. Our team of beauty professionals were honored to donate their time and style the cancer survivors and those who stood by HER side through breast cancer. These women then were pampered in a fashion show all for raising money for charity. This was our 3rd year as a sponsor for Unite For HER. 

Our Style-a-thon was a huge success

On Friday March 16th our team of beauty professionals hosted a style-a-thon to help raise money for a local business owner who has come down with a rare stomach disease called Gastroparesis. Along with our online GoFundMe page we were able to raise more than $3,800. to help pay for her medical bills. We thank all the local businesses and everyone who gave their time and money for a good cause. 

Balance Hair Spa raises money for Salon & Spa Relief Fund

This month we are raising money for The Salon & Spa Relief Fund. This non-profit organization was established in 2005 to help salon & spa owners, and their employees rebuild after a natural disaster. After the string of hurricanes that have hit our country recently, we are wanting to help others in our industry who may have lost everything. 
There are two ways you can help us raise money. You can make a donation in our salon and receive a complimentary hand massage with one of our team members using the AVEDA Hand Relief or you can visit the site below and make an online donation. 
Thank you for anything you can do to help.

Balance Hair Spa sponsors LGBT fundraiser for Phoenixville High School Gay Straight Alliance

We were so honored to have sponsored such a great event. The LGBTea dance was held on Sunday June 7th at the Wyndham Garden Exton Valley Forge right across the street from our Exton location. The proceeds for the event went to help sponsor a Gay Straight Alliance and help bring more awareness to issues related to high school and sexual orientation. At the fundraiser our staff were able to meet some of the kids who will benefit from this support. They were so appreciative of our support and shared with us some of their experiences.
