‘Blowouts + Brows’ Transitional Resources fundraiser December 13 at Ola Salon

One week from tonight, you’re invited! Here’s the announcement sent by Ola; Transitional Resources is a neighbor of theirs, with its headquarters just a few blocks south on Avalon Way:

On Tuesday, December 13 from 5:00-8:00 pm, West Seattle-based Ola Salon is offering blowouts and brow waxes for a suggested donation of $20, with all proceeds benefiting Transitional Resources, a neighborhood mental health center. Ola is located at 2942 Avalon Way SW, 206-933-6702.

Considered the best hair salon in West Seattle, Ola Salon is famous city-wide for its impeccable service and creative environment. Ola’s medical esthetician and stylists will be available for consultations throughout the event, in addition to providing blowouts and brow waxes. Salon owner Rachel Karlin annually organizes salon events to benefit local non-profit organizations, and this month’s Blowouts + Brows event is especially festive: Avalon restaurant will provide complimentary hors d’oeuvres and mimosas, and other local businesses will provide an assortment of goodies to raffle off throughout the night. Proceeds from the salon service donations and raffle ticket sales will benefit Transitional Resources.

Transitional Resources has been providing innovative and respective mental health care to residents of King County for 35 years. With a specialization in serving individuals with the most serious and persistent forms of mental illness, Transitional Resources offers a continuum of care that includes case management, crisis intervention, affordable housing, and vocational services.

As winter settles in and the days get shorter and colder, it is especially important that Transitional Resources have the support of its community, ensuring that clients have shelter during the cold months, along with the support they need to be successful. The Blowouts + Brows benefit will help make it possible for Transitional Resources to continue providing respectful, optimistic, and highly personalized care to those most in need. Without these services, people living with severe mental illness frequently end up in jail, back in the hospital, or on the streets. Transitional Resources offers them hope, opportunity, and recovery.

    What’s a blowout?

    A blowout is a service where you get you hair washed and sytled (blown dry). Many clients have this done if they are going out that evening or if they want a style that will last longer than if they styled it themselves. Lots of people get this done to make getting ready easier. A salon blowout will often keep your hair looking freshly sytled for many days.
