Love your Locks? Locks of Love does!

If you are ready for a change now is a great time to do it! What a better way to revamp your look than by rocking a stylish bob, and for a good cause too.

At Haven we support Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that helps financially disadvantaged children under 21 in the United States and Canada who suffer from long term hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love provides much more than a wig to children who are in need. Their mission statement tells of the support they provide:

Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence, and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children.

Each donated ponytail must be at least 8″ in length and be non-highlighted. Hair that has been colored will be accepted. We will send the hair to Locks of Love for any Haven guest that chooses to donate. Once the hair has been received you will receive a certificate in the mail.

Let us help you take a  step towards a new look and the good feelings you will receive when you donate your hair. Call 920-339-1111 to schedule your haircut today.

How to Have the Hair of a Spring Break Goddess

Spring break season is fast approaching, whether you are jet setting across the country or staying close to home you can master the look of spring break hair with these tips from Haven stylist, Courtney Wunder.

“Bumble and bumble surf spray is the key, ” reveals Courtney “you can use the product  after you shower or hop out of the pool or ocean to give yourself a style without effort.”

When you’re on the beach the last thing you want to do is spend hours in front of the mirror flat ironing your locks. Surf spray is easy — leave it in your beach bag so it’s always handy.

“Take your towel and give your hair a little scrunch,” says Courtney, “Then apply 10-15 sprays of the Bb. surf spray and you’re good to go.” This style gives your hair a tousled, beach worthy look.

Ready to go out at night? You can reactivate your wave using a few sprays of Bb. prep and drying your hair with a diffuser. Your hair will remember the style it was in earlier but with the help of the diffuser will also give it added volume and extra sass!

Don’t be stuck on vacation worrying about your hair, bathe in the sun knowing that you have the style of a Spring Break Goddess.

Concealed Carry

Concealed Carry is a hot topic in Wisconsin right now. Regardless of how you feel about the concealed carry weapon status, this is one concealer tip we think you’ll love.

On the nights you just didn’t get enough sleep, perhaps partied a little too hard the night before, or are just unfortunately blessed with dark circles under your eyes the Circle Delete from Jane Iredale will be your best friend.

Circle Delete is perfect for those who wear make up on the daily, only for special occasions, or prefer to be au natural.

The two tone color combination allows you to camouflage your pesky under eye circles. Start blending from the corner of your eye to wear your circles are the darkest. Bleeding the two colors together conceals your dark circles so you can carry on with your day.

Circle delete is available in 3 different colors (each compact contains 2 shades). We suggest using Jane Iredale’s Camouflage brush for best results.

So go ahead, conceal and carry the Jane Iredale way.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’ ” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On this day we honor the service and life mission of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by remembering the passion he had for helping others and bettering our community, then adopting this goal as our own.

At Haven we are so thankful for the opportunities we have to serve not only our guests, but also our community. We are blessed to have the change to make a difference each day, no matter how big or small our impact may be.

We are eager to continue to serve your salon, spa, and wellness needs on a daily basis, we are also looking forward to the upcoming charity events we are participating in.

On February 10 Haven will be participating in the St. Norbert College Men’s Hockey Game “Red Out” benefiting the American Heart Association. Haven has done much work with the Heart Association in the past including participating as a Heart Walk team, raising money for the non-profit organization, and participating in the annual “Wear Red Day.” To join Haven in the fight against heart disease, our Nation’s No. 1 killer, attend the SNC Red Out on Feb. 10, 7:00pm at Cornerstone Ice Arena.

Golden House Gifts

Community is important to Haven. We try to give back to the community that supports us year round. Currently we are collecting donations for Golden House, a local shelter for domestic abuse victims.

Golden House offers many services besides just a live-in residency, which helps to positively impact the lives of many women, men, and children in our area. Safety and education about domestic violence abuse prevention are core staples in Golden House’s work.

Get Goldwell Glam

Yesterday, the stylists at Haven participated in a private, in-salon training session with Chris Hitchcock from Goldwell. The stylists refreshed their knowledge of the color line we use at Haven in addition to learning about Goldwell’s recent additions: New blondes and Cool browns.

“I love the shine, the wide range of colors, and the opportunities to create so many different looks that Goldwell provides” says Liza Thibodeau, master stylist at Haven.

During this training session the stylists learned how the New blonde color works to “break the base” of someone’s natural color to make their highlights pop even more.

This service is an express root retouch that takes only 5 minutes so any one’s rocking blonde highlights can be even more glam.

The Cool brown collection has three new shade families: pearly couture browns, matte couture browns, and smokey couture browns. Cool browns are in this season, Goldwell has perfectly mixed a variety of colors to help our stylists match the perfect brown for you.

Haven, Part of your Community

Hello Haven friends!

It’s no secret that we love make-up, hair products, and fashion trends at Haven. Like most others, we also love Starbucks.

We are excited to share with you that Starbucks has partnered with the Opportunity Finance Network for the “Let’s Create Jobs for USA” campaign.

This campaign is awesome because for each “indivisible” bracelet purchased for a donation of $5 or more at Starbucks, 100% of the donation funds the creation and sustainability of jobs in communities across America.

Read what Howard S., Starbucks chairman, president, and chief executive officer has to say:

Supporting thriving communities – inside our stores and in the neighborhoods where we live and work – is at the heart of our mission. And being a good neighbor has never been more important as the global economy continues to weather a painful and challenging period.

Here in the U.S., we are starting to help fuel the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Starbucks is teaming up with the Opportunity Finance Network® (OFN) to help create and sustain jobs through a program we are calling Create Jobs for USA, which will provide loans to underserved community businesses. The Create Jobs for USA program will be seeded with a $5 million contribution from the Starbucks Foundation.

On behalf of the Create Jobs for USA fund, Starbucks is introducing the “Indivisible” wristband in our U.S. stores and online starting Nov. 1 for donors who contribute $5 or more to OFN’s Create Jobs for USA fund. One hundred percent of donations go directly to OFN to provide grants to community development financial institutions for underserved community businesses committed to creating and sustaining jobs.

Together, we can create opportunity, inspire confidence and help build our collective economic future. To learn how you can get involved, please join us at Source: Starbucks

Loans for small businesses, microenterprises, non profit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing will be funded with this campaign.

Why does Haven want to create more opportunities for small businesses? We believe in the power that small businesses have in the community to make a difference.

Love Who You Are

Haven is not only concerned with helping our guests stay on the top of the beauty industry, we want everyone who walks in our doors to be proud of who they are.

Living in a world full of media messages that tell women how we should dress and what the ideal body type is limits our individual expression and love for ourselves.

At Haven we do not believe that everyone needs to look, dress, or think the same. We love sharing helpful beauty tips so women can let their wonderful insides shine through for everyone to see. Beauty is not only about how you look, but also it’s about how you feel. If you feel empowered let that show!

We hope that our staff at Haven always helps you to show off your unique style.

Check out the Sundance documentary for Miss Representation premiering October 20 at 8c on OWN.

Miss Representation brings together some of America’s most influential women in politics, news and entertainment, including Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem to give audiences an inside look at the media’s message and depiction of women. The film explores women’s under-representation in positions of power by challenging their limited and often disparaging portrayals in the media. Miss Representation takes the stand that the media is portraying women’s primary values as their youth, beauty and sexuality – rather than their capacity as leaders.

Premieres Thursday, October 20th at 9/8c, only on OWN.
