Grassroots hosted it’s second “A Day Off ” Event. This event focused on giving people with a life-threatening or chronic illness, “A Day Off” from managing self-care. Each guest received a complimentary haircut/style or scalp massage with essential oils, hand massage and a make-up application. Many local small businesses, clients of Grassroots and staff generously made donations to help fund the event and to help with purchasing items to fill the gift bags that were given to each participant. First English Lutheran Church provided beautiful hand-made prayer shawls for everyone. The Grassroots Compassion team donated their time and services at the event. There were many smiles, laughter and new friendships that were fostered that day. Here are some pictures that were taken of some of the beautiful woman we had the opportunity to meet that day:
Early this month Grassroots stylists: Angie Kustic, Kara Schuh, Scott Richards, Tracey Drews and Jody Fulcer participated in the event Fashion on the Fox.

We recently posted information about the new Keratin Complex Straightening System that our Grassroots stylist, Angie Kustic, has been recently providing at the salon. Here are a few testimonials from some of Angie’s client who have had the opportunity to experience Smoother, Straighter, and Shinier hair.
“I am extremely satisfied with the Keratin Straightening I received at Grassroots a Salon. My hair has never been more manageable…and more gorgeous! I never use my flat iron anymore and the straightening has increased the longevity of my color as well as the integrity of my hair. Thank you Grassroots, I plan on continuing to get my hair straightened!” Jami Krueger
“The Keratin Complex treatment is amazing, it’s turned my curly, dry, course hair into a smooth, sleek look. And yes, I’m saving hours of standing in front of the mirror with my rolling brush, hair dryer and flatiron.
The end result is shiny, healthy and easy to manage straigth hair. The appointment for the treatment was simple and Angie was great at answering all my questions and explaining how to take care of my hair, and how to use the accompanying shampoo and conditioner. It’s so easy and worth it….wish I could’ve done something like this year’s ago (while my children were infants). Oh well, now it’s glam time-the easy way-thanks Grass Roots A Salon!” Michele Lipschultz
If you would like more information on the Keratin Complex Straightening Treatment please call the salon @ (920) 730-3799, and receive a free consultation with stylist, Angie Kustic.
New Year’s Eve has always been a time of looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. Instead of making endless resolutions to ourselves that we make year after year. Some of our clients decided to take a different approach by giving themselves a new look, a fresh start, as they began there year. Check out these fabulous transformations.
