JOIN US AT ELEVATE SALON INSTITUTE(ESI) ROYAL OAK FOR SUMMER IN THE BUFF!

Pick up some cool summer gear and support a great cause.  From June 1st to August 1st we will be selling a fun and versatile summer stretchy scarf or “buff” like the ones you’ve seen on the tv show Survivor.  They can be worn more than a dozen different ways and are the perfect summer accessory!  They only cost $5 and all of the proceeds from your purchase go toward support of Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan. Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon is a local grassroots non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides wigs and support services at no charge to children and young adults experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and other disorders. Their wig recipients, also known as Ambassadors, range in age from 3 to 18, and are located throughout Michigan. Get them for you, a friend, and the kids and know that you are doing your part to support a great cause.
