January 2018 Blog

New Year’s means new beginnings and reminiscing on the wonderful memories we have made in 2017. Not only did Craig Stewart welcome several new team members, but we also celebrated 20 years in the Biz! We would like to take this time, after spending the Holidays with family and loved ones, to share our fondest memories, our accomplishments, and our ambitions for the upcoming year.
2017 has been a year of prosperity for the Craig Stewart Salon Team and we are excited to share some of our fondest memories as a team this year giving back to our Buckhead Community. We started our year off with a Day of Beauty for Cancer survivors through the Feel Beautiful Today foundation. This event was a huge success and we cannot wait to participate again in April 2018!
We are so excited and proud to share that in March 2017 we participated in Aveda’s Catwalk for Water. This charitable event raises money for clean drinking water in Atlanta in which we also raised funds for through Aveda’s Earth Month later in April. Not only did we successfully raise money for a cause that directly impacts our clean drinking water, but we also got the opportunity to have one of our very own walk in the Catwalk for Water Fashion Show! Jasmine walked in the fashion show in an outfit designed and made by her and out of all recycled materials.
There are several foundations we accepted donations for this past year to benefit causes that are near and dear to not only our hearts, but our clients hearts as well! These foundations include the Good Mews Cat shelter, One Warm Coat, and the Atlanta Humane Society. We are looking forward to finding more ways to help these organizations in the years to come.
As 2017 started to come to an end, we celebrated our 20 year anniversary! Not only was this a huge milestone for our small business, we also received Atlanta’s 2017 Small Business Excellence Award. We are so very proud of this award and have you, our clients, to thank. Without YOU this award would not have been possible.
The Craig Stewart Salon team was asked some questions reflecting back on 2017 and what they are looking forward to in the New Year. Here are some of the inspirational and blissful responses we got!:
“I had such a blast being a part of Aveda’s Catwalk for water! It was one of my favorite memories this past year. In 2018 I’m looking forward to the birth of my twins! =] “ - Jasmine, Front Desk Team
