Congratulations to Vickie Williams of Lake Stevens and Jena Werven of Lynnwood, both of whom received 3 figures worth of votes and came within 5 votes of each other! Based on their incredible stories and amazing outpouring of support in the form of votes, both seemed incredibly deserving of hair salon makeovers so, we decided to choose TWO winners! Thank you to all who nominated their mothers and thank you to ALL mothers everywhere for all that you do.


Vickie Williams

mom NEEDS! makeover
My mom is so ashamed of her looks this is the only current photo I could find. My mom let herself go after her son being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer...and her youngest daughter was discovered to have a brain tumor that was removed, and we found out recently it has returned. She takes care of all of us and I would just love to give her a fresh new rejuvenated look she deserves. She would absolutely love it!

Jena Werven

food drive fun
This is Jena my brother and me, she may not be our birth mom but stepped in to the role with our father when we needed a mom. My brother and I both have asperger's (so dad's helping me with this) so we can be a hand full but she treats us as normal kids and loves us no matter what. She has helped us learn how to deal with life's challenges, to care for others, and to make friends. She does charity work to help others year round with us and takes us to places to show us new things all the time. We don't have a lot but she makes sure my brother and I always have everything we need putting herself second. We would love to get her the makeover for mothers day to show her the love she has given us. Please pick her so we can say we love you mom and make here feel as special as she makes us feel.

Redken Symposium 2015

Redken Symposium 2015

We just returned from the Redken Symposium - our bi-annual chance to mingle and network with 10,000 other hair stylists and learn from Redken's best educators. The fun takes place every other year at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and is always a trip to remember. Over 20 of our stylists took Las Vegas by storm January 25-27 and gained a wealth of new hair styling knowledge as well as a bunch of great new memories. Be sure to ask us about the latest Redken trends we learned on your next visit.

Check out our Flickr album from the 2015 event.

We received a great e-mail of thanks from our friends at Locks and Love and thought this would be a great opportunity to show our appreciation as well for all of our guests who stopped in this past year to donate their hair to Locks of Love. Thank you so much for making a difference in these childen's lives.


I wanted to reach out and thank you for being such an incredible and vital part of Locks of Love! My name is Ashby Manson, and I am the current Volunteer Coordinator. Our organization would not be able to continue our mission without people, companies, and organizations like you that work so hard to support us through donations and events! Please know how thankful we are to have you. We wish you a very happy and successful 2015!

What is a great gift idea for mom?

(Published in the "What the Pros Know" section of a May 2012 edition of the Lake Stevens Journal.) Our Lake Stevens Salon Manager, Brittani, and her son, Noland

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Though moms are some of the most important women in our lives, we don’t always remember to appreciate them as we should. Let’s face it, our moms played a huge role in defining our values, our personality traits, even our looks! But for some crazy reason, we only truly celebrate their efforts one day a year. Don’t miss this opportunity to show your mom how much you love her by giving her an Elle Marie gift card!

For every $50 you spend on mom,
we’ll add an extra $10 of Elle Marie love as well!

That’s a $60 gift card for $50 or $120 for $100, etc.!

And if you want to buy extra cards to share your love with mom numerous times a year, that’s okay too! Add a comment
