Our one year anniversary is fast on our heels. We couldn’t be more grateful for all the love and support we’ve received. This Spring brings warmer weather and many fresh changes to the salon as well. Elizabeth and I beam when clients come in and comment on how everything has been moved around/changed again. This business and specifically the space should always be growing and evolving. We work very hard to keep it “breathing” - never becoming set in our ways, resting on our laurels. We keep setting, clearing and resetting the bar daily.
Unite has been consistently breaking new ground in product creation. What they will be bringing to us (and to you) is education. Ongoing education for our stylists is crucial for our continued growth. The opportunity to send our staff to California for full immersion education at Unite’s Academy is…. well, we’re beside ourselves with excitement. I know that my time in NYC at Bumble and bumble has been invaluable to my career- and I thank my lucky starts everyday for the skill and perspective that came with those trips.
But in the meantime, what does this mean for you, Model Citizens? Some seriously kick ass hair products!
We’ve been playing this week with Unite’s U-Luxury (argan oil) line. The shampoo and conditioner make your hair feel soft as a child’s (ie before you started “playing” with color). One of our, ahem, “frequent color” client’s was kind enough to post this to our facebook wall,
One of the other standouts that we’ve fought each other over is the Go 365 hairspray. It is 3 strengths in one can!!! The nozzle is adjustable! (shutthefrontdoor!) Light, Medium and Heavy hold- IN ONE CAN!
Spring is in the air, we’re feelin the love- and excited for what is coming around the bend! xoxo Athens, you’re tops!
We’re over the moon to be hosting the lovely and oh so talented Amy Flurry and her next DIY PR workshop, here at Model Citizen, Monday March 18th. See you then!

THIS is ELYSE! She is our newest stylist! We love her and we know you will too! Come see her tomorrow for a free relaxing shampoo and super gorgeous blow dry and style. YAY! We love you!
HAIR LAB IS LAUNCHING in FEBRUARY! We are looking for some ladies willing to let us experiment! This month it’s all about the STRAIGHT RAZOR! Long and loose, flowy, easy peasy layers. Soft and sassy bobs. Are you ready and willing??
Shayne has been to every cutting class Bumble and bumble offers and was/is inspired by the beauty that such a simple tool can create, (in the right hands of course.)
Model Citizen Salon is excited to team up with BreastFest Athens to raise money for the fight against breast cancer and to promote breast health in our community! We are looking for courageous, fabulous men and women willing to shave their heads for our Second Annual Shave to Save! campaign, in honor of those battling breast cancer.
The “mane” event (the actual shaving of heads!) will take place the week of BreastFest, with all money raised going to BreastFest Athens for St. Mary’s Women’s Diagnostic Center. That’s RIGHT! Money raised in Athens, STAYS in Athens!
So, HOW CAN I HELP? Volunteer to have your head shaved! Your hair will be donated to Locks of Love and you will be honored and revered at one of the funnest events of the year (BreastFest!).
Here’s what you do: Register to be one of our Brave and Beautiful Baldies, collect a minimum of $500 in donations from friends, family, coworkers and anyone else who would like to see your shiny noggin, receive support and encouragement from us as you go, and then get ready to be shorn!
