Oya Salon recently hosted a group of teens from Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County for a Teen Salon Day. Stylist gave each teen a fresh look with new haircuts, grooming tips and styling. One generous Club teen donated her hair to charity as a result. Our kids were taught the importance of looking neat and presentable, especially for school and careers. In coordination with Boys & Girls Club staff, teens have been working to put their best foot forward as the school year quickly approaches. Academic preparation, organizational preparation, and personal preparation ensure that the teens will be their most confident selves – important lessons for embarking on a new school or work endeavor.
“Through the generosity of Brian and Angolee Bode and the outstanding staff of Oya Salon, our teens are enjoying one key aspect of a “smart start” to back to school.” explained Nanci Perrochi, Teen Center Volunteer and coordinator for this event “Looking your best to be your best, which can be an empowering experience for all of us! What a special treat for these wonderful teens!”
Marlene Trotter-Murray, Unit Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County adds, “We were excited about this opportunity and we are looking forward to an ongoing partnership with Oya Salon.”
“We are honored to have the opportunity to educate the youth on the importance of looking your best, it is vital to success. When you look good you feel good, when you feel good you feel confident,” explains Brian Bode owner of Oya Salon.
Brian Bode also plans to come to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County in the Fall to talk to teens about his career and how he reached his goals. In the Spring, Brian will lead a round table discussion at the 2018 Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County Career Expo.
