Beautiful You by Profile began operations in June 2014 when the owner of Profile Salon and the Salon Coordinator felt the inspiration to give back to the community on an elevated level. After learning of a salon in Long Island, New York that opens its door to women in active cancer treatment, Profile Salon decided this concept needed to be implemented in our local community. This began the process of creating our own program, Beautiful You by Profile.
The mission of Beautiful You is to provide support, comfort, confidence and joy during the difficult time of cancer treatment. Beautiful You by Profile opens its doors the second Monday of each month and dedicates this day to providing complimentary salon services to women and children with cancer. Beautiful You offers full services on this day, including haircuts, scalp treatments, spa services and cosmetics.
Our desire at Beautiful You is to nurture the wellness of our clients, the whole person, physically, mentally, and spiritually. In doing so, we believe our clients leave with more confidence and a larger support system. These women are not coming in solely as cancer patients. They come into the salon as our clients and leave as our friends.
Beautiful You strives to fill a gap in the community for our women affected with cancer. Although women with cancer in our community receive exceptional medical treatment, it is the personal wellness services that are most often given up. We strive to fulfill this gap by providing women the ability to feel good about themselves inside and out in a community of support. Beautiful You does this with no cost to our clients to relieve any stress attached to what is already an overwhelming financial burden.
In June 2014, Beautiful You opened its doors and provided services to 10 women undergoing cancer treatment. In June 2017, Beautiful You had more than 65 women. All told, we are blessed to have provided professional salon services to more than 300 women with cancer.
