Panache, a St. Augustine and Julington Creek company with Aveda Lifestyle Store, Salon and Spas, will hold a fundraiser for St. Johns Riverkeeper on Sunday, April 15 from 10 am until 6 pm at the Julington Creek salon, 2758 Racetrack Road, #403 in Jacksonville.

Panache owner Kristy Weeks has committed to a day of $15 hair cuts and services including any haircut for men, women and children with full style and care consultation, shampoo and conditioning treatment, stress relieving head and neck treatment, haircut, blow-dry and style. Hair stylists from the St. Augustine and Julington Creek salon locations will be donating their time and expertise. Appointments are available and walk-ins will be welcomed. Families are invited to the event and refreshments will be served along with a remote, radio broadcast. 100 percent of event proceeds will be donated the St. Johns Riverkeeper, a local non-profit that works on behalf of the community for clean and healthy waters in the St. Johns River.

For more information and to schedule an appointment, call 904.209.1320. Visit the website at www.getpanache.com.

For close to 25 years, Weeks and her team of award winning salon and spa staff members have participated in a wide variety of community service activities to give back to the local community and to worldwide environmental initiatives. Weeks and her staff have challenged themselves to raising $4,000 during the event on April 15.

“We are fortunate to be able to give back to those in need and to our planet through the two highly successful salon and spa locations with a dedicated team of professionals and supportive customers,” Weeks said.

Weeks attributes the company’s success to salon and spa experts who regularly participate in company and industry events and business courses including specialized training at Aveda’s salon operations facilities in Orlando, St. Petersburg, Ft. Lauderdale and Tallahassee, Fla. Panache staff members study topics ranging from the top industry benchmarks to working with different generations in the workplace to client retention to network promoters, the importance of community service along with current trends and inspirations in salon and spa services.

Panache receives annual recognition from its customers as Best Full-Service Salon, Best Day Spa, Best Nail Salon, Massage Therapist and Best Stylist, plus several industry awards which uniquely positions the company as a leading salon and spa business. Weeks is recognized as a leader in the business community and one of the most innovative salon industry professionals in Northeast Florida.
