Hair Donation to BeYOUtiful Foundation
May 9th, 2019
Today my friend Amanda came in to donate her hair for the second time! Each time we have taken over 10inches of of her hair. The first time was 5 years ago! This time Amanda was donating her hair to honor her Aunt Cheli. Below is a description of the foundation via their website
BeYOUtiful Foundation, or at least the idea, started a few years ago on a vacation, we all took to Maui. The discussions on what we could do, how we could do it, flowed through the entire trip. Well, like most of you, when you get back from vacation sometimes life gets in the way. Fast forward three years to Riawna and Nikki waking up to an email from me written in the middle of the night. Finally realizing it was in front of us the entire time, I knew exactly what we could do. It was an outline – a rough draft but the response was YES! How do we do this and when do we start?! Fueled by creativity, compassion and desire to do for others, the three of us have established the BeYOUtiful Foundation.
Riawna and Nikki are the creators of Nine Zero One Salon and all their affiliated brands. Successful and driven is the understatement of the century, but their hearts for others is what truly sets them apart. The self-awareness and willingness to give back, in an official way, will be another shining example of what hard work can provide. With a background in philanthropic social outreach and business development over the last 10 years, I feel like the luckiest human to have landed here. The opportunity to lead this foundation, with two women that I admire so much, is a dream.
With that said, BeYOUtiful Foundation isnʼt about us, it’s about something bigger, itʼs about unity. Itʼs about taking action, doing more and loving people when they need it the most. Excited to have each one of you part of the family, thereʼs no way to do this alone, please help us prove that weʼre #bettertogether.
The program that Amanda will be donating her hair to is called BeYOUTiful Hair, which is a hair donating program . I love that she taught me about a new foundation for hair donation, I have heard so many different things over the years about different programs and its nice to now have a place that I can directly send hair to, or have a place to send clients to for more information.

“We love by how we give”. There is nothing more true than this statement, it defines everything about our foundation. Our BeYoutiful Hair program is the perfect opportunity to take action and make a difference. Our hair donation and wig creation process takes place in the heart of Los Angeles. With our hand selected group of beauty professionals, we make sure that all donated hair goes straight to the cause. We’re committed to making sure every little girl, young lady, business woman and/or supermom gets the support she needs. Your own contribution of hair or having your clients chop off theirs makes this program possible. Together we can make sure that every woman has the opportunity to feel absolutely beYOUtiful.
