I just heard about this great salon in the Denver area that is going way above and beyond the call of duty in the services they offer.
While cutting the hair of a military wife who's husband had just returned from the Middle East that same day, the owners of Phoebe Therese Salon, decided they wanted to give back to the military community.
In an effort to recognize the sacrifice that not only the troops, but the spouses also make, this salon is opening their doors (and their hearts) on a day of the week they're normally closed to the public.
Spouses and women in the military have the opportunity to get their hair cut, colored and styled one Sunday every quarter. Tipping would be optional and appreciated, however, this service is free and requires no spending.
The offer is primarily for service wives of deployed husbands but also includes recently returned husbands, enlisted and commissioned service women scheduled for deployment (or have recently returned), and Gold Star Wives.
The purpose is to provide a service they might consider but cannot necessarily afford. The owners want them to know they are appreciated for the hard work and the stress they live with.
"It's a day just for them," co-owner Therese told me.
If you would like to take part in this generous opportunity, they ask that you call the salon to get on the list so that their hairstylists know how many people to expect.
The number is 303-757-7940 and they are located at 3037 E. 3rd Avenue Cherry Creek North Denver, CO 80206. Parking is free on Sunday.
The next date is March 11, and they still have several spots available. They open their doors at 9:30 a.m.
