May News from Studio 904 Hair Design

Hello Friends, we are entering the early summer season. Even though we are experiencing a trend of cooler weather, we can’t help wanting to get out of our dark and heavy winter clothing, right? It’s the same with our hair. Are you ready to step into a small style change in your hair to get ready for the warmer weather to come? We at Studio 904 embrace small changes that give you an uplift in your appearance and attitude as we enter a new season.

If you’ve been wanting to go short to get ready for the warmer weather but can’t quite commit to a bob or a shortcut, a layered softer bob is your perfect middle ground. This cut lets you take inches off without sacrificing all the length. It’s also a face-framing haircut that tends to flatter most hair types and face shapes and works if you want to simultaneously try new hair colors. Another huge plus? Unlike the classic bob, it allows for updo flexibility. That being said, there are numerous ways to cut and style a softer bob. We asked our stylist Jackie to share some of her favorite options.

“When I’m cutting a layered bob, I take into consideration the neckline length first. A lot depends on the growth pattern of hair in that area.  The amount of layering I do depends on the client’s face shape and the type of hair she has. I love this cut because it gives a lighter look to the traditional bob cuts. Some styling products I like to use are Aveda’s Confixor and Texture Cream that adds hold and shine to the hair”. – Jackie

Update on the Ukraine Dog Rescue Fundraiser

Thank you for purchasing the beautiful hand-made paper cranes and donating $10. towards this worthwhile fundraiser.  We are happy to report that your donations are helping us to get closer to the fundraising goal of $1,000! We can hardly wait to send out donations to Betty White’s favorite rescue organization, American Humane to help with their rescue efforts to save animals who have been injured and left homeless in the middle of war zones in Ukraine.  Are we going to quit after $1,000? Heck no, we plan to keep this fundraiser going until we raise another $1,000.

Where did the idea of the folded peace crane come from?

Please read Sadako’s story…

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

Sadako was two years old when the United States dropped the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on Aug. 6, 1945. Although she survived the horrific attack, Sadako developed leukemia from the radiation diagnosed as atomic bomb disease. 

While in the hospital, Sadako began folding paper cranes. She was inspired to do so by the Japanese legend that one who created a thousand origami cranes would be granted a wish. Her wish was to live in a peaceful world. 

She exceeded her goal of 1,000 cranes and died having folded 1,400 birds. The Japanese government continues to gift Sadako’s cranes to countries around the world as a token of her unfulfilled dream for world peace.
