First Night of Unique Salon VIP Night ‘You Beauty Salon Tour’ A HUGE Success at Gloss Beauty in Matamata!

You Beauty Tour

The ‘You Beauty Salon Tour’ is underway and the first date at Gloss Beauty Boutique in Matamata was a HUGE success!

The VIP night saw customers of Gloss Beauty be entertained with live music (from me), makeup demos from Rachael D’Aguiar and they had the opportunity to purchase one-night only special offers.

Gloss Beauty took in over $3500 sales for the night, and we raised around $500 for Look Good Feel Better women’s cancer charity.  A great result all round!

And to add to that the event got some great FREE media coverage for Gloss Beauty in the regional paper the Waikato Times and also a more local paper called the Matamata Chronicle….Priceless!

And if that wasn’t enough, at least half a dozen customers of Gloss Beauty gave a glowing video testimonial, all raving about how amazing the salon is!!!  Check out some of them below…

NZ Musician and WSM Director Chris Sanders, Touring Salons To Help Women with Cancer

Stadiums, town halls, pubs.  They’re your traditional music venues.  But salons?

Well, for NZ singer-songwriter Chris Sanders, he is about to embark on what could be called the world’s most unique music tour ever.  A tour of salons, and it’s all in the name of a good cause, women’s cancer support network ‘Look Good, Feel Better’. 

The Six date ‘You Beauty Salon Tour’ starting on May 17, will see Chris perform songs from his debut EP ‘Home Away From Home’ and material from his new album to be released later in 2013.

A veteran of over 1600 gigs, Chris (35) who has supported artists like Tim Finn, Dave Dobbyn and Anika Moa, will be donating ALL sales from his EP through iTunes to ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ throughout May.

Download this music and help it rank in the digital music charts and really raise awareness for these women who are living with cancer.

You can click here now to download songs from the EP ‘Home Away From Home’ with all money going to Look Good, Feel Better or click on the image below

All Sales of Chris’ EP ‘Home Away From Home’ will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, from now until May 31st 2013

With his other hat on, he is known within the salon business community as a ‘salon saviour’, having helped hundreds of salons from going out of business.  Think Tabatha, minus the swearing…

“It made sense for me to combine my musical gift and connection with the salon industry, to help an organisation that supports women with cancer restore and enhance their appearance before and after treatment” says Chris. “And as a former salon owner, I saw first hand how a good doll up can help the self esteem and confidence of our clients who were battling cancer.”

In addition to Chris donating all his iTunes sales, each salon on the tour is running an Exclusive Customer VIP night with fund raising activities, hair and beauty demos, special one night only offers and giveaways.

And Salon Finder iPhone & iPad app will also be donating 10c from every download of its FREE app throughout May as well.

Since 1992 Look Good Feel Better has run beauty workshops for New Zealand women to help them cope with the physical side effects of cancer treatment, such as drying flaking skin, hair loss and pigmentation changes, and will help more than 3000 women in 2013.

“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this very unique salon music tour and we really encourage people to download Chris’ music and attend one of the ‘You Beauty Tour’ events to help build awareness of our cause” says Look Good, Feel Better General Manager Yvonne Brownlie. “It means more women will find out about the support that is available to them or a friend who is dealing with cancer”.
