Salon Joy is leaving their footprint of creating beauty and spreading joy every chance they can. Here’s a glimpse from their media archive.
This Salon Is Giving Back (2020)
How A Small Town Salon Is Making A Big Difference
We might not be in the salon with our clients, but we can still be a positive light in our community by supporting one another and coming together (with safe distance, of course!) for a good cause. BTC community member Nichole Ann Londo (@nikkiannstyles), the proud owner of Salon Joy in Pennsylvania, reached out to us and shared how her community-based salon is giving back and spreading joy by hosting several events—and how your salon can too!
Access NEPA Best of Fan Favorites Nominee '20
Salon Joy at the S&H Plaza, 243 Route 435 in Gouldsboro, will collect non-perishable and canned foods, and paper towels, toilet paper, soap, body wash, etc., during weekdays this week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All items collected will be donated to the North Pocono Food Pantry.
Salon Owner Hopes to Fill Bus
The coronavirus closed Nichole Londo’s salon, so she opened the back of a school bus.
Londo expected to collect gently used prom dresses this month at Salon Joy in the S&H Plaza on Route 435 in Clifton Twp.
With schools closed and proms canceled, Londo sought another way to help her community.
Local Salon Owner Hold Community Food Drive
Many people are forced to stay home and not work during the coronavirus pandemic. This hasn’t stopped one local salon owner from helping her community.
Currently in Pennsylvania, all salons are closed. At Salon Joy, they want to help the community in any way they can.
“Normally during this time we’re doing a prom dress collection, but due to circumstances we’re unable to do the prom dress collection. One of my childhood friends reached out to me and said, normally you’d be doing something right now; why don’t you do a food drive,” said Nichole Londo, owner of Salon Joy.
Backpack Drive to Help Area Students (2019)
School might still be a distant thought for most area students, but it's on the radar already for workers at a hair salon in Lackawanna County.
Salon Joy in the S & H Plaza off Route 435 in the Gouldsboro area is hosting its second annual backpack drive now through August 17.
Owner Nichole Londo is spearing the event. Her goal is to fill 100 backpacks full of supplies and collect 100 new pair of sneakers for Kindergarten through eighth-grade students in need throughout the North Pocono School District.
2010 Free Back-To-School Haircuts
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Nichole Londo, a hairstylist and former cosmetology instructor at Erie 1 BOCES, is volunteering her time to provide free back-to-school haircuts for area kids on Tuesday, August 31, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Matt Urban Hope Center, 385 Paderewski Drive, near the Central Terminal.
"This is my second free cut event at the center this summer," says Londo. "I really just want to help the children have a great look for school."
