Earth Month!

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd and raises awareness and brings communities together to give our planet it needs. This year marks Earth Day’s 45th anniversary and it is still going strong! There are multiple festivals and rallies that occur throughout Earth Month, but we ought to be helping our planet year round.

Even the smallest difference can make a huge impact for our world!

Here are five examples and ways that you can make a difference for not only Earth Month, but for the entire year:

Update light bulbs
Don’t worry; this does not have to be a huge home project! Even changing one light bulb in your home from an old one to a new compact fluorescent bulb will help.

Recycle glass
If glass is not recycled, it can take a million years to decompose! Recycled glass helped reduce air and water pollution.

Decrease shower time 
By just taking two minutes off of your shower routine, you can conserve ten gallons of water.

Use cruise control
Let’s use that fancy button in our cars! When cruise control is on, your vehicle can get up to 15% better gas mileage.

Pay bills online
If everyone paid their bills online instead of getting paper copies, we’d save 18.5 million trees every year, 2.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and 1.7 billion pounds of solid waste.

Rochester Fashion Week Fun

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

Recap: Fashion Week of Rochester 2015

In October, Rochester celebrated the fifth annual Fashion Week of Rochester. (Yes, that was a while ago now. We know we’re late…but better late than never, right?)

Fashion Week of Rochester is a fundraiser for the Center for Youth, which provides services such as counseling, shelter, referrals, and education to youth who want to take responsibility for their lives. To date, the event has raised more than $300,000!

Another goal of the organizers was to create a friendly and truly accessible event that the entire community could enjoy. Because of the good it does, and how it brings the community together, trü salon was proud to be involved in another successful Fashion Week of Rochester!

On Wednesday, we welcomed 20 models at our Park Avenue location and prepared them—hair and makeup—for the High Tea, High Fashion show. Held in the Sibley Tea Room on the top floor of the Sibley Building downtown, the show a sight to see, with models and dogs gracing the runway beautiful shoes and clothes—and doggie fashions, too!

On Friday, we hosted a second group of models in preparation for Fashion by the Books, which was held at the historic Rundel Memorial Library. This wonderful show featured grandparents & grandchildren, twins, and “Silver Foxes” on a European runway.

At trü salon, it is always important to us to give back. Fashion Week of Rochester was a great opportunity to be a part of our community, showcase our skills, and foster camaraderie between our two salon locations. It was wonderful to see so many families, individuals and businesses come together for such a good cause, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.
