A story of giving!

BCC Staff are enjoying unpacking a box of donated items
from Surface Hair! They'll repack and send to hairdressers impacted
by the Camp fire.
I don't know how many of you know this, but Beauty Care Choices is a northern California company.  This past year we have been devastated by wildfires surrounding us; even having to evacuate ourselves during the Carr fire.  But the worst fire, the Camp fire, absolutely destroyed the town of Paradise (just to the southeast of us).  No homes, no businesses, but the will to rebuild. We wanted to help in a personal way, so we posted on our Facebook page.

📣ATTN Nor Cal Hairdressers: If you have lost your tools of trade in the #CAMPFIRE or #CarrFire we want to help you rebuild! We have shears, drapes, capes, bowls, foils, clips, combs, brushes, hot tools, shampoos, conditioners and more to help you get back to the thing you love to do. Please DM us with what you need and we will assist in getting it to you.

We really appreciate all of our brands stepping up to help the beauty professionals in our area. Also a huge thank you to all of our customers who have reached out to check on us.

Giving a hand up, instead of a hand out motivated us.  You can't rebuild a town if the people are unable to restore their business and begin making a living again.  Our post was shared and shared and as a result we have 20 hairdressers needing help to begin again.  Their stories left us heartbroken.

But this isn't about us.  We aren't the heroes of this story...only the organizer.  We reached out to our manufacturers and vendors for their help in supplying the products and tools these hairdressers needed and, thanks to them, we were able to send out a first box of supplies to each of the hairdressers and another is on its way.

So, this story is to thank our vendors for their generosity in helping these beauty industry persons get back on their feet, including:
  • Salon Tech
  • Loma Organic
  • Kenra Professional
  • Goldwell US
  • Surface Hair
  • Matrix Professional
  • Schwarzkopf (Henkel)
  • KMS
  • Wella Profressional
Our box from Surface Hair
