January is National Blood Donor Month and Garnish Hair Studio recognizes the lifesaving contribution blood and platelet donors make to modern healthcare. Through the month of January Garnish will be honoring blood donors with a chance to win a $100 gift certificate.  After you donate blood, bring your proof of donation (ask for a receipt after your donation) into Garnish, and we will then enter your name into the drawing. A winner will be picked at random on February 1st.

Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types AB, O, B negative and A negative. Help save lives by donating blood. Your blood donation could save your life or someone you care about!

Here are the important facts why donating blood is so important:

  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
  • A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S.
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O.
  • The blood used in an emergency is already on the shelves before the event occurs.
  • Sickle cell disease affects more than 70,000 people in the U.S. About 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year. Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives.
  • More than 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.
  • A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood.

Each year Garnish Hair Studio holds our “New Year – New You” contest. Last year’s winner was Diane Rish. Diane was kind enough to share her transformation story for 2015.

“I was first introduced to Garnish Studio in 2012 through my good friend Kristi Jones. I was new to the area, having moved to Raleigh for work in September 2012. I had never had done much with my hair before – just a standard trim from time to time, but never really anything beyond that. When I mentioned to Kristi that I had an interest in trying out hair extensions to help grow my hair out, Kristi immediately recommended Candice. It must have been fate – from the very first moment I learned about Candice and her work, I was hooked! Candice is a masterful talented with a dedication and passion for what she does.

Candice set me up for an initial consultation for hair extensions in early 2013, and several weeks later I was having my first set of extensions done. I was so nervous, but I was instantly thrilled by the results! Since then I have been a regular at Garnish studio, absolutely loving Candice’s masterful work and the vibe and atmosphere of her studio. Her team is amazing and always welcoming!

 In early 2015, I learned that I had been selected as Garnish studio’s New Year New You contest winner! I was stunned I had been selected! I had an incredible and memorable experience. As part of the New Year New You package, I received incredible eyelash extensions by the skillful Love at Lash. Her work helped to make my eyes instantly more dramatic and stunning. Several days later, I had a one-on-one style consultation with Dustin Bryd of Sharp & Timeless Image Consultants. He is an amazing talent with an incredible eye for style! He conducted a personalized style analysis that he later used to hand select several pieces from JCrew that suit my style that I can wear throughout the year and look stylish and sharp. I met with Dustin who conducted a personal style consultation at JCrew – Garnish generously offered a $250 gift card for JCrew that I used to purchase several garments to add to my wardrobe, including a blazer, jeans, and shoes.

 Next, I visited Garnish studio to have my hair done by Candice, who selected a gorgeous Balayage color treatment for my hair that left my hair with radiant highlights and a golden glow. She also masterfully crafted a beautiful halo that allows me to beautifully extend my hair on a regular basis with minimal upkeep. Finally, I had a phenomenal photo shoot experience that brought together the full experience. There, I got my makeup artistically done by Joanne Maye and then fun and beautiful photos taken by Amber Robinson, which included several one-of-a-kind updos crafted by Candice and Andrayah< during various stages of the photo shoot based on their innovative style and creativity.

I was blown away by her generosity! Candice’s talent and dedication is what keeps me coming back to Garnish every time! Thank you Candice and Garnish Studio for this truly memorable and once in a lifetime experience!”
