Local Stylist Gives Back to Her Community

Eryn Harrison, owner of Calm, A Salon, a full service hair salon in Oakland, California, hosted a mother and daughter braiding event recently as a fundraiser for Corpus Christi School to help raise funds for tuition aid.

Eryn, who attended Corpus Christi says, "I have made my living in Oakland working for local stores and at the former Hair Tailor Salon in Montclair and then opening my salon nine years ago on Piedmont Avenue. I wanted to give back to the community that has supported me and given me the opportunity to send my daughters to the school where I was educated."

Guests of the event, assisted by some of Calm's talented staff, were taught everything from basic braiding to the more popular styles of today's young girls while also learning how to maintain braids and keep the hair healthy. "While this was a teaching workshop 'doing hair' is a common bond between moms and daughters and an opportunity to spend one-on-one time with each other," she adds.
