What does Fashion Week look like translated to style?

"NEXT," a hair couture show and benefit presented by Salon Ethos, will show you! Salon Ethos stylists are taking the trends from Fashion Week around the world and translating them into amazing looks… lace gowns inspire lacy-looking hair, unexpected structures become "blades" of energy, and fantasies of ruffles inform extraordinary styles. Don't miss this benefit for Stylists Helping Youth with Mental Illness (SHYMI) on October 10 at Studio 150 in Aquarium Village; doors open at 6:30 p.m.

"We're going to entertain the audience in a way they may not have experienced with fashion in the past," says salon owner Liz Rose-Worman. "The emotions inspired by haute couture inform these styles as well."

Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and desserts from local restaurants, a no-host bar, and full showcase of fashion. Admission is $39 for premium seating, $29 for general seating. Guests can purchase raffle tickets for Redken and Pureology gift baskets, each worth more than $175 (need not be present to win). Please feel free to bring a guest, and order tickets through Salon Ethos by Oct. 3 at 541-574-4445 or info@salon-ethos.com.

All net proceeds – including admission and bidding in the silent auction – directly benefit the nonprofit Stylists Helping Youth with Mental Illness (SHYMI) foundation in support of mental health services for local youth.

"We're so excited to be able to support local organizations who have unmet needs in this area of care," Rose-Worman explained. "We've also decided to provide scholarships at Bright Horizons Therapeutic Riding Center here in Lincoln County – they offer therapeutic services to people suffering from a wide range of mental, developmental and emotional disorders." SHYMI will also help to fund a relief nursery for Olalla Center in Toledo, a mental health facility for children and their families that has been helping children with severe mental illness since the early 1970s.

Salon Ethos presents the benefit and show with the help of Casey Miller of Ocean18, Brian Timme of Ultrasonic DJs, Danielle Emerick of Oregon Coast Event Rentals, and choreographers Marc Maislen and Mary Eastman, among many others.

You can purchase tickets for this event here. Thank you.



Salon Ethos charity foundation Stylists Helping Youth with Mental Illness (SHYMI)

In September 2013, Salon Ethos owner Liz Rose-Worman established a non-profit foundation, Stylists Helping Youth with Mental Illness (SHYMI), in support of mental health services for local youth.

The foundation is fiscally sponsored by the Lincoln County Foundation to
(http://www.lincf.org/), a non-profit corporation established in 1965
serve as an agency to receive and administer funds and other property
contributed for any civic, educational, charitable or religious purpose,
and particularly to assist, encourage and promote the welfare and well
being of the youth of Lincoln County, Oregon.

"I feel that mental illness carries a social and societal stigma," Rose-Worman
explained. "This disease wears so many different faces, and people who
don't know anything about it except its name fear it. That fear, which I
believe is based on ignorance, gets in the way of responding effectively to
those who suffer from mental illness. I believe that education is the key to
changing te way those who suffer from mental illness - and those who love
them - live and thrive."

SHYMI board members include Liz Rose-Worman, Barbara Dougherty,
Shannon Helmricks, Julie Buck, Shirley Hanes and Amanda Greene.

Consider a charitable gift to Stylists Helping Youth with Mental Illness (SHYMI),
in support of mental health services for local youth. Donations directly benefit
this effort.
