Restore Salon Services is an organization that was founded to help empower healing through the art of hairstyling. Restore Salon Services provides haircutting and hairstyling services by licensed cosmetologist to individuals and their circle of care, that cannot make it to a salon. We hope to empower as many individuals and their families as we possibly can. There is an amazing power in a haircut and the human touch provided when giving that haircut. Our goal is to not only RESTORE confidence and power in a challenging time, but most of all to RESTORE a sense of self care and love for the people we service. We will come to you in you wherever our service is needed - your home, a hospital, school, rehab - and provide services for the entire family and/or care providers.
Where We Started
Richard Cornish, our Founder and Executive Director, Saw a need for haircare services for kids and their families and caregivers that are in the hospital or are unable to make it to a salon. Richard was drawn to the Volunteer services Department at CHOP where he met Stefanie Groff, who is the mastermind behind creating a paid position, and hiring the very first stylist for one of the most prominent hospitals in the country, Amy Moore led the program to receiving one of the CEO’s biggest gifts of discretionary funds at her disposal to our program.
We came together and saw that this healing and affirming service provides power to the often powerless, and RESTORES a sense of self love and healing for the whole family unit. This is a roving service that meets this population and the LGBTQIA population where you are, and we provide these services for no charge at all to the kids and their circle of care.
