The kids are finished school and now you need to maintain a good hair style. Styling our kids’ hair is so much fun, but sometimes we just run out of ideas!

The summer season is here. The sound of children’s excitement can be heard for miles. Yes, school is out for summer! Did you know, however, that over the course of those two short months of summer break, students lose, on average, between 20-30% of what they learned during the previous school year? This Summer Learning Loss leads to more difficulty in the next school year when new concepts continue to build on these lost ones.
