We Are Honored!

Planet HairWe’re excited to announce that we’ve been selected to two very big honors! We’re being honored by the Wichita Arts Council  for their Arts Advocate Group or Business. We’ve also been selected by the Wichita Business Journal as one of ten 2016 honorees for the small-business Best Places to Work for the second year in a row!

The Arts Council award is for an organization or business that is dedicated to furthering the cause of an art form or the arts in general through promotional, volunteer, administrative, legislative or professional efforts. We were selected for this award for the extravagant fashion shows the Planet Hair team have created, benefiting charity and arts organizations. From 1993 to 2012, we produced the ArtAID event, raising over $1.5 million to help people living with HIV and AIDS in our community get resources, education and support. The event included a live and silent auction, made possible through the contributions from the area’s top visual artists and art patrons. Our team created elaborate hair styles, make-up, and costuming and incorporated the talent of local and national dancers, musicians, and actors, to create a show that was entertaining and breathtakingly beautiful.

Since retiring from ArtAID, we’ve continued to be active in our community, creating hairstyles and wigs, costumes and choreography for artistic runway shows benefiting charity and arts organizations. We helped the Wichita Art Museum celebrate the grand opening and first anniversary of their incredible Art Garden, and helped raise money for Aveda’s Give to the Earth Foundation with the EarthQUAKE show, featuring wigs and costumes made of recycled materials.

We love being selected for the Best Places to Work, because this honor comes to us from our staff. Our awesome team filled out surveys administered by Quantum Workplace about how they feel about working at Planet Hair. We’re very honored they think we’re the best.

We’ve all worked together to create an atmosphere and culture that we can look forward to when we come to work every day. We love working with such a professional, talented team of people who are dedicated to working together toward a shared commitment to style, our community and the world. Our dedicated guests give us the privilege to do what we do. We are winners indeed!

Fall Fashion with VIP Wichita

14203327_289343318103624_5297425521820727323_nDid you happen to see the September issue of VIP Wichita Magazine? We were thrilled to be asked to participate in the Fall Fashion Preview. We had so much fun working with a talented group that included Bonnie Bing, who put the whole project together.  We always love working with photographer Kacy Meineke, who we work with regularly on our own photo shoots. You’ve seen her fantastic work in our front windows.

“We had a blast working with Bonnie! She’s the best!” said co-owner Tod Ernst. “It was great to bring all the energy back from the days of doing shoots with Bonnie for the Eagle.”

If you haven’t been to the Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine, you really owe to yourself to see this beautiful historic garden. The Arboretum was gorgeous and it was a beautiful day to be outside.

Of course, thanks to our talented team who participated: Tod, Graham, Jamie, Klay, Hannah, Suzie and Emma for giving more than 100% on this fun project.

Here are some behind the scenes pictures of the shoot:

Wichita Art Museum Art Park Anniversary
Saturday, September 24 from 5 to 8 pm

We are honored to be invited back to participate in the Wichita Art Museum first anniversary party of the grand opening of their beautiful Art Garden. We had so much fun last year creating botanical hair styles for the opening party; we can’t wait to show you what we have planned for this year’s celebration! We’ve been challenged to come up with fashions that coincide with the opening of the new fall exhibit, Shiny, Sticky, Smooth: Pop Art and the Senses, so you know it’s going to be good. Evening festivities start at 5 pm with local food trucks and fun in the garden. We go on at 7 pm, with surprise musical entertainment to follow. The event is free, open to the public and includes free admission into the museum to see the new exhibit, so there’s no reason not to be there.


Wine Women & Shoes on Friday
Friday, October 21 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm

We’re excited to participate in the Wine Women & Shoes fundraiser for the new Wesley Children’s Foundation. This event raises money to help support families while their child is in the Wesley Children’s Hospital. The evening will include shopping, entertainment, fun surprised and of course a fashion show with hair and makeup by our own Planet Hair team. Tickets are $100 or $150 for a VIP ticket. Tables for eight are also available. Get more information and tickets at www.winewomenandshoes.com/wichita.

Want to look younger? Protect your skin!

Daily_Light_Guard_stylized_product_imageEnvironmental damage is the most common cause of skin damage like dark spots, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to make daily protection a habit. Let Nature help defend your skin’s natural beauty with sheer, weightless defense against the elements that damage skin. Great for all skin types, add daily light guard™ to your skin care routine, over your morning moisturizer, to help defend against the elements that visibly damage skin every day.

New daily light guard™ has a spf of 30 with advanced technology to make its zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sunscreens glide on sheer and smooth—while plant-derived anti-oxidants help protect you against free radical damage from environmental elements. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are effective sunscreens because they create a physical barrier on the skin’s surface—helping protect skin from UVA and UVB rays. This is how Nature helps defend your skin’s natural beauty!
