The Chair

Winter Garden Hairstylist Gives Back

This past weekend Master Stylist & Certified Keratin Complex Specialist Traci Allen took a break from behind the chair in her iStudio Salons private studio to give back at Whispering Oak Elementary PTO Carnival and the 7th Annual Wine Women & Shoes event.

Allen's son is a fifth grader at Whispering Oak Elementary, and she has participated in the school's annual carnival since he was a kindergartener. The annual PTO carnival took place Friday, April 21. This event welcomed the community to enjoy fun rides, carnival-style games, food and other attractions.

"The carnival is a great way to give back to the community," said Allen. Funds raised from the carnival benefit the school. In past years, funds have gone towards purchasing new computers and a sunshade to keep the kids cool during play.

Allen collaborated with her assistant Kimberly and hairstylists Jennifer Grogan and Stephanie Ellsworth to create dazzling glitter roots and vibrant spray painted hair. The fun hair put a lot of smiles on the children's faces. Allen charged $5 per child. The team raised $420 which will go towards this year's 5th-grade celebration.

Allen also volunteered her makeup services for the fashion show at Wine Women & Shoes, a wine pairing and shoe shopping fundraisers that benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.


Traci Allen holds over 20 years of hairstyling experience.
