Hoshall's Project Cinderella!

Hoshall's Salon and Spa have launched "Project Cinderella" today at our Folsom location. We have teamed up with Mather Community Campus to donate haircuts to the students.

We are so excited to give back to the community in the best way we know how, with our scissors!!

Here is some information about the Mather Community Campus.

Mather Community Campus: A Haven for the Homeless Hope for homeless people wanting to get off the streets lies just around the corner: The Mather Community Campus, located in Mather Field, is a two-year live-in program that helps the financially destitute get back on their feet and in to permanent housing.

The program first started in 1995 and enrolls both families and single people who don’t have a job or a place to live. The campus sprawls over 31 acres of the former air force base, and it currently houses 300 residents including 100 children. The Mather Community Campus has been recognized by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development for its accomplishments within the Sacramento community.

“It has proven to be a very, very successful program,” said Bruce Wagstaff, the executive director of Sacramento County’s Department of Human Assistance. “Since the campus opened we’ve had 2000 successful graduates. That means not only were the residents able to find housing, but they’ve also left with a job.”

Families and individuals who are enrolled in the program are given temporary, air-conditioned housing, three meals a day, and job training to help them get steady employment. Those who are struggling with addiction also receive therapy. Staff is available for all residents of the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Residents have to pay for the services they receive, but the fee is very affordable for those being housed.

Once the residents have completed the program, the campus holds a graduation ceremony to help them and their loved ones celebrate their achievements. Both Wagstaff and Council Member Robert McGarvey lauded the program’s ability to bring people closer to one another.“One of the great things about the Mather Community Campus is it’s getting families back together,” McGarvey said. “I want to do everything we can to continue with this and make sure it’s just as successful as it possibly can be.”

The Mather Community Campus will soon be home to four-legged students as well.

The campus plans on holding an open house in the near future to announce the addition of a service dog program to their facility.

“We continue to look for new things we can do with the campus,” Wagstaff said of the upcoming program.

The Mather Community Campus has a wish list of all the items they need to continue their operations. For more information on tours or to find out how to apply, contact the campus at either (916) 228-3107 for single individuals or (916) 455-2194 for families.

Tips of Men's Skin Care

Some Tips on Men's Skin Care February 17th, 2011 • Posted by Scott Brainard • Permalink

A man's skin is approximately 15% thicker than a woman's, and is generally firmer, showing signs of aging less rapidly. However, once the aging process begins, typically around the age of 40, collagen and elastin production decreases dramatically causing the skin to show rapid and visible signs of aging with the emergence of deep wrinkles. Effective skin care can slow and reduce aging, restoring firmness and elasticity to the skin.

Active sebaceous glands cause men's skin to be oilier with larger pores and a richer blood supply. Regular deep cleansing is a necessity to maintain a healthy complexion. Men’s skin is also more prone to be dehydrated due to daily or frequent shaving. No matter your skin type, it is important to maintain a regular skin care regimen to keep pores clear, and skin vibrant and healthy looking.


Daily face cleansing will keep pores unclogged, which in turn can reduce a variety of skin conditions. Common problems facing men include pimples, ingrown hairs, and blackheads, which can leave discolored marks on the skin's surface.

Regular bar soaps are detergent-based and can strip delicate facial skin of necessary moisture, leaving it dry and flaky. Use of a light conditioning facial cleanser, free of harsh chemicals, will maintain a healthy moisture balance and preserve softness.


Exfoliation is a crucial part of any skin care regimen for men. It rids the skin of dead skin cell build up that can cause skin to appear thick and dull while helping to dislodge ingrown hairs from beneath the upper layers of the skin. Abuse and trauma caused by regular shaving makes the skin work harder to produce excess skin cells in an effort to protect and repair itself. It is crucial to pay close attention to the shave area when exfoliating in order to remove excess buildup of skin cells, eliminate and release ingrown hairs, and reduce the occurrence of razor bumps.


The best time to shave is in, or immediately following, a shower or cleansing. Wash the face and neck thoroughly in warm/hot water prior to shaving for easier hair removal. Alternatively, you can apply a hot moist towel to the face for 2 to 3 minutes prior to shaving in order to soften the skin. The warmth of the towel swells the hair shaft, allowing the blade to cut the hair, not your skin.

Always use a sharp blade. A dull blade is responsible for many shaving cuts as it drags over the face and catches the skin along with the hairs of the beard. Rinse the blade in warm water often, as this will keep the skin moist, soft and less prone to damage. Use short even strokes rather than long strokes to achieve a smoother shave.

A lot of foam and lather is not necessary for a great shaving experience. Many grocery and drug store shave creams contain harsh chemicals that “foam up” the product. Some of these foaming agents can be irritants that may cause an allergic reaction or skin irritation.


Regular shaving causes men’s skin to experience a significant amount of dehydration. Regular use of a good moisturizer prevents moisture loss in the top layer of the skin, promotes water retention and replenishes lost moisture.

A good face moisturizer should be rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, nutrients (anti-oxidants), botanical extracts, emollients and oils. These ingredients help to prevent skin damage caused by the sun, pollutants, lifestyle and other environmental factors.

Body Care

The skin on the body is just as important as the skin on the face and therefore deserves the same amount of care and attention. Daily use of a good body wash and lotion is essential to maintaining healthy, conditioned skin.
