With great sadness we say good-bye to Normajean Korn

Normajean....missed by many, forever in our hearts.

Our dear friend and colleague Normajean Korn, unexpectedly passed away July 8, 2015. She was the owner of Total Image Salon in Colorado Springs.

As a Michigan native, she was involved in teaching and administration for the Lakeview School District in Battle Creek, Michigan, while attaining her Doctorate Degree in Education. Normajean represented the state of Michigan at the White House Conference on Education, while meeting with the President and serving on his committee. She was always actively involved in her profession.
After retiring from education in 1978, she moved to Colorado Springs and opened the Total Image Salon at 1410 South 21st Street. Continuing her lifelong involvement in her community, she helped develop and participate in the Look Good, Feel Better program with the American Cancer Society, receiving special recognition and awards for her outstanding work. – See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/gazette/obituary.aspx?n=normajean-marie-massa-korn&pid=175272143#sthash.OBdc4TC2.dpuf
Total Image Design will continue as the salon that cares about you and wants to help you with all of your styling needs. The same staff will be there to take care of you and we continue to be a part of our community as Normajean has inspired us to be.
Once again we are holding a sock drive with all the socks collected being donated to Urban Peak youth shelter. The only shelter for youth in the Colorado front range with a shelter in Colorado Springs and in Denver.

Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver and Colorado Springs that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.

They do this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth (youth in housing do pay a minimal rent each month):

  • an overnight shelter
  • a daytime Drop-In Center
  • Street Outreach
  • Education and Employment programming
  • Supportive housing

Their goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets. Urban Peak’s programs and services are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* and positive youth development and assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets.

*To provide trauma-informed services means that we understand an individual’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, intellectual and spiritual. Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives.

We hope you will all join us by donating new socks for the youth in need.

You can drop socks off at the salon any time during business hours.

If you wish to donate more you can visit their website at:

http://www.urbanpeak.org/colorado-springs/donate/donate-to-urban-peak/

There are many ways to donate and they have a wish list included on the website if you would like to help them out with specific needs that they have.

She will be missed by many and certainly remembered fondly by those who knew her.

The salon is continuing on and we hope we can continue to fulfill your styling needs.
