September always seems to trigger a shift within; maybe it's because of years of 'back to school,' or maybe it's just because the seasons are changing. Either way, we want to reward your efforts, so for our September Loves Local, we've got an offer from Calgary mainstays Crave Cupcakes, tickets to PARKLUXE, and a new volunteering opportunity fit for all Calgarians. Read on.



We think you'd be hard-pressed to find a Calgarian who hasn't enjoyed a Crave Cupcake, and for good reason. Crave is inspired by fresh ingredients and family recipes (using their grandmother's chocolate cake and their mom's vanilla cake recipes) to serve the best cupcakes possible.

As our guest, Crave wants to offer you: 

 20% off your next cupcake order* 

To redeem, you'll first have to pick up an offer card from the guest services teams at any of our Hedkandi or Butter Beauty Parlour locations, then visit your preferred Crave location!

 *promotion valid at any Crave Store Sept. 18 through Oct. 17, 2018 with an offer card which can be picked up at any Hedkandi or Butter Beauty Parlour location. One offer per person. 


We are so proud to have been a part of PARK's fashion shows for the past ten years! Their fashion shows have proven an amazing opportunity for our editorial team to showcase our artistic skillset. As an organization, PARK is pushing Canadian fashion and art forward and uplifting our favourite Canadian (and Calgarian!) designers and artists.

PARKLUXE 2018 is presented by Downtown Calgary on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Brookfield Place.

As our guest, you'll receive 15% off of your tickets with the code HEDKANDI2018.



Volunteering in Calgary has never been easier than with Volly App - a new user-friendly platform for Calgarians to learn about non-profits in their communities and find fun and enriching ways to give back! 

Hedkandi is starting to use Volly to help manage our staff volunteer hours and plan corporate giving events. If you are a company looking for an easy wasy to help your staff give back, email admin@vollyapp.com.

If you are interested in signing up on a personal level, start browsing their volunteer opportunities here.

This month's playlist from our friend, Calgary-based DJ Pump, is a perfect fall moment. Featuring songs from Prince, Luther Vandross, and the late Mac Miller (Rest in Peace), it's got something for everyone to dance along to!

If you've got Apple Music, you can listen to and add our playlists directly to your account here. Once you've opened the link, select 'Listen on Apple Music' and then the big red 'Add' button to sync it to your library. You can also follow us @hedkandisalon to stay up to date!

Hedkandi loves you!
