“On June 19, 1865, enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, were told they were free. A century and a half later, people in cities and towns across the U.S. continue to celebrate the occasion.”

Annastasia Salon will be closed on Saturday, June 19th, 2021 in observance of “Juneteenth.” By pausing our business on this day we honor a moment in our country’s history where we drew breath for the first time as a sensible and loving country with freedom for all.
By adding Juneteenth to our holiday calendar, we hope, in some small way, to remind ourselves of the work there is to be done and the work we want to be a part of. May we make ourselves proud, may we listen to new perspectives, and may we be unafraid of the change that will undoubtedly need to come from ourselves first, before anywhere else. We can do better!
