Redken x Prete Present: National Blowout Week from July 21st – 28th!

Everyone feels great when they get a blowout. So much so, that for the past few years, there’s even a National Blowout Day, taking place this year on July 28th. To take the day a step further and loop in a good cause, RedkenGoody and PRÊTE have partnered together to extend the day into a full week for the FIRST TIME: National Blowout Week, taking place on July 21st – July 28th via a week-long, appointment-only blowout pop up shop that will stop in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. Not in California? No problem! Simply book blowouts on the PRÊTE app for $39, and all money from appointments booked that week will go to National Blowout Week’s charity partner, the beYOUtiful Foundation. It’s a brand new 501c3 by the founders of Nine Zero One Salon benefitting women going through cancer treatment and recovery.

 

For more information, please visit NationalBlowOutDay.com. Check out where we are by following National Blowout Day on Instagram! We’ll also be handing out gifts each day at each of the locations – so keep an eye out!

HIT THE TRAILS ON A TRIKE AT SAN DIEGO ZOO SAFARI PARK

SAN DIEGO ZOO SAFARI PARK

HIT THE TRAILS ON A TRIKE AT SAN DIEGO ZOO SAFARI PARK

 

The sprawling savannas of Asia and the majestic plains of Africa will come to life in a unique way for guests when the new Trike Safari experience opens at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park this weekend. For the kid at heart, the Trike Safari offers an eye-opening adventure around the Park’s field habitats, led by two tour guides providing in-depth knowledge of the many animals in the fields, including giraffes, rhinos, and gazelles.

 

Starting Saturday, June 27, guests can depart on the custom-made electric trikes for an hour-long tour filled with amazing photo opportunities and unique ways to observe the Park’s wildlife.

“The best part about the Trike Safari is that you get to experience part of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park that not many other guests get to see,” said Breanna Murray, tour operator for the Safari Park. “You are also in a very peaceful atmosphere where you get up-close and personal with some of the animals, and you may be able to experience behaviors that a lot of guests don’t usually see.”

 

The Trike Safari costs $80 per person and guests must be at least 12 years old to participate. Children 12 to 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult, while a written consent is needed for teens aged 16 and 17. Before each tour there is an orientation and training on the trikes. Tours depart every hour, starting at 10 a.m., seven days a week. For reservations and more information, visit www.sdzsafaripark.org

 

When visiting the Safari Park this summer, in addition to the new Trike Safari, guests are invited to enjoy the Park’s Summer Safari Asian Celebration.  Summer Safari Asian Celebration immerses guests in Asian-themed festivities, complete with drumming, acrobatics, martial arts and more. Summer Safari runs through Aug. 16 with extended Park hours from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. All festivities are included with admission or Safari Park membership.

 

Bringing species back from the brink of extinction is the goal of San Diego Zoo Global. As a leader in conservation, the work of San Diego Zoo Global includes onsite wildlife conservation efforts (representing both plants and animals) at the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, as well as international field programs on six continents.  The work of these entities is inspiring children through the San Diego Zoo Kids network, reaching out through the Internet and in children’s hospitals nationwide.  The work of San Diego Zoo Global is made possible by the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy and is supported in part by the Foundation of San Diego Zoo Global.
