How The Program Works
Allow your child’s report card to gain them savings toward beauty and style. PLEASE check availability and book online at http://stylesbysheba.genbook.com or call for availability. See terms for the program below.
The program is open to all Richmond City, Henrico County and Chesterfield County public and private school students, grades K-12 who make Honor or Scholar Roll for the quarter; must receive letter grades A-F. Home schooled students ARE NOT eligible for participation. Male/female students are eligible for discounts on hairstyles, braids, or haircuts, not exceeding the value of the service and up to $25.00 per quarter. Each student is eligible for one discount per quarter. It is non-transferable and cannot be combined with any other discounts (Weekly Specials, holiday discounts or business/association discounts) and is not valid towards mobile or appointment-related fees. Each student MUST present their report card for validity. A certificate printed by the school is not acceptable without the current report card.
For the quarterly discount, the discount must be used in one service. If the total value is not used with that service, the remaining value is void. The value does not roll over like the Presidential Program. There are specific expiration dates for each quarter.
Discounts are as follows (value must not exceed $25):
$5 per A
$3 per B
$1 per C
At the end of the school year, any student who has maintained Honor/Scholar Roll for all 4 quarters is eligible to receive a $50 credit (Presidential Program). The “Presidential Program” credit will be given instead of the 4th quarter discount for eligible students. This credit will not have to be used in one appointment like the quarterly discount. It will present like an e-gift certificate. MUST present final report card. In order to be eligible for the Presidential Program, the initial redemption must be made between 6/23/20 – 8/5/20. If the initial service is not completed by the deadline, the student will lose the entire value of the certificate.

History of Styles for Grades Program
My Styles For Grades Program was established in 2009 to reward academic excellence for students in grades K-12 in the Hampton Roads, VA area, where I resided for 10 years. I wanted to do something to reward students for achieving Honor and Scholar Roll during the school year, in hopes that they would be encouraged to continue getting good grades. I became a partner in education with many area schools and was featured on WTKR (Hampton Roads) News Channel 3’s “People Taking Action” segment in January 2011.
Honor and scholar roll recipients receive free or discounted services for quarterly submissions of their report cards. Students who maintain honor and/or scholar roll for all 4 quarters receive a $50 allotment at the end of the school year to use towards hair services – these are my Presidential Program participants. I also participate in back to school, homecoming, prom, graduation and other events throughout the school year. This year’s back to school “Day of Service” was held over 2 days, August 27 & 28, 2019, where all appointments were for students who displayed a need to receive free haircuts and hair services for back to school. All hair, products and accessories were provided from money set aside from tips and a percentage of revenue collected from paid hair services throughout the year.
In 2012, we moved from the Hampton Roads area back to my hometown in Richmond, VA. It was a difficult transition with the move and with the change from being in a centralized salon to a full time mobile stylist. I made the decision to put the program on hold for the 2013-14 school year. The relaunch and expansion of the program for K-12 students in Richmond City, Henrico County AND Chesterfield County school districts has been such a rewarding experience but we definitely need support to keep the program going and with the overwhelming response from this school year’s first event, now is the perfect time to donate!
Since I started the program in 2009, I have been using all of my tips and a small percentage of my earnings to purchase the necessary supplies for participants in the program. I started with about 60 participants in 2009 and have grown to about 547 total participants with the ending of the 2018-19 school year. Every quarter more and more students participate. Please consider donating to the program. Donations assist with hair, supplies, certificates and other miscellaneous expenses for participants in the program; as well as, participation in back to school, prom, graduation, and homecoming events. Donations can be made securely via PayPal.
Days of Service 2020
Styles By Sheba’s 4th Annual Days of Service were held on August 27 and August 28, 2019. Students who attended Richmond City, Henrico and Chesterfield County Public Schools were eligible to receive free or discounted hair services / haircuts for Back to School 2019! This program was a need based program. From the bottom of my heart, I graciously thank each and every parent and student who participated. I am always happy to serve others.
The Days of Service program is a small gesture of giving back to my local community. Thank you to everyone who donated hair and supplies for the program. You are greatly appreciated. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the next community event.
Even though the Days of Service event is over, you can still sponsor a child/children or contribute supplies for our community events held throughout the year.
