It was such a blast showing these two around our home these past couple of days to show them all of the wonderful places our community has to offer! We met these two wonderful souls in Cambodia and they are a huge part of The Salon Movement which is a, "unified grassroots movement of sustainability-conscious Davines stylists and salon owners who actively care and love our planet, culture, and craft."

We hope you enjoyed your time around Norfolk and VA Beach!!

Inside Business interviewed AOC Salon!



When Dalbe Markman, owner of AOC Salon in Ghent, and salon education director Sarah Mitchell arrived in Cambodia, the streets reeked of trash. With sanitation workers on strike, the visitors held their breath as they pushed their way through the markets of Phnom Penh.


Nearly five weeks later, despite strong odors and scarce Western conveniences, Markman had to convince Mitchell to return to America.


At the end of June the two traveled to Cambodia with the nonprofit Justice and Soul Foundation. They spent 4-1/2 weeks volunteering as educators in the newly built cosmetology school for young women and men.

 AOC Salon trains women who were sold into slavery the trade of Cosmetology.

Imagine being a young woman in such a terrible situation that she is sold as a sex slave. It’s the ultimate terror. But thankfully, there are people out there who are helping to make a positive change in the lives of these women. Three of these people come right out of our region from AOC Salon in Ghent, Norfolk, Va.

The first of these three great women is my friend Dalbe Markman, who is the owner and a color specialist at the salon. The second is Sarah Jane Mitchell who is a hair stylist and an educator coordinator at the salon. (These two philanthropic souls are currently in Cambodia making a difference.) The third is Jessica Lutzow, hair stylist and marketing manager at the salon who will be travelling to Cambodia this October to continue the education process for the Cambodian women.
The organizations involved in these kind acts are Justice and Soul, Transitions, Davines and, of course our very own AOC Salon.
I’ve asked all three of these generous women to explain in their own words why they are taking this incredible journey. Please read their words and share with your friends so we can help to spread the word about the terrible truths of sex trafficking all over the world.
