To celebrate 15 years of Rocket Dog Rescue and his love of animals, James Colgan is holding a fundraiser for this local rescue shelter. For a small donation to Rocket Dog Rescue, James will be providing complimentary glamor cuts at Bernal Heights.

Fundraiser Event Link: Since moving to Potereo Hill, James takes weekly runs to Bernal Heights to take a break from the city life, pet the dogs, and take in the amazing views of the city. For this event, James is very excited to deliver his new Takara Belmont USAchair to the hill to offer clients a unique cutting experience while raising funds for Rocket Dog Rescue.

Rocket Dog Rescue is a San Francisco Bay Area dog rescue organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers. They save dogs from death at over-crowded shelters and find them loving, happy homes. Now in their 15th year, they have saved the lives of over 7,800 animals!

Thank You Wade

Farewell-wade-james-colgan-salon35 years of serving San Francisco with love and the best of intentions. I say farewell to my beloved clients and my beautiful city. A piece of my heart will always be here.

I have decided to take an early retirement and rediscover my art and redefine myself on the most beautiful place on the planet, the Hawaiian Islands.

I want to thank James for a wonderful creative salon for me in my last year's of San Francisco. I feel confident in recommending James and the staff, they are all very professional and nice people.

I hope I touched your hearts, because you've all touched mine. With love and light, I will see you one day on the beach.

"I first started at James Colgan Union Square in October of 2015. Being here has made a positive impact on my career. James Colgan has allowed me creative freedom and has given me an immense amount of encouragement . Since being at JCUS, I started working on a lot of personal editorial projects for myself. I would come in on my days off and set up a mini photo shoot at the salon, and immediately get into styling and shooting. A week after I finished my second photo shoot, I noticed Hairbrained was holding a contest to win tickets for the IBS show in New York. And if you're unfamiliar , it's a big hair show for hairdressers to attend. They hold hair/fashion shows, education, and sell professional tools for salon industry professionals -like a trip to Disneyland for kids, but for hairdressers. I decided to submit photos from my photo shoot. Next thing you , I was one of the chosen ten to win! It's almost surreal and a huge honor for me ...and it's only the beginning !"
