Each Friday, the staff members at Talus-A Therapeutic Salon in Springettsbury Township don a subtle gesture they hope reminds the public there are still actively deployed U.S. servicemen and servicewomen: They wear red, joining a national movement to honor deployed members of the military

“People are numb to it,” says Colleen Zeigler, who co-owns Talus along with Angie Yanikov. “Soldiers put their lives on the line. They don’t get recognized. Compassion for the military needs to be there.”

For Colleen and Angie, it goes well beyond what they and their staff wear. Giving back to active military and veterans is a part of who they are, and they’ve made it a part of their business.

The salon offers a military discount to soldiers, as well as to their families.

“It’s a huge sacrifice, not only emotionally, but it can be financially, as well,” Angie says. “We try to help the whole family.”

The wear-red-on-Fridays tradition started when Angie’s son – currently serving in the U.S. Army – left on his third deployment. Colleen, the daughter of an Army vet, has a son-in-law currently serving, as well.

None of us would be where we are now without them. We have freedom as women to own our own businesses.

Aside from the personal connections, the staff appreciates the sacrifices the military makes on their behalf.

Talus has been in business for 14 years, and both owners believe they have directly benefitted in their business and creative lives from the security the military provides.

“None of us would be where we are now without them,” Angie says. “We have freedom as women to own our own businesses. Our girls have the option to make hair any color of the rainbow.”

And giving back is just their way of being part of something greater.

“It comes full circle,” says Colleen. “To earn respect in your community …”

“… you have to give it back,” chimes in Angie.
