Campaign Description

One Hot Mama Salon & Spa offers busy moms and dads an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate while their little ones are safe nearby


Rediscover Your Inner Hot Mama


One Hot Mama Salon & Spa offers busy moms and dads an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate while their little ones are safe nearby.  We will offer onsite child minding for clients, so they can be pampered while their children are taken care of and get to play in our fun and safe child minding centre.



What is One Hot Mama?


Four years ago I got the idea for One Hot Mama Salon and Spa.  Being a single mom, I saw a need for other parents like myself to be able to take time for something even as simple as a haircut.  I knew not only single parents, but people whose spouse works out of town, and parents trying to coordinate with their spouses’ schedules, pretty well anyone with children could benefit from a shop that offered childminding.  Many of my clients had such a difficult time making an appointment.  They’d end up bringing their kids with them and they could never truly relax and it seemed like torture for the kiddos.  They would distract their little ones with snacks and ipads, but their patience didn’t last long.  Or they would have to arrange for a babysitter, which costs them even more money, they felt guilty for leaving, and couldn’t relax because they were worried and would call to check in.

At One Hot Mama Salon and Spa, our CPR and First Aid trained staff will provide a fun, safe environment for our clients’ children so they can relax and rejuvenate without the guilt and stress.

Our full service salon and spa will offer haircuts for mom, dad, and the entire family.  As well as, colours, styles and updos, beard trims, hot shaves, scalp and hair treatments, perms, extensions, manicures, pedicures, gel nails, massages, facials, eyelash extensions, and makeup applications



Who Am I?


My name is Amanda Siltala.  I am a single mom of two kids.  I’ve been a hairstylist for over 10 years and have worked at a variety of salons and barbershops.  I am passionate about doing hair, not just for the artistic aspect, but because of the relationships I form with my clients.  The most fulfilling part of my job is to help women feel beautiful and men feel handsome, both inside and out.  The confidence and energy they have when he or she leaves my chair is one of the most incredible feelings.  I not only get to know them, but I get to know their families.  I can be a listening ear and a friend.  It’s not just about the relationships formed, but also about the experience.  I want every client to leave my chair with a cut or colour that they love and customer service that goes above and beyond.



Why Crowdfunding?

I was operating as a chair rental up until September when my ex-husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.  Left to raise two children on my own, I decided to shut down my shop and focus on them.  I not only lost my co-parent and friend, but I gave up my passion.  I am now in a position where I am ready to re-open.  I didn’t have the space or resources to offer childminding to my clients.  However, I am ready to expand and open full scale, also adding spa services.  I am asking for your support to reach my goal of $5000 to secure a location and equipment.  You’d really be saving my clients' necks.  Literally.  It hurts to have to bend over my kitchen sink.  I want to thank you for your support and helping busy moms and dads get a timeout, rather than giving one.  This is the kind that you actually want to have.

I'd rather invest time and money into my clients and employees than into high interest rates.  Instead it can be paid forward and you can get some pretty hot rewards in return for your support.
