    honoring stylists + community




    Celebrating the totally fabulous life and times of Charles Anolik on his 100th birthday.

    Mr. Charles had a special place in his heart for the elderly, having seen so many suffer and quickly perish during the war. On a couple of Sundays every month for many years, Mr. Charles would visit the Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center in Des Moines and spend a few hours doing hair.


    On March 3, 2017, Charles' son, Dave, is partnering with bfab to provide FREE stylist “spruce-ups” to various elderly institutions in the Bay Area, CA and Des Moines, IA.
