To Benjamin and Justin Hudgins, their employees are family.
As such, the owners of Novak Hair Studios in Fort Worth, Texas, make sure to celebrate their team’s birthdays at the end of every month. Since the salon is closed because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, they couldn’t host their usual parties in March or April. That’s why they decided to bring the festivities to their stylists!
Armed with cakes from a local bakery, the two of them drove around the city to make surprise deliveries. Dressed as the salon’s bee mascot, they brought beautiful desserts — and some stellar dance moves — to everyone on the team with a recent birthday!
Each of their employees lit up at the thoughtful gesture. Not only did they get a delicious cake, but they were also reminded that they’re loved and seen — even in this time of social distancing!
Some laughed, while others danced along with their bosses as they twirled their children around. Despite the hardship they’re facing right now, they know they can always count on their second family at the salon.
“You guys are making me cry over here,” one stylist wrote on Facebook. “How can you even think of doing this! BECAUSE YOU’RE THE BEST! The most selfless people I know.”
Another added, “I’m in actual tears. You guys are the absolute sweetest. Miss my salon family!!”
Keep spreading light in this uncertain time, Justin and Benjamin! Your employees are lucky to have you, and you clearly believe you’re lucky to have them.

Normally we celebrate Birthdays at the salon at the end of every month. With COVID having us distancing, we decided to bring our March/April Birthday celebration to them! HUGE Thank You to Sweet Stuff for always making our birthdays special, but especially this month! #somegoodnews Music Credits: PJ Panda, Happy Birthday Song Trap Remix*we do not own the rights to the music*
