There is far too much to say as to why we are hosting this event this year. So I decided to dedicate this blog entry to it.
For those of you who do not know we have teamed up with Ribbon Riders to raise money for those who are fighting cancer now!!!!
Cancer is an interesting disease that can effect anyone, at any time, with or with out doing things to prevent it. It is a disease that no one is safe from. It affects everyone even if only indirectly. I am pretty sure that every US American knows someone who is battling cancer right now. I myself watched someone that I loved very dearly battle cancer and lose. At the moment it was happening I remember thinking how could this happen? Why did this happen? Will it happen to me? But through their fight I learned a lot about life and myself. I learned that I should do all I can, every moment that I can, because right now is a gift (that’s why it’s called the present-LOL). That the people in our lives affect us much deeper then they know and we should always tell them as often as we can. Take lots of pictures because pictures last forever. Love is unconditional! I also learned that cancer is extremely expensive and your income will dramatically diminish right before your eyes. Plus once you’re cancer free you will have to start your life all over again. This is a huge financial burden on top of the physical and emotion drain. That is why I am so thankful for people like Ribbon Riders who will help people going through cancer.
October has been Breast Cancer Awareness month for as long as I can remember. It’s a great time because we are settling back into school/work routines, which makes it easier to plan doctor’s appointments. The one lesson that is a constant with cancer is that early detection is the key to surviving cancer. It is when you have the most options and when you have the best success. I want to remind everyone that at least once a year you should meet with your doctor for a physical and definitely talk about anything that you have going on that is not normal for YOU. Only you know what is normal for your body and cancer has a ton of side effects. Sometimes they are pretty simple things you would never expect to be so important. So defiantly bring them up at your annual physical with your doctor.
Now that you know why we are having this Fund Raiser, let’s discuss what we will be doing. For the entire month of October we will be selling micro loop, hot pink, 100% human hair extensions for $10 each and 50% of all sales will go to Ribbon Riders. These are great hair extensions because you can wash them just like your hair. You can even use hot tools on them up to 120 degrees. The best part is that these extensions do not use any kind of adhesive to attach them to your hair. They simple side onto the hair stand and get clamped on. When you want to remove them just come back in and we will open the clamp and slid them off. You can even put them in a Zip lock bag to save them to reuse next year. We will be out at events with Ribbon Riders every Saturday in the month of October selling extensions, but you are welcome to come into the salon to get them done anytime.
We are also hosting a “Hair-Cut-A-Thon” on October 22, 2011. We will be starting at 9am and go until every client gets a hair cut!!!! We will be focusing on hair cuts so that we can raise the most money for Ribbon Riders. Therefore we will only be doing Pink Extensions and Cuts during the event!!! If you would like one of our many other services we will be happy to serve you anytime the rest of the week. 50% of every hair cut will go to Ribbon Riders. We are hoping to raise $3000.00 for Ribbon Riders.
Hair Cut Pricing will be as follows and 50% of every hair cut will be donated.
$10 for Children under 6 years old.
$15 for Children over 6 years old
$22 for a Men’s Cut
$30 for a Women’s Cut
