Pink Hair for Hope: Giving Back To A Great Cause

We often ask ourselves the question... What can I do to give back?

We often ask ourselves the question... What can I do to give back?

So many people have raised Breast Cancer awareness in so many different ways. Whether it be participating in one of the different Breast Cancer walks, displaying a pink ribbon, or even writing a secretive facebook status that keeps everyone guessing. Here at Sean Nicole Salon, this October we decided to try something new; Pink Hair For Hope. It has been such a fun, eye catching way to raise awareness. 

What is it you ask?                                                                                                                  Have you seen anyone walking around sporting a pink hair extension this month? Through the months of September and October, we decided to show our support by encouraging clients to wear a pink hair extension in honor of Breast Cancer awareness. Each hair extension was a donation of $10, all proceeds went to the American Cancer Society.

In doing this, Sean Nicole salon has teamed up with more than 375 salons to help raise Breast Cancer awareness and raise money to fight the cause. Through September and October we have raised roughly $1500 and all the salons together have raised close to two million dollars!

Pink Hair For Hope has been a great way to see our community come together for such a great cause. We can't wait to participate again next year.

What a great thing for Sean Nicole Salon and the other salons in Acton to do! I just left Margo's in West Acton and for a $10 donation, they will buy and donate a pashmina to a cancer patient at Emerson Hospital with a tag included with the name of the donor. I think the program ends tonight but they are open until 8pm if anyone in West Acton wants to stop in with their trick or treater.

they have begun trying to lower http://www.coachoutletmls.com expectations.Consolidated Edison, for example, tucked an especially http://www.hemesbelscq.com dire note into a news release on Thursday afternoon. It said the http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com “vast majority” of its customers in New York City http://www.coachoutletonlinehl.net and the northern suburbs should have power by Nov. 11, http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org but a significant number could remain in the dark for http://www.coachoutletuso.net a week or more beyond that.John Miksad, the company’s senior
