Salon X in Apponaug will host a Cut-A-Thon, in partnership with Sexy Hair hair products, for the non-profit, Look Good Feel Better.
On Tuesday, Oct. 22 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., haircuts will be given for a minimum donation of $15. This is the first year Salon X is hosting this event to benefit Look Good Feel Better, an organization that helps more than 50,000 women annually to cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments. “It helps them feel better, getting makeovers and things like that,” said Melissa Cyr, stylist at Salon X.
According to Look Good Feel Better’s website, their mission is to improve self-esteem and quality of life for people going through cancer treatment by improving self-image and appearance with complimentary group, individual and self-help beauty sessions.
Cyr explained that these cut-a-thons for Look Good Feel Good are occurring in salons across the country through Sexy Hair, and Salon X volunteered to host one this year. “It’s a good cause,” she said.
In addition to haircuts, the salon will also be holding raffles and Piezoni’s Pizza is donating pizza for the event. All proceeds go to Look Good Feel Good.
Salon X is located at 3087 Post Road. No appointment is required for the cut-a-thon event.
