Men, women and children are being offered the opportunity to become beautified for a low price while raising money for cancer awareness at the same time.
The fourth annual ‘Cutathon’ in aid of breast cancer awareness takes place Sunday 27 February at Eclipze Hair Design and Day Spa at Alexander Place, Dorcy Drive from 3pm to 6pm.
The day will feature a host of hair stylists and beauty therapists from the island’s major salons, including Virginia’s Beauty Centre, Today’s Image Beauty Salon, Headz Up, Dees Beauty Salon and Eclipze.
All money raised will go directly to the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens’ breast cancer awareness fund.
The event had originally been planned for October of last year, but had to be postponed following the passage of Hurricane Ivan.
On offer on the day will be dollar massages lasting a minute along with mini manicures ($10 without polish and for $15 with it) and wet hair cuts.
According to Ms Gaynor Wong, who is co-ordinating the event, customers are being encouraged to come into the salon with their hair already wet for cutting. This way, women can avail of a wet hair cut for $16, men for $12 and children for $10.
‘We’re inviting everyone to come and support this worthy cause,’ said Ms. Wong.
