It was all scissors in action Sunday afternoon when $750 was raised in aid of breast cancer awareness by various spas and salons on Grand Cayman.
The actual amount raised at the Cut-a-thon was $650, but Eclipze Hair Design and Day Spa, where the event was held, added in an extra $100 to bring the value up to $750.
All proceeds from the day will go to the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Programme.
‘It was slower this year, but understandably so,’ explained Ms Darla Dilbert-Wood, Artistic Director of Eclipze.
‘It was harder for people to turn out as Sunday is their day to try to put their lives back together after the hurricane, but we were happy to be able to get together to do it and something is better than nothing,’
Women, men and children had the opportunity to avail of a hair cut, back massage, manicure or threading hair removal with all proceeds going to the worthy cause of breast cancer research.
Participating salons and spas were: Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa, Virginia’s Beauty Centre, Headz Up, Dee’s Beauty Centre, Sameena’s Beauty Centre, Spa Esprit, Renaissance Beauty Salon and Body Works.
