A number of Islanders turned up at Alissta Towers last Sunday to be cut for a good cause.
It isn’t as painful as it sounds. The cut-a-thon was held in the complex’s parking lot to benefit the Cayman Hospice Society.
Services were donated by La Belle International hair salon, which offered $10 child haircuts and $15 adult haircuts from 10am till 2 pm.
Massages were also offered upstairs in the salon for $20 and $25 for a 15-minute or 20-minute massage respectively.
Angie Purvis, owner and hairstylist at La Belle International hair salon, was enthusiastic about the event.
‘It’s for a great cause. Everything we earned will go to Cayman Hospice.’
The staff, which donated its services for the day, did so with a smile.
‘It is all worth it, it’s for charity,’ explained Melvin Caballero, hair stylist at La Belle.
Esther Decou had her curly locks trimmed by hair stylist Maria Herrera.
When asked why she had turned out that morning, Ms Decou applauded the salon for its effort. ‘It’s a great idea and it’s for charity,’ she said.
Tthe event raised $870 for Cayman HospiceCare, as all profits from the services and 10 per cent of all retail sales were donated.
