This Sunday get a great, cheap haircut that you can feel really good about.
The 11th Annual Cut a Thon is being hosted by Eclipze Hair Design and Day Spa in Camana Bay, where for one afternoon only 40 stylists will be donating their time to offer dramatically reduced rates for haircuts, manicures, massages and eyebrow threading. All proceeds from the event will go to the Lion’s Club of Tropical Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Fund. This fund aims to enable those who would not otherwise be able to afford it, to go for a mammogram and receive the check ups they need.
Stylists from participating salons La Mer, The Lion’s Den, Focus, Artista, Rennaissance and Spa Esprit will all be offering wet cuts for between $12 and $25, mini manicures for $18, massages at $1 per minute and eyebrow threading for $15.
In addition to a team of locally-based stylists, top stylist Joel Torres, Talent Art Director of TIGI (manufacturers of Bedhead and Catwalk products) will be offering five haircuts, by appointment, at just $100 apiece.
Ms Blanca Welds, a member of the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens, has also volunteered to cut over 15 inches off her hair, if enough sponsors can be found to donate a minimum of $1,000 for this cause.
“We had a great year last year,” said Asma Bishouty of Eclipze Hair Design. “We raised $3,500 for this worthy cause with about 75 to 100 people showing up for the event.”
The Cut a Thon, which was started by sisters Darla and Darna Parchman – then co-owners of Eclipze – after losing an aunt to breast cancer, has raised on average $2,500 annually which goes directly to helping members of the community pay for the necessary screening and care for the disease.
The Cut a Thon will run from 2pm to 6pm on Sunday, 23 October at Eclipze Hair Design and Day Spa, Camana Bay.
