Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa is once again raising awareness – and funds – for breast cancer by opening its doors on Sunday, 20 Oct. for its annual Cut-a-Thon.
Now in its 19th year, the event takes place from 2-6pm at its Camana Bay location.
The menu of services includes cuts for men, women and children, mini manicures, eyebrow threading and massages for $1 per minute. The Eclipze team will be joined by volunteer stylists from other salons on the island including Privé Beauty Studio, Focus Hair and Beauty, and Pure Hair Salon.
Visiting master stylist Roby Powers of TIGI New York will be offering cuts while Michelle Blaisure, a certified trichologist for Bosely Professional Strength, will offer consultations on hair loss and scalp disorders.
Several volunteers – including Eclipze owner Darla Dilbert – have come forward to do a ‘big chop’ by cutting at least 10 to 12 inches off their hair, or shave their head, to help raise additional funds. Each is aiming to raise $1,000 through sponsors.
Proceeds from the Cut-a-Thon go to the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Fund to support its education programme on early detection and provide mammograms to those unable to afford the screening.
Dilbert and her sister Darna Parchman launched the Cut-a-Thon in memory of their aunt, who passed away from the disease more than 20 years ago.
Last year’s event raised more than $17,000.
