BLOWING AWAY BREAST CANCER
-STUDIO 44 HAIR SALON HOSTS FUNDRAISER FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH-
Studio 44 in Avon wants to blow away breast cancer with special fundraising events throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Starting October 1st and lasting the entire month, 10% of all salon services will be donated to the Connecticut Breast Health Initiative. The salon will also be accepting contributions for the nonprofit organization that supports local education and research.
The highlight of the charity campaign is the big blow dry event happening on Sunday, October 22nd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Stop by between those hours for a $40 blow dry, with $20 going to the CT Breast Health Initiative. Promotion is for new clients only.
“Breast cancer is an important cause for the salon and one close to all of the stylists’ hearts, since 5% of our clients are breast cancer survivors,” explains Lead Stylist Deanna Nesta. ”We give our clients tips for styling their hair after chemo or radiation, and suggest the most flattering cut. Oftentimes cancer treatments change the texture of a woman’s hair.”
Nesta notes the importance of using quality products that enhance the new hair growth, cut and style, such as Keratin treatments after undergoing cancer treatment. “In addition, the quiet and private setting of our salon is ideal for many cancer survivors seeking discretion during their post-cancer care hair transformation.
When asked about top fall hair design trends for all women, Nesta starts with popular and prevalent “oil-slick” hair color for women with darker hair.
“This trend is all about putting the iridescent colors that swirl on top of an oil slick into your hair,” she says. “We blend tones of purple and green to create an inky, color changing sheen.”
Other hot hair hues include silver or platinum and those inspired by the fall season, such as warm coppers, reds and chocolate browns. For a hairstyle, triangle cuts are popular and bob-length hair is preferred over the long styles of last season.
The Connecticut Breast Health Initiative, Inc. (CT BHI) is a non-profit that makes a significant impact in the quest to find a cure for breast cancer by providing grants to support education and progressive research that has yet to qualify for federal grants. 100% of the money raised by CT BHI stays in-state. To date, CT BHI has awarded over $3.1 million in grants. For more information visit www.ctbhi.org.
