Strands Hairdressing Get Pretty In Pink To Raise Funds For Breast Cancer Awareness
Award-winning Southern salon group Strands Hairdressing have been busy putting the ‘fun’ into ‘fundraising’ this October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Stand Up To Cancer. The Hampshire hairdressing collective has been steadily raising the bar in the world of scissors with their multiple industry accolades, and now they’ve turned their styling skills towards raising funds for a charitable cause.
To kick off their fabulous fundraising, Strands organised a Pink Day at both of their branches, with the Whiteley debut taking place on Friday October 19th, followed hotly on the heels by Hill Head on Friday October 26th. As part of the event, the salon teams baked cakes, used only pink disposable towels and admirably donned top-to-toe pink apparel for the occasion. What’s more, everyone had the opportunity to get involved as raffle tickets were sold throughout the day, giving customers the chance to get their mitts on a coveted pair of pink GHDs, with the winner being announced following the draw at the end of the month. Raising a total of £550 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer with the cake sale and raffle combined, the charity piggy bank was certainly left looking pretty in pink!
But the fundraising feats didn’t stop there: Strands also put their tools to the test for the greater good when they took on the styling roster for their local senior school Charity Fashion Show in aid of Cancer Research, the Armed Forces and ChildLine. With the strands of 60 students styled to perfection in their capable hands, the show was watched by an audience of over 300, proving the salon team more than up to the charity challenge!
Founder Pauline Howe was delighted to get involved, commenting:
‘The Breast Cancer fundraising was for a really worthy cause as the majority of our clients are women, therefor it was great to be able to do our bit to help and also have some fun in the process!’
