Many of us have had the painful experience of cutting a client's hair as they undergo chemotherapy. Wouldn't it be fantastic if that was something we never had to do again? Supporting HairToStay's October Salon-a-Thon will tie your salon to a cause that will resonate strongly within your community and among your clients.
The Salon-a-Thon is open to hair and beauty salons anywhere in the U.S. It’s a wonderful way for your salon to help thousands of patients avoid one of the most devastating side effects of chemotherapy eliminating the heartbreak of chemo cuts.
Pick a day or days during the month of October and hold a Salon-a-Thon event at your salon. Donate your proceeds for that day to HairToStay. Many salons are choosing to hold the event on a Monday when they’re normally closed.
Ask your clients to donate side-by-side with you during Salon-a-Thon. Possibly offer to match a portion of their donations.
Every $1,000 subsidizes another patient. How many lives can your salon try to change? Donate a percentage of your total product and/or service revenues for the entire month of October.
The HairToStay Salon-a-Thon we did this May was a win-win. Our clients felt great about being part of this special cause and our stylists felt great about being able to use their talents to give back in such a meaningful way”, said Heather Fultz, co-owner of Revery Hair Salon and Shavery Barber Shop in Mill Valley, CA. “Every cut, blow-out, highlight and shave mattered. The salon-a-thon was also a great way to introduce new folks to our salon and barber shop. In the end, it was not just about creating a great look, it was also about creating a great feeling. Our staff is excited to do it again!"
Our Salon-a-Thon Toolkit is a step-by-step guide to organizing, promoting and executing your Salon-a-Thon based on input from salon managers and stylist who have had first-hand experience staging the event. Once you sign up, you will be contacted by a HTS representative and we will support you with the following materials.
You will also receive promotional support from HairToStay in our National and local advertising and PR campaigns. We are conducting an aggressive social media campaign to help create buzz. Your salon will be featured as a participant on our webpage and within our social media network.
