Get your PINK on!

Want to be stylish and contribute to the fight against breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Well, thanks to Chappaqua’s Salon 228, you now can! Throughout the month of October, walk right into Salon 228 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM and get your pink hair extension!

The cost is $10, all of which will be contributed to Pink Hair for Hope, which funds research to find a cure for breast cancer. Or you can come get your hair extension at our upcoming “Get Your PINK On” special event at Salon 228 on Wednesday, October 15, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. If you come to our special Get Your PINK On event, wear pink to show support!

Or consider stopping in at Salon 228 on your way to or from Houlihan Lawrence, right across the street on South Greeley Avenue, on Saturday, October 18th, when Houlihan Lawrence hosts its annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer “Shop for the Cause” Boutique (10:00 AM-3:00PM). Jenny Harris and the other nice people there will have my flyers on hand telling people about the pink hair extensions.

Getting an extension done takes around a minute. They are able to be worn when shampooing and when using heat stylers (blow dryers, straighteners, curling irons, etc.). The hair extensions stay in for a while if desired, but if you want the extension removed Salon 228 would be happy to remove it for you any time you’d like.

I am running this fundraising campaign with the help of everyone at Salon 228, especially my stylist and dear friend Margaret D’Alessandro. I am doing this for my bat mitzvah project because I want to help women get and stay healthy. Please help me toward this goal and you’ll look fabulous doing so!
