Chop Those Tresses and Show Your Support for Superstorm Victims
Glam up for the summer on Tuesday, and help keep the safety net under superstorm victims strong. A dozen haircut salons at the shore are donating proceeds to the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund.
The cut-a-thon is the brainchild of Christina Messano, 22, a full-time collegian and Real Jersey Girl leader who earns a part-time living at The Cutting Crew in Sea Girt.
Each salon in the effort is turning over 10 percent of the cost of each cut to the organization headed by New Jersey's First Lady, Mary Pat Christie.
They hope to raise at least $10,000 and, in so doing, revive the cash flow of haircut businesses that lost clientele in the aftermath of the storm.
In addition to the Cutting Crew shops in Brick and Sea Girt, participants inlcude Spa Bella and Bridge Avenue Barbershop in Point Pleasant; Razberris in Toms River; J Michael Salon in Sea Girt; Paul Mitchell Beauty Academy, Roots Hair Lounge, Septembers Salon and Revolution Hair Salon, all in Brick; Aurelio's Salons in Toms River and Howell, Got Style in Beachwood; and Chakras Salon in Asbury Park.
