KITTANNING – Bryan Blose, manager and stylist for a local hair and nail salon, wants people to start thinking about the power of 10.

Blose, along with five other stylists at the Head To Toe salon, will cut and style customers' hair throughout the day on Oct. 10, for $10. And it's all for a good cause.

Every penny of the proceeds will go toward the Look Good, Feel Better (LGFB) nonprofit organization, said Blose.

The organization helps women who are going through cancer treatments feel better about their appearance by offering beauty tips and products about hair care, makeup, nail and skin care.

“I'm hoping the community will turn out and get a good cut and style for a good cause,” said Blose.

He said the salon, owned by his mother, Marie Blose, is one of more than 875 salons across the country participating in Wednesday's “Caring is Sexy Charity Cut-A-Thon” event.

The haircut marathon was organized by the hair care company Sexy Hair in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to help benefit LGFB.

The first 48 customers who show up at Head To Toe on Wednesday to help support the cause will receive a free gift, said Bryan Blose.

He plans to donate 12 hours of his time that day and the salon will be serving up cookies and punch along with stylish cuts.

Stylists participating in the event at Head To Toe are Bryan Blose, Marie Blose, Angela Miller, Dyllon Neal, Natasha Peters and D. Bell. Marcia Fox will be available during the evening to do nail art.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
