If there are two things women care about most, their hair and giving back to the community must be in the running. This in mind, salons across the country are pairing up with non-profits the world over and offering cuts and coloring services that donate to their organization of choice.
It is no wonder, then, that Trashy Roots Salon & Spa has paired up with Children At Heart Ministries of The Texas Baptist Children’s Home for a day of luxury and giving back.
Their annual Cut-A-Thon invites walk-ins to $15 cuts and $10 waxing, allowing all proceeds to go to The Texas Baptist Children’s Home.
Children At Heart Ministries, through The Texas Baptist Children’s Home, is a Christian organization dedicated to serving children in the community and building better family relationships. The organization strives to break the cycle of child abuse and family crisis through ministry and support.
Trashy Roots owner Anna Craig
For all of those curlies here in Austin, TX, Trashy Roots Salon & Spa owner Anna Craig is a DevaCurl certified Stylist and the 2011 regional winner of the Salute to Stylists Contest hosted by NaturallyCurly.com, Inc.
Craig specializes in precision and curly girl haircuts. She also has numerous interviews and videos on both NaturallyCurly.com and CurlStylist.
In addition, the salon employs two other DevaCurl certified stylists, one of whom speaks Spanish, and an extensionist.
So, if you are looking for a great curly cut, good conversation or some longer locks that are good for you and the community (talk about multitasking!), head over to Trashy Roots Salon & Spa, Sunday, July 31.
Keep in mind that salon will only be taking walk-ins and only accepting cash.
For all of those curlies who do not live in Austin, but who would still like to donate to the cause, you can head over to the Children At Heart Ministries site and make a quick donation online. Also, keep a lookout for local salon philanthropy activities in your hometown. Your salon may just be featured next!
