Biolage Presents Makeover Greensburg

The Matrix Team

Biolage and Peel's Salon Services launched an initiative to help celebrate the rebirth of Greensburg, KS, a town devastated by a tornado on May 4, 2007. The tornado destroyed 95 percent of the city, forcing many to move elsewhere. Over the past three years, the residents that stayed have worked to rebuild the town, and on June 14, 2010, the town celebrated its renaissance with a day-long festival. To celebrate the re-opening of The Last Tangle Salon, located on Main Street in Greensburg, Peel's Salon Services, with the partnership of Biolage, Xenon International School of Hair Design, Kaemark and European Touch, hosted Makeover Greensburg. Residents of Greensburg and Kiowa County were invited to receive a complimentary haircut and makeup consultation from members of the Matrix Artistic Design Team and Xenon School of Hair Design. “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate how far we’ve come as a community," says Debbie Boyle, owner of The Last Tangle. "So much hard work and love has been put into this rebuild and now this is our chance to give back to everyone who has selflessly helped put ourselves back together." In addition, All cut hair was collected and donated to Matter of Trust, a non-profit organization that creates products from recycled hair used to soak up oil spills.
