Northern New Jersey Salons Raise $6,000 for Haiti Relief

Dieci Lifestyle Spa in Livingston, NJ, recently held an in-salon Haircuts for Haiti event that raised more than $6,000 to benefit UNICEF’s relief efforts in Haiti in just four hours. Haircuts for Haiti at Dieci Lifestyle Spa featured a number of salon and spa services provided to guests at a discounted rate, with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to UNICEF for their Haiti relief efforts. Dieci Lifestyle Spa offered guests the following services: eyebrow and lip waxes, manicures, mini facials, massages, paraffin treatments, haircuts, color gloss and condition, mini makeup lessons, chair massage and blow-outs.

Owner Paul Gaglioti called on his salon industry friends in the area, including the owners of Bangz Salon and Wellness Spa in Montclair, Antonio’s Salon and Spa in Livington, Panico Salon and Spa in West Caldwell, and Sarracino Salon and Spa at Mira’s in Livingston, to provide technicians to participate in the event. Local jewelry store Dandy Lion Jewelry sold select pieces during the event, donating all proceeds to UNICEF.

“We are overcome with the outpouring of support from our peers from this event,” Gaglioti said. “We called on salon owners in the area and not one told me no. We are excited and blessed to be surrounded by such talent in the industry and good hearted people."
