On October 29th, Salon Head Candy in Cherry Hill, NJ held a very special two-fold event–the first Cut-A-Thon for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as well as the relaunch of the salon joining forces with celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo to become a prestigious Arrojo Ambassador.
The salon began the day with free makeovers and “before and after” photos. Salon Head Candy owner Robin Dorton also lives with MS, and the event's goal was to raise as much money and awareness as possible. Besides the free makeovers, 100 percent of the proceeds from regular clients who came in for services were donated to the cause.
Among the guests who received makeovers were Kristen, a young woman who was diagnosed with MS when she was 27, and Sandy, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1999. Both women received amazing haircuts to frame their faces and give them a more youthful appearance.
Maxine, who was diagnosed with MS in 2000, was treated to a shampoo, scalp massage and blowout in lieu of a haircut, while another guest named Nancy also received a full makeup application in addition to a haircut.
After the Cut-A-Thon was complete, friends, family and clients filled the salon for the after party. Upon Nick Arrojo's arrival, the celebrated stylist posed for photos and helped raffle off gift baskets that included his Shine Luxe products and a movie-themed basket with candy, popcorn and DVDs.
The true highlight of the evening, however, was the impromptu haircut Arrojo gave a client who wore orange in support of MS. Head Candy Salon was grateful for the opportunity to be an Arrojo Ambassador salon and looks forward to everything they will accomplish with the support of their new partnership.
