Salon Owner Hosts Charity Show Benefitting Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Artur Kirsh styles a model before the show.

Elaine Travis, longtime hairdresser and now owner of Splash Hair Studio near Philadelphia, staged a charitable hair and fashion show to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. With the Woman of the Year title from the Society— an honor bestowed on top philanthropists throughout the country— in her sights, she has motivated her staff to give back. With help from Tru Beauty Concepts in Huntingdon Valley and Artur Kirsh, stylist and owner of The Studio CL, six models were styled and walked the runway in new spring fashions. The event raised $2,000 and brought together local salon owners and their staff. All proceeds benefited blood cancer research and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Travis and her staff also donated proceeds from discounted salon treatments and blow-dries at Splash to the cause to boost her chances in the competition. The Man and Woman of the Year will be announced at the Grand Finale Gala in Philadelphia at the end of this month.— Jennifer Barnes
