Breast Cancer Awareness spans Pink Hair Extensions & Pink Hair Feathers
The Beauty Industry has always been a staunch supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The nature of our industry is to make people look and feel better about themselves and professionals in our industry literally touch those dealing with cancer in a very special and personal way. Here is one heartfelt story of how this breast cancer patient got a new look on life from a visit to her hairdresser.
The beauty industry is flooded with hairdressing professionals and product manufacturers who have stepped up to the plate for Breast Cancer awareness. The pink products you see popping up everywhere this month are specifically branded to support the cause and . . . there are plenty of them.
Arguably, two of the newest and hottest additions of ‘pink products’ in the hair industry this year are pink hair extensions and pink feather extensions! How much more fun can a girl have while donating to the cause?
When clients donate $10.00 or more at participating hairdressing salons to Pink Hair for Hope, they will receive a 100% natural pink hair extension or feather to raise awareness for the cause. Clients can choose from a clip-in extension or a professionally bonded hair extension . . . your choice! So if your hairdressing salon isn’t participating yet . . . encourage them to get on board!
The first National Breast Cancer Awareness program was a week-long event which took place in October 1985 in order to bring to light the need for more education about breast cancer. The founding members of the Board of Sponsors to the National Breast Cancer Awareness (NBCAM) organization were, The American Academy of Family Physicians, AstraZeneca Healthcare Foundation and CancerCare, Inc. Twenty seven years ago, they made known the vital need for access to mammography and further education by testifying before a U.S. Congressional Committee, speaking with the media and distributing pamphlets.
They remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-breast exams, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms, adhering to prescribed treatment, and knowing the facts about re-occurrence . . . A big THANKS to all!
