34 brave young girls chopped off their ponytails last week, and Sustainable Salons Australia was there to facilitate the cut. Eight teachers from TAFE Sydney NSW donated their time and expertise, while the girls donated their prized locks for a good cause.
The Wenona Girls High school participated in the ponytail donation to contribute to The Variety Charity. The organisation will turn their hair into wigs for ill children, who have lost their own hair due to alopecia, cancers and other diseases. From this one event, Sustainable Salons collected 139 ponytails, all of young, uncoloured hair that is ideal for children’s wigs.
Under the tutelage of Sustainable Salons Australia Director Paul Frasca, the girls were given chic, contemporary cuts to replace their previously-long locks.
This is just one of many community-based events for Sustainable Salons Australia, who partners with other groups in unique ideas that promote sustainability and charity within the local hairdressing community.
