The fury of Super Storm Sandy wrecked communities, destroyed countless homes and displaced thousands of people leaving them without essentials: food, water, baby supplies, warm clothes, and more.
Christine Zilinski and her team at Salon Concrete are inviting all salons and stylists, wherever you are, to participate in the massive “Scissors for Sandy” cut-a-thon to provide relief to the thousands of individuals and devastated families!
