If you’re in need of a new spring hairstyle look no further than Gina Bianca Hair, whose stylists will be donating four hours of their services entirely to The Autism Society this month.
Gina Bianca, a full-service salon located on the Waterbury Turnpike in Plantsville, will charge nothing but a $30 donation to The Autism Society for all haircuts given from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29.
In honor of Autism Awareness Month, this cut-a-thon will raise money for the nation’s leading autism organization. “We feel confident that every dollar we raise and donate will be applied to its fullest potential in benefiting the overall cause,” said Varyssa Walker, director of public relations for the salon.
According to their website, The Autism Society “exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism.” Proceeds will be put toward raising awareness, sponsoring research and providing services for individuals across the spectrum, efforts that stylists and staff members at Gina Bianca are passionate about fundraising for.
“This donation will go to continuous research for the condition, as well as benefitting the families that are already affected by the day-to-day stresses of autism,” said Walker.
No appointments are necessary for the four-hour event, and stylists will be working hard to make the fundraiser as beneficial as possible. “Our event will be full of great people and great vibes all working towards a common goal together,” said Walker.
In addition to their one-day event, Gina Bianca will be donating $10 of every Awapuhi Treatment purchase during the entire month of April. This service uses Awapuhi Keratriplex drops to provide hair with a protein blend that reduces hair breakage and promotes hair health.
A visit to Gina Bianca salon this month will benefit not only the health and style of your hair, but the health and wellness of all those living with autism by supporting the mission of The Autism Society. The staff at Gina Bianca hopes their services will offer an opportunity to support individuals and families living with autism, in addition to providing great new hairstyles, “remember, giving back is the new black” said Walker.
