From Niesha Lofing:
A Gold River salon is offering free haircuts and discounts on other spa services to local police, firefighters and military personnel today and Thursday.
Mane Attraction Salon & Spa is offering the complimentary services from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and Thursday as part of its second Heroes Appreciation Salon Spa Day.
Law enforcement, fire and military personnel who go to the salon in uniform will receive a free haircut. Those not in uniform, but who can provide proof of employment, will receive 50 percent off their haircut.
The salon, which is an Aveda Concept SalonSpa, also is offering 50 percent off all its treatments during the event, including facials, waxing, hair color and massages.
Carrie Martin, one of the salon's owners, said they began the event last year as a way to show their appreciation to the men and women who work to keep the community safe.
The salon has many clients who are in that line of work. Several salon staff members also have family who are sworn public servants, she said.
"It's just something nice to give back to the community," Martin said.
The salon is at 11226 Gold Express Drive, Suite 204.
Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. To make an appointment or for questions, call (916) 631-7151.
