If you're in a giving mood - and have 10 inches of hair you'd like to lop off for a good cause - GS Hair in Carmichael and its professional styling team is hosting the annual Love Salon Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
All "donated" hair will go to Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to children suffering from hair loss because of medical conditions. Last year, GS Hair got 20 volunteers to shear their tresses. They hope to double that number on Sunday.
Here's how it works: Donors must have at least 10 inches of clean, dry hair (or longer) from a ponytail. The pony will be cut and the donor's remaining hair coifed for free.
For Sunday's event, there will be a contest for the longest hair donated (a styling iron valued at $150 is the prize), plus gourmet cupcakes from Cupcake Craving and a raffle of Maly's gift basket of hair-styling products.
To get in on the Locks of Love donation drive, call GS Hair at (916) 481-2340. The salon is at 2415 Walnut Ave. in Carmichael. For a map or more info, click here.
Don't forget, Saturday is a Second Saturday so get out and support your local designers and artisans. Hey, it should be great weather!
