Two thousand salon stylists create the largest national fundraiser of its kind to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®
BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the month of October, ULTA Beauty is proud to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) with fundraising initiatives. As part of its efforts, customers can once again participate in the largest event of its kind -- THE SALON at ULTA Beauty's Cut-A-Thon! There is a salon in each of ULTA Beauty's 609 stores across the country and more than 2000 ULTA Salon stylists will participate.
Taking place on Sunday, October 13 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., the Cut-A-Thon offers a cut, shampoo and style by ULTA Beauty's professionally trained stylists for a minimum suggested donation of $10. One hundred percent of the donations benefit BCRF. In 2012, ULTA Beauty stylists performed more than 23,000 haircuts during the Cut-A-Thon and they are aiming to beat that record this year.
Visit THE SALON at ULTA Beauty to receive one of this fall's standout haircuts:
"Invisible Layers" Haircut
The stylist at the salons at ULTA Beauty have a secret to adding volume to long hair without cutting lots of visible layers. With special cutting techniques, layers are added to the haircut to provide hidden movement. Hair is left long enough to style in an updo but it has added volume when worn long. This cut works best for shoulder length hair and longer.
"Convertible Color" Haircut
Have highlighting that you want to show off? The convertible color haircut is worn short at the nape, and longer on top, allowing for a middle or side part, or a slick look with hair worn straight back with the help of some hair gel. Each style change shows off different highlights – the perfect cut for those who like short hair but want the versatility to change their look.
The epitome of textured movement, the shattered haircut is a dramatic combination of layers that creates a sexy, tousled look. The disconnected layers in this cut can work on any length of hair to produce an of-the-moment messy, yet stylish, appearance.
All haircuts at THE SALON at ULTA Beauty are styled with Redken and CHI professional products.
Since 2008, ULTA Beauty has been encouraging customers and employees to support research related to the causes, treatment, prevention and cure for breast cancer through exclusive product offerings, the Donate with a Kiss® campaign, and THE SALON at ULTA Beauty Cut-A-Thon. In 2012, ULTA Beauty raised more than 2 million dollars to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
