A stylish haircut creates a better first impression than starting a date with a high five or surprising an interviewer with breakfast in bed. Fashion a chic impression maker and support a great cause with today's Groupon for The Trade Foundation's Cut-for-a-Cause event on Sunday, July 17. Choose between the following options:
• For $35, you get a styled cut at any participating salon (a $75 average value). Click here for a full list of participating locations.
• You can make a $35 donation directly to The Trade Foundation.
The Trade Foundation, in collaboration with Hattori Hanzo Shears, works toward cutting women free from the chains of human trafficking and child prostitution by passing on the necessary knowledge to start careers in hair styling. The philanthropic professionals travel to developing countries, donating new pairs of shears and educating women on the art of follicle finesse, proffering a proud, safe way to provide for themselves and their families. For one day, more than 25 participating salons will snip and shape tresses for a special price, with all proceeds from the Cut-for-a-Cause event going toward The Trade Foundation's initiatives. Patrons relax into a pulchritudinous reverie as savvy stylists whisk their shears through head tails, lopping off dead ends and creating hairstyles normally reserved for celebrity altruists such as Angelina Jolie or Daddy Warbucks.
Though Groupon users can only purchase one styled cut, they can use the second option of today's deal to make additional donations directly to the cause. Skip over to The Trade Foundation's website for more information on its work and other opportunities to get involved.
