This time of year is full of gifts, glitz and glamour. Most importantly, it’s also filled with gratitude. During the holiday season, it’s especially important to give thanks for the things in your life that you are grateful for. At Thirty Hair, we appreciate our amazing team, loyal guests and the organizations that impact our local community.
For Giving Tuesday, we invited our stylists to share a cause that they hold close to their hearts. In return, our salon will donate $20 to each charity that matters to them.
We invite you to read about the organizations that have impacted our team, loved ones and the community. If you feel inspired, we hope that you take the time to learn more and consider spreading the love by giving back this holiday season.
