We get it. The holidays are the most chaotic time of the year. From finding the best gifts for your loved ones to creating the perfect setup for your Thanksgiving dinner, it can be hard to keep sight of the meaning behind the holidays we dedicate our time to preparing for. That’s why at Thirty Hair, we take a deep breath and re-center our mindset every year for Giving Tuesday.
This Giving Tuesday, November 28th, Thirty Hair is taking the opportunity to shine a light on the causes most important to us. This salon tradition is extremely close to our hearts as we give each member of our team a chance to educate one another on a charity that is important to them, and in turn, donate $20 to each charity.
If you connect with any of the charities listed below, please take a moment to learn more and think about how you can give back this holiday season.
