This is a great cause! Press release here:
Stylists statewide will return to the Salvage Station for the second annual Humble Hairdresser fundraiser on Sunday, July 22nd from 12:00 to 6 p.m. The Pop-Up Salon will take place under the PBR beer can with services for all ages such as haircuts, beard and bang trims, hair chalking and face painting
In celebration of the cause, West Asheville’s Archetype Brewing is releasing HumbleHops, a dry hopped Brett IPA specially for this event. All beer proceeds will benefit the Humble Hairdressers. Humble Hairdressers is a 501c3 non-profit organization run by volunteers, whose goal is to raise money so they can take high quality cuts to the streets for those who can’t afford to go to a salon. Funds raised will also help purchase new tools, and to allow the group to expand its reach.
“Our focus is to deliver no charge haircuts to anyone that needs a helping hand and can’t afford it,” Humble Hairdresser Jordan Carlson explains. We like to show up to homeless shelters and operate pop-up salons that have 100% free services – that’s where we got our start.”
The event is open to the public for donation based haircuts. Stylists and Salons interested in donating their services to Humble Hairdressers are encouraged to contact Wink Salon. Donations can also be made online at humblehairdressers.com or on their Facebook page.
The Salvage Station is located at 466 Riverside Drive in the River Arts District. The outdoor venue is family friendly with a Southern style restaurant and waterfront seating.
ABOUT HUMBLE HAIRDRESSERS:
The mission of Humble Hairdressers is to shift perceptions one cut at a time. In 2016, a group of stylists from Wink Salon began reaching out to the larger community in Asheville to deliver style to everyone, power to the people - especially those who needed to see themselves differently and to be seen differently.
