Hair Soaks Up Oil Spills

Salon donates hair clippings to the Gulf

Watch this video.

Renee' Dugan, owner of Timeless Spa & Salon, is responding to the massive oil spill in the Gulf by participating in a program with Matter of Trust.

As a Green Conscious business and person, our partnering with Matter of Trust is a natural solution for us to re-purpose hair clippings, and is a safe, non-toxic, and effective way to participate in the Gulf Spill cleanup by donating these clippings to make hair-mats that will soak up the oil.

1. Call us 315-822-1191 today. Leave a message...we WILL call you back.
2. Make a haircut appointment.
3. Bring in your used nylons with you to your appointment and place them in the drop box. (holes and runs are okay)
4. Leave happy knowing that you not only received a great haircut...but you also did your part to help out! :)

In return for your help...we are giving back to you!
Receive 25% off your next service with Timeless Spa & Salon.

Interesting Fact: A pound of hair can absorb one quart of oil in one minute, and hair mats can be wrung out and reused up to 100 times.

We will be collecting hair clippings for a second wave of donations and have also set up a nylons donation point at our location in West Winfield, NY. We encourage you to participate by coming in and getting a haircut and also bring along a pair of used, clean pantyhose with you for donation (holes and runs are okay).

Spread the word...Time is of the essence! Post this on your facebook page!

Thank you all in advance for your help! :))
