Each October Salon Bellezza supports the fight against breast cancer by offering pink hair extensions, hand-sewn decorative pink pumpkins, and raffles in exchange for donations. The Bellezza staff travels to Fall festivals, high schools, dance studios, sororities, offices, banks and more to help spread awareness and raise money.
Together, Team Bellezza has raised over $37,000 for The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and we are always looking for additional opportunities to raise awareness. To get involved in the 2017 fundraiser, please contact the salon directly.
