Style to the Rescue

Salon Concrete hosts "Hairdressers for Haiyan" to help communities impacted by the devastating typhoon

When the Gulf Coast was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, Christine Zilinski, owner of Red Bank, New Jersey's Salon Concrete, stepped up to create a relief effort. Now she's harnessing the power of the industry, once again, for a community far from home-in Taclocan, Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan created massive destruction affecting 11 million people and wiping out 1.1 million homes. In response, Zilinski and Salon Concrete's team created "Hairdressers for Haiyan," a special event dedicated to raising funds to send people to Taclocan.

The event will be held at Salon Concrete on Sunday January 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Guests will be asked to donate $50 for a haircut and style. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to the cost of a six-person team from Hometown Heroes, which will be traveling to Tacloban to aid in the recovery efforts.

"The Hurricane Sandy disaster will always be a part of the people of New Jersey, who are eternally grateful for the aid that we received in our time of need. Now we are coming together as a community to help the people of Taclocan. It's time for us to be "Jersey Strong" again, for the people of the Philippines," says Zilinski.

Zilinski's goal is to raise $20,000 to fund a team that will go to Tacloban to construct prefabricated shelters, which were donated by Eco Building Products Inc. As part of a long term relief effort, funds from the event will also be used to train locals to build these same structures and to help get Taclocan back on its feet.
