DISCOUNT BEAUTY FOR A CAUSE 

STUDENTS AT A BANGOR BEAUTY SCHOOL ARE OFFERING DISCOUNT HAIR, SKIN AND NAIL SERVICES THIS WEEKEND.

AND THEY’RE DOING IT TO MAKE A PRETTY PENNY FOR A LOCAL CHARITY.

THE SCISSORS WILL BE WORKING FURIOUSLY SATURDAY AT THE EMPIRE BEAUTY SCHOOL…FORMERLY KNOWN AS PIERRE’S…

EMPIRE IS HOLDING ITS FOURTH ANNUAL &quot:DAY OF BEAUTY&quot: TO BENEFIT LOCAL CHARITIES…

STUDENTS IN BANGOR HAVE SELECTED SPRUCE RUN…

&quot:every year we pick a different fundraiser to do and this year we’ve chosen domestic abuse because one in every 4 women is directly affected by domestic abuse.&quot:

JANIS THIBODEAU WILL BE ONE OF SEVERAL STUDENTS DOING HAIR, SKIN AND NAIL SERVICES SATURDAY FROM NINE TO FOUR…

&quot:cuts are five dollars and the proceeds will go right to spruce run for domestic abuse.&quot:
&quot:they are a really good organization and there’s so much of it out there…whether it be men, women or children that are involved in domestic abuse. We feel this is a good way to show our support.&quot:

BUT THOSE FIVE DOLLAR HAIRCUTS ARE USUALLY PRETTY POPULAR…SO IF YOU WANT TO GET IN ON THE ACTION…BETTER GET THERE EARLY..

&quot:It’s walk in only. We book up fast so we ask that clients get here early so we have enough students to provide the services.&quot:

AND THIS ISN’T JUST A ONE-DAY COMMITMENT TO THE CAUSE…

STUDENTS AND STAFF ARE ALSO SELLING AWARENESS RIBBONS…THOSE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SPRUCE RUN AS WELL…

THEY’RE EVEN WORKING WITH THE SHELTER ON TRAINING THESE FUTURE STYLISTS TO LOOK FOR SIGNS OF ABUSE…

&quot:they’re coming in to do a clinic on domestic violence. A lot of our students have a direct connection to domestic violence, whether it be themselves or somebody they know. It’s important for them to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms in their clients.&quot:

EMPIRE BEAUTY SCHOOL IS LOCATED AT THE BROADWAY SHOPPING CENTER IN BANGOR…

AGAIN, THE &quot:DAY OF BEAUTY&quot: EVENT RUNS FROM NINE TO FOUR SATURDAY…NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY.
