Newport Hair Salon to Raise Money for Domestic Violence Shelter 

A hair salon in Newport will be cutting hair for a cause on Monday. The stylists at the Hair Shack on the Moosehead Trail are sponsoring a Cut-A-Thon.That means all the money they get from hair cuts from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Monday will be given directly to Spruce Run, the local domestic violence shelter.They’ll also be selling pins and if you don’t want a hair cut, but you’d like to help, they’ll also be accepting donations.”It’s a big issue in this area. We lost somebody that we knew because of domestic violence, and I really feel strong for it and that’s why we’re doing it.”, says Ame Richards, owner of the Hair Shack.For more information on the Cut-A-Thon or to make an appointment, give the hair shack a call at 368-5501.
