we must first begin with the communities we work and live in.

We also belong the Hairdressers Against AIDS & hope that our continued efforts help to end the fight against AIDS.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation- Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. Many efforts are made in helping to find a cure for CF. One that we are proud to be a sponsor of is the Ybor Experience an annual event that has raised almost $60,000 in the past 3 years!
We offer additional support to by organizing and participating in Cut-a-thons and walks, gift certificate give-aways, silent auctions, fashion shows, and other fund-raising activities.
