Minx Contemporary Hair Boutique will support the Australian Hairdressing Council (AHC) nominated charity campaign for 2019, Charlie’s Angels, encouraging hair salons from around Australia to join together to raise much needed funds for brain cancer research on behalf of the Charlie Teo Foundation.
Throughout the month of March, hairdressers will become brain cancer ‘angels’ and will ask each of their clients for a $2 gold coin donation for every service in salon that month, which will be attributed towards the Charlie’s Angels campaign. Naturally, any additional donations from salons or clients are very welcome in the lead up to March. Australian Hairdressing Council CEO Sandy Chong says it is not a huge ask. “With the volume of clients that visit our salons every day, we believe it’s a great way to achieve significant numbers for this cause,” says Chong. “Brain cancer has touched many of our lives and we are committed to supporting the vital research undertaken by Professor Charlie Teo and his amazing team to make a real difference in the lives of those affected.”
Salon members of the AHC have a successful history raising significant funds for various charities across Australia. “Essentially, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia,” says Professor Charlie Teo. “It kills more young adults than any other cancer, yet it is the least funded of all the cancers despite those statistics. Our collaboration with the Australian Hairdressing Council came about because we saw a real fit between the Australian hair and beauty industries and brain cancer patients. We are asking for hairdressers around the country to become ‘angels’ for us by participating in this great initiative and help these patients get back into the community and feel normal again, which is very important when it comes to recovery and rehabilitation after brain surgery.”
Professor Teo will make a special announcement of the final funds raised by hair and beauty salons that have participated in the Charlie’s Angels campaign at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards in Sydney on Sunday 14 April.
