Be a cut above and help Habitat for Humanity

“Haircuts for Habitat" is an opportunity to spoil yourself for others.

The fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity will be hosted by a variety of hair salons throughout Macomb County, Feb. 12 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

For the cost of a donation, patrons get a new-do - just in time for Valentine's Day.

"Proceeds will benefit Macomb County Habitat for Humanity as we further our mission and continue to build/rehabilitate houses in partnership with hard working families," said Nicole White, marketing and public relations manager for Macomb County Habitat for Humanity. "The participating salons are: Vibe Hair Studio, Shear Trends, Cheryl's Hair Network, Halina's Hair Salon, Andrew Marke Salon, and Gina's Salon & Spa."
