“Many people in our hairdressing community have been seriously affected by Hurricane Sandy,” says BTC founder Mary Rector-Gable, who, along with PBA Executive Director Steve Sleeper and Wella North America CEO Reuben Carranza, helped lead the efforts in organizing Hairdressers Helping Hairdressers. “They have lost their belongings, their homes and their salons. Let’s not let them lose hope.” To that note, the industry has truly come together with the simple focus of raising as much money and awareness as possible to help hairdressers impacted by the hurricane. “We are rallying our industry to make an impact for the thousands of hairdressers who need assistance now,” adds Steve. “This is the time we all leave our jerseys at the door and come together as an industry to support our own,” says Reuben.
