Avantgarde Hair Salon & Spa, Grand Rapids

Clip It For Kids Event Extended A Full Month

Due to overwhelming demand and response by the West Michigan community, Avantgarde de` Salon & Spa is pleased to announce that they have extended their annual Clip It For Kids event to the full month of April. “It was immediately evident that there was no way we could restrict this event to only one week,” says Bonnie Moore, Salon Owner. “We have been flooded with walk-in and phone call appointments, to the point that our staff have been overwhelmed. Limiting this event to only one week meant we would be turning away dozens of hair donations and that is something I’m just not willing to do,” says Moore. The salon staff would like extend a huge thank you to the people of West Michigan for their amazing response and willingness to contribute to this very import cause.

In support of Children With Hair Loss, both salon locations will be providing free haircuts for anyone willing to donate 8” of hair to Children with Hair Loss throughout the month of April. Anyone donating hair will also receive 25 percent off any additional services. This is a free event with all hair and financial donations to benefit Children With Hair Loss. Walk-in’s will be welcome but the salon asks that anyone who wishes to make a hair donation should schedule an appointment to ensure adequate staffing for this large event.

“Clip It For Kids is an event to benefit our most precious treasure, our children,” says Bonnie Moore, Salon Owner. Children With Hair Loss is a national non-profit organization that provides wigs to children with hair loss, free of charge. “The opportunity to provide a sick child with a free, real-hair, high quality wig can have a significant impact on their life. We feel honored to partner with the West Michigan community through this event, enabling all of us to make a difference in the life of a child,” says Moore.

Since opening its doors in October of 2007, ‘Making a Difference’ continues to be the driving force at Avantgarde de` Salon & Spa. Moore says, “The passion to ‘Make a Difference’ touches lives in immeasurable ways.” This founding principle sets Avantgarde apart from many other salon and day spas, and it has proved to be a very successful business model. Avantgarde continually strives to make a positive impact on the community, its clients and its employees, by hosting community events, giving away Mom Makeovers for Mother’s Day, sponsoring fundraising events for local missionaries and other non-profit organizations.

In addition to hosting Clip It For Kids, on April 1st Avantgarde will also be kicking off their Fifth Annual Mom Makeover Contest. Nominate a deserving mom to receive a free Mother’s Day Makeover. For more information and to submit a nomination, please go to www.avantgarde-salon.com.
