The Annual Cut-a-thon primary aims are to continue to raise awareness of Breast Cancer in the Cayman Islands. Darla the owner of EHD&DS and her sister Darna (a business partner at the time)established this event in loving memory of an aunt who suffered in silence and passed away to Breast Cancer 20 plus years ago.After exploring different ways to make this possible they decided to use their profession of Cosmetology (Hair & Beauty) in creating a fun and rewarding event for the community to benefit from. Other Salon and Spa professionals were invited to participate and so began Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa Annual Cut-A-Thon. The funds generated annually from this event are donated to The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens. They in turn use the funds to help persons who are unable to help themselves financially.
This year technical service volunteers are from Privé Beauty Studio, Focus Hair and Beauty, Pure Hair Salon and Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa. They will be offering services to the public with HUGH SAVINGS such as wet cuts for men, women & children, mini manicures and eyebrow threading!
Included on the menu again this year is their well-known $1 a minute massage. (Attached is a service menu).
Joining them again this year is visiting Master Stylist Roby Powers from TIGI New York who will be offering hair cutting services.
Roby Powers grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina and currently resides in New York City, NY. He got his start in a small salon in North Carolina and has now been in the industry for twenty-one years and is inspired by street fashion, art, and everyday life. When asked what drew him to TIGI in the first place, Roby said “The education.” Over the years, he has had a hand in several events with TIGI, including the Behind The Chair RAW competition, World Release in London and the US, New York Fashion Week, Miami Fashion Week, and more!
