Eternal Salon's Makeovers for Cancer
A beautiful thing happened one Saturday in December when Eternal Salon and Loft in Rocky River held a holiday makeover to benefit the fight against cancer. Not only did the salon raise $300 from specially priced express services such as facials, shellac manis and satin hand massages, it was also able to contribute five wigs from loyal client signups.
The real star of the day was Erin Schuler of Strongsville, the wife of a brain cancer patient. Erin was nominated by Eternal Salon's new charity partner, The Gathering Place, a local cancer support center, to be pampered at the salon with a complementary makeover that included a cut/color/style with hair extensions, makeup, nail treatment and other services.
Erin also received a new shawl and gift basket donated by Cleveland fashion designer Stephanie Morris Nunn from her knit contour line Nadira. Ms. Nunn, whose work is multi award-winning, is visually impaired. Putting the frosting on the cake was maurice's Clothing Boutique in Rocky River, which contributed a $200 Visa gift card.
The festivities also included live acoustic music performed by veteran singers Khalil Malik Ismail and Victor Johnstone, who are well known around Cleveland's Karaoke scene. Beer Bellies, an up-and-coming local micro brewer, served assorted appetizers.
“Being able to help those who have been touched by cancer and giving them a moment where they can suspend time and enjoy a special moment for themselves is the best gift we can give,” stated Nicole Breitmayer, Eternal Salon owner. For people who are recovering from cancer, Eternal Salon offers organic hair color/styling products, natural hair styling, hair extension/wig options and natural nail care. The next makeover event with The Gathering Place will be held around Mother's Day.
