The massive storm that devastated parts of the Southeast, including Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky, has not only wreaked havoc on homes and residents, but it has affected salons in these areas.

Now the PBA/NCA Disaster Relief Fund is asking all beauty industry professionals to make their tax-deductible donations to the PBA/NCA Disaster Relief Fund, in an effort to help support fellow beauty professionals in need. The fund will provide 100 percent of all funds raised directly to beauty industry professionals in need.

Particularly hard hit, were parts of Tennessee, with some areas receiving as much as 12 inches of rain leading to numerous road closures and forcing evacuations. Currently, President Obama has declared 10 Tennessee counties disaster areas.
