On Monday, December 19th, 2011, Amber Collins, the reigning 2011 Miss New York and 2012 Miss New York contestants along with stylists from Patrick Melville Salon spread holiday cheer to children at the Ronald McDonald House New York by gifting them with new wigs from HairArt, the manufacturers of fine, European Hair products, including wigs, extensions and other all-natural hair.

“Our new collection of wigs are designed to fit smaller heads and will instantly boost confidence levels of children in need. We hope that this small gesture can relieve some of their worry during such a trying time in their young lives and bring smiles to their little face,” says HairArt Founder, Jackie Yu.

Miss New York Amber Collins and the 2012 contestants along with Patrick Melville and Rick Wellman of the Patrick Melville Salon delivered the new wigs during the annual Israeli Consulate's holiday and Hanukkah party, bringing instant smiles to them and their parents.

By partnering with the Ronald McDonald House and donating wigs to children in need, HairArt hopes the new wigs will mark a beginning of a sweet year for them and their families.

HairArt partnered with the Patrick Melville Salon in New York City and owners, Patrick Melville and Rick Wellman were on hand to help the children select and style their new wigs. To make the moment even more exciting for the kids, the Reigning Miss New York, Amber Collins and the 2012 Miss New York contestants were at the event to also hand out the wigs and play with the kids.
