Giving Back to Breast Cancer Victims

Is your salon looking for a way to give back? Maryanneandfriends.commay be the answer you are looking for. I just watched a very touching video that reminded me how much the beauty industry makes a difference in people's lives!

In the video below, hair stylist Martino Cartier talks about his vision of honoring his friend Maryanne McCormack (who was diagnosed with breast cancer). In order to show his support, he created a program called Maryanne and Friends, which brings together manufactures, platform artists, hairdressers and salon owners alike with one mission—to empower and inspire women who have breast cancer.

So what are you waiting for? Make the vow today and become a Maryanne and Friends' salon. Make the difference that will last a lifetime for someone in need. In this video you will see Cartier's take on how Maryanne inspired him and other hairdressers in the beauty industry to be their best and, to give back.

The website will be launched soon, so keep checking back to for more information on how your salon can help.
