Clip for the Cure

By Lauren Salapatek | 09/23/2010 11:17:13 AM


In October, Regis Corporation will kick off its annual Clip for the Cure, a month-long campaign to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To date, the company’s dedicated stylists and clients have raised more than $6.5 million for the cause.

On select days throughout the month, thousands of stylists at participating Regis Salons, SmartStyle, Supercuts, MasterCuts, Fiesta Salons, HairMasters and TGF Hair Salons will offer specially priced hair cuts or donate a percentage of each hair cut to the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

Also, as part of the campaign, salons* will donate 10 percent of net proceeds from the sale of private label products. To further raise awareness, salons participating in the month-long campaign will have limited-edition pink products available for purchase, including tote bags, tumblers and pins.

In 1990, the Regis Corporation began efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer research, education and prevention. The Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research provides support for early diagnosis, prevention, treatment and a cure. Currently, the Foundation is supporting research at Mayo Clinic, along with other centers conducting breast cancer research.
