Scissors for Sandy Benefits Storm Victims

Jan Hillenmeyer | January 23, 2013 | 2:44 PM

Christine Zilinski, owner of Salon Concrete in Red Bank, New Jersey, created Scissors for Sandy, a nationwide cut-a-thon to provide relief to thousands of devastated and displaced Hurricane Sandy victims, many of whom received free haircuts at the event. 

Scissors for Sandy was held in the ballroom of the Berkeley Hotel in Asbury Park, New Jersey and more than 50 stylists donated their time, including guest artists Nick Berardi of Wella Education & NickEducation.com., Traci Sakosits, Creative Director Sassoon Academy, and Randy Taylor & Gerard Scarpaci, co-founders of Hairbrained. Scissors for Sandy raised $27,000 to benefit two local organizations, Heroes Restore the Shore and The Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation. Both programs donate directly to those affected by Hurricane Sandy 

 “The aftermath of Sandy has been a surreal experience.  Many of our longtime friends and clients have lost their homes, but one thing is for sure, they have not lost their spirit,” says Christine Zilinski.  “I have volunteered in some of the hardest hit communities and we are working together to clean, and eventually rebuild, our community.  This disaster will always be a part of us. I created Scissors for Sandy to help ease the burden of those who are suffering the most.” 

Zilinski acknowledge the support of numerous manufactures and distributors including P&G Professional, Davines, Takara Belmont, and DePasquale Salon Systems, plus Lush Cosmetics, Progesterone.com, Number 4 Hair Care, Kitschen Catering and Sugar Rush.
