Gants Hill hairdressers raise funds and give up tips for breast cancer research
Gants Hill hairdressers have swapped their black uniform for pink wigs and feather boas to raise money for breast cancer research.
Stylists at Uppercut, in Cranbrook Road, have worn pink every Saturday this month and served customers pink cakes and rose wine.
Manager Lauren Paton said: “I’m so pleased to see my team come together for such a fantastic cause.
“We have all decided to donate the tips we earn during October to the breast cancer charity.”
All money raised will go to Breast Cancer Campaign and the salon is also selling special styling products to benefit cancer charities.
