City Pulse

By Jamie Allison Sanders

Let’s face it – kids hate getting their hair cut. But what if it came complete with balloon artists, toys and face painters? We’re betting your kid would be running to the nearest hair salon. And now thanks to professional haircare and hair color company Matrix, that can now be possible.

Just make an appointment at the Matrix Global Academy between 10am-4pm on Sunday, March 2nd and not only will you get rid of your child’s unsightly shag, you’ll be doing a world of good. Matrix is hosting the first “Give Big” Cut-A-Thon, where your donations of a mere $20 will go to support the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation. The Foundation works to prevent pediatric HIV infection through research, advocacy and both prevention and treatment programs.

At the event, a team of 20 talented Matrix stylists will trim and cut your kids’ hair to perfection. Each participant will receive a free VIP Matrix product gift bag. And as if that’s not enough, Matrix will match all donations and even provide an additional $20 per haircut to the Foundation. All in all? Definitely a cut above the rest.

WHEN: Sunday, March 2nd,10am-4pm
WHERE: Matrix Global Academy, 435 Hudson Street (at Leroy Street), call 917-606-9500 to make an appointment
