Staff at a group of salons will be wearing it pink this month to raise money for people with breast cancer.

Uppercut Hair Group in Havering will be supporting the Wear It Pink breast cancer campaign on every Saturday in October.

Manageress Lauren Paton said: “I am so pleased to see my team come together for such a fantastic cauuse, we have all decided to donate the tips we earn during October to the breast cancer charity.”

The event will see workers at the salons swapping their normal black uniform for pink.

They will be wearing pink wigs, feather boas and accessories and to will be serving pink caskes and rose wine to their customers.

Clients can also get into the spirit by buying pink ribbon badges and they will also get the chance to donate every time they visit a salon.

All of the salons in the group will also be competing with one another to raise the most donations for the charity.

The mission of the campaign is to raise money to help fight against breast cancer, which is now the most common form of cancer with around 47,000 women being diagnosed each year in the UK.

Sam Faiers from The Only Way Is Essex who is a regular client of Uppercut has been named as the face of the campaign.
