Think Pink This October

Support breast cancer research and awareness with these specials around town offered in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Beauty

Go pink from head to toe with beauty buys. Posh KC Blow Dry Bar is giving to breast cancer research with each hot or light pink Hotheads Hair Extension purchased. And when you go into any of Hoopla’s locations and pick a pink polish for your manicure or pedicure, Hoopla will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Greater Kansas City. Purchasing a Hoopla mini-polish also gives back to the local branch of the breast cancer research and awareness organization.

Keep your tresses in place with one of Banded Breast Cancer Awareness’ headbands, available at Vincent+Greer Hair Studio. Each product purchased from the brand provides three meals for children in Uganda and 15 percent of proceeds are donated to the Young Survival Coalition.

Twenty percent of proceeds from the company’s $45 breast cancer awareness five-pack purchased online will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and all orders placed on Oct. 14 enter you to win a $50 Sock 101 shopping spree.

Kendra Scott’s Danielle and Elle earrings are a stylish staple, and now you have added incentive to pick up a pair in beautiful rose quartz: For each purchase, the company will gift a pair to a woman diagnosed with breast cancer & undergoing treatment in our local community through a partnership with Susan G.
