Douglas David, managing partner of Douglas Carroll Salon has announced that it will host and sponsor a cut-a-thon to raise money for stylist Eileen Coyne-Homsher, who fell ill with vasculitis and a bacterial lung infection. The event will take place on Sunday, June 24 at the Douglas Carroll Salon, located in Raleigh, NC with 30 minute appointments beginning at noon. Coyne-Homsher, a dedicated stylist who has been with Douglas Carroll for more than 10 years, fell ill in early February. With a continued commitment to both the salon and her clients, Douglas Carroll Salon will donate its time and proceeds from services purchased and the sale of products and food to assist in the medical expenses for Coyne-Homsher and her family. Services will include haircuts for $30, buff and polish for both hands and feet for $20, waxing for $20 and chair massages for $20.
“Eileen has been a stylist with Douglas Carroll Salon for more than a decade,” said David. “Her talent, commitment and genuine appreciation for both the industry and her clients make Eileen an integral part of the Douglas Carroll Salon brand and family. We understand the impact such an illness has professionally and personally, which is why we have chosen to take time to use our talents to give back to Eileen. Our cut-a-thon is a way to celebrate Eileen while lending a hand to her family in one of the most challenging times they will experience.”
