Sands Hairdressing were delighted to support a charity fashion show in aid of Welsh Hearts, at the Hilton hotel Cardiff, on 16th November.

The Sands team were busy backstage, styling models’ hair and makeup for catwalk glamour. We think they looked fabulous!

Sands Hairdressing are raising money for Welsh Hearts. We want to raise £1000 to buy a defibrillator with public access for use in the local community.  Welsh Hearts estimate that there are 8000 sudden cardiac arrests outside hospital in Wales every year. Survival rates are extremely poor – only 3%. But with timely intervention and the added benefit of a defibrillator (AED), we can save the lives of up to 50% or more.

Please help us to raise money and save lives by supporting our fundraising activities! Contact the salon to find out more.

Another fantastic year at Waterloo Fete

Stand

Sands Hairdressing were delighted to take part in this year’s Waterloo Fete. Luckily, the weather obliged and we had an extremely busy afternoon, offering manicures, head and back massages, hair plaiting, a lucky dip and a raffle in return for a donation to charity.

Raffle prize
Our raffle prize was a gorgeous hamper of Aveda products, worth over £150, which Caroline won.
Raffle winner
Our stall raised £330, all of which will be split between Marie Curie Holme Towers Hospice, the Children’s Cardiac Unit in UHW, and C.L.I.M.B (Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Disease)

All three charities support local families in the area and carry out the most incredible work. We’re looking forward to next year’s fete already!

Sands raise £1000 for WaterAid

Earth Month 2015

Sands Hairdressing raised £1000 for this year’s WaterAid appeal.

During the month of April, the Aveda network of haircare and skin professionals works together to raise funds for WaterAid. In the developing world dirty water, and poor sanitation and hygiene spread water related diseases that can be fatal. So far Aveda UK has raised over £400,000 for WaterAid’s work in India, Nepal and Ethiopia.
