Chapin, SC (WLTX) -- In honor of breast cancer awareness, Midlands residents have scheduled an amateur hair cutting contest for October 17.
You can try your hand at creating a runway style at Maxwell's Salon on Beaufort Street in Chapin. Since pink is the official color of breast cancer awareness, participants can use mannequins will have pink hair and extensions.
Organizers say each contestant can get help from a professional stylist. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and all of the supplies will be donated by Giell Beauty Supply.
"Having lost my mother to breast cancer at a young age, I've always been sensitive to this cause. I really hope this event will be a success, and I am proud that we can be part of it", says Marcel Bouffard, CEO and Founder of Giell.
The winner will receive a Maxwell's Salon gift certificate for a full makeover. Entry to the competition is by way of a donation with all proceeds going to charity.
