Wild Orchid Salon + Spa Achieves Ambassador Status in the Wigs for Kids National Salon Network

AUSTIN, Texas - Jan. 15, 2015 - PRLog -- January 15, 2015 - Austin, Texas – Wild Orchid Salon + Spa has achieved Ambassador Salon status in the Wigs for Kids Salon Network, making it one of a select group of salons nationwide. Ambassador status requires demonstrated knowledge of the Wigs for Kids program, skill in the proper cutting techniques for properly harvesting hair donations and a commitment to support the program through fund raising activities.

“We are proud to be a Wigs for Kids Ambassador Salon,” says Danielle Benson, Wild Orchid Salon + Spa Owner-Stylist. “It gives us an opportunity to use our training to really make a difference in the lives of these children, many who are in our community. We hope everyone in the community will support our efforts to support Wigs for Kids.”

“Ambassador salons play a major role in Wigs for Kids ultimately being able to provide hair systems to children in need,” says Jeffrey Paul, founder of the Wigs for Kids organization. “It takes anywhere from 15 - 30 ponytails to create a hair replacement system for a child. We rely on our talented network of Ambassadors to properly cut and prepare the hair that is so generously donated.”

“In over 30 years of operation, no child served by Wigs for Kids has paid for their hair replacement system,” added Paul. “The financial support provided by our Ambassador Salons through fundraising events, donations or sponsoring a child, ensures that we can continue to meet the needs of these children.”

Wild Orchid will announce a Cut-a-thon in the near future where Austin area residents can donate their hair to Wigs for Kids. Wild Orchid will also provide a 50% discount on any hair cut where the hair is donated to Wigs for Kids and meets the Wigs for Kids requirements which can be found on the Wigs for Kids website.
