Brit stylist Lee Stafford has come across the pond.
• Sally Beauty Holdings has raised more than $1.3 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure during the first year of its partnership with the breast cancer charity.
From April 2011 through March 2012, Sally Beauty Holdings and its operating units, Sally Beauty Supply and CosmoProf, raised funds for Komen through a 5% donation of the sales price of designated products, as well as by collecting donations at the register in its stores. All Sally Beauty Holdings’ US-based operating units and many of its suppliers and manufacturers participated in the fundraising program.
Customers were involved in this effort by purchasing designated products in Sally Beauty Supply stores in the US this past October. Five percent of the sales price was donated to Susan G. Komen. Additionally, consumers were invited to join the cause year-round by placing donations in canisters at the registers in US Sally Beauty Supply stores.
Since September 2011, the purchase of any of the designated products in CosmoProf and Armstrong McCall stores triggered a donation to Komen of 5% of the sales price. Additionally, donations were accepted at the register in over 1,100 CosmoProf and Armstrong McCall stores.
The second year of Sally Beauty Holdings fundraising program for Susan G. Komen will run through March 31, 2013.
