NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- They're donating in style. The Paul Mitchell Salon Schools in North Haven and Danbury, accepting bottled water and cash donations to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
"It means a lot to me because I wasn't personally affected by the hurricane but I know a lot of people that have been," Alisha Lopez-McGuigan, a student stylist, said.
"Just come down to the school, drop it off, and then we'll take care of it from there. We'll bring it to the Red Cross and it's going to stay in our local community first, and then whatever else is left over will go to New York, New Jersey," Mario Landino, the owner of the Paul Mitchell School, said.
Many student stylists are giving a cut too, so to speak.
"I know a lot of the stylists from this school and Captiva Salon are donating quite a few tips, so they're not keeping them for themselves, they're donating to the cause," Lopez-McGuigan said.
Just think about it. You might even have some bottled water left over from Hurricane Sandy and there are those who still need it. And for locals who've had some trouble maybe getting a shower lately, there's something special for them too.
"The people affected by Hurricane Sandy can come in, and for free they can get a wash and a blow-dry by some of our stylists," Lopez-McGuigan said.
Bring your donation to either the Paul Mitchell School in North Haven or Danbury, today or tomorrow. The Captiva salons in Wallingford and Milford are also participating. Take a little off the top and give a little to someone who truly needs it.
"Something that little, that we take for granted every day, that we just throw away, there's people that need it," Landino said. "Especially when you've lost power and you've lost everything. It's the little details, the little things, that we need."
