At dsparada Color Salon, the month of October is a very important time of year where we recognize those we love and those we have lost to breast cancer. We feel it is very important to help those in need succeed in their fight against breast cancer! That is why for the entire month of October, dsparada Color Salon will be donating $2.00 from every sale to the Pretty in Pink Foundation to provide those with breast cancer, who do not have great health insurance, gain some financial support!
Pretty in Pink is a local organization that serves people diagnosed with breast cancer, who have limitations with their health insurance benefits, or cannot afford health insurance. When breast cancer is found, many times these people have to go without treatment, or delay their treatment, causing the cancer to get worse. Getting your hair done at dsparada during October is a great opportunity to support an amazing local cause!
Another way you can show your support is by adding a little pink to that beautiful hair and telling people that you support a great foundation! We could color a small section of your hair, or we have great pink hair chalk that washes out with water! Call us and make an appointment today to show your support, and help us fight breast cancer!

As a stylist I cannot recall ever telling anyone, “don’t worry, it will grow back!” But this past weekend I found myself saying it several times and it felt really good! This is because I had the wonderful opportunity to shave heads for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. (more…)
dsparada is a proud sponsor of the Christmas Extravaganza for the Masonic Orphanage Home for Children in Oxford, NC. With the help and support of various sponsors, in 2010 we provided gifts for the children of the orphanage. This year will be the 12th Annual Extravaganza and for our eighth year, dsparada will again lend their support.
Last year we the sponsors provided gifts for 62 children and sadly, this year there are 78 children ranging from newborns to 21. The Masonic Home for Children provides a safe environment for all ages including high school and college. Donations help the orphanage tremendously as it gives them a chance to expand their programs and activities for the children on campus and prepare for children who will become a part of their family.
The children who are admitted to the Masonic Home for Children come from various backgrounds in life. Like your children, grandchildren, and your neighbor’s children, they want to be treated with respect, love and dignity. Our gifts will be utilized in a special way to enhance the quality of their lives for many years to come.
dsparada will attend the Christmas Tree Decorating Party on December 1 at the Masonic Orphanage in Oxford. We will donate the Christmas tree and participate in the decorating of the Christmas tree at the Orphanage. If you would like to help dsparada to provide a better holiday for these children, please contact Don or any of the talented stylists at dsparada Color Salon.
