As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Here at Posh, you might have noticed a little bit more pink around the salon. The pink ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness. The color pink, as well as the ribbons, are a way to showcase moral support for women with breast cancer. They are also used to represent the solidarity of women who are survivors or to remember those who fought bravely.
Around the salon, you’ll see a few ways you can directly impact and support breast cancer awareness! Today, we want to share those ways with you. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
SUPPORT HERE FOR THE GIRLS!
While we have an opportunity for you to support breast cancer research through Aveda (we’ll get to that next), we’ve also chosen to support a local cause. All month long, you’ll have the opportunity to make a donation at checkout in support of Here for the Girls Virginia. Here for the Girls (H4TG) is a nonprofit that works to improve the lives of young women affected by breast cancer. They do this in three ways – through Beyond Boobs!, an in-person support community, Pink Link, an online support community, and through H4TG events and opportunities. To learn more about their mission or to contact them about volunteering and fundraising, visit: https://www.hereforthegirls.org/
FUND RESEARCH BY HAND
Get your hands on this limited-edition hand relief moisturizing creme that treats your hands and funds breast cancer research. The rich hand creme intensely moisturizes dry hands with Andiroba oil and other plant hydrators. If you’ve tried the original hand relief moisturizing creme before, you know the magic that lies in this tube! It not only helps infuse skin with nourishment for moisturized, soft hands, but this month it also has a limited-edition cherry almond aroma.
With your purchase, $5 goes to support cruelty-free breast cancer research. Since 2001, the Aveda network has raised nearly $6 million for cruelty-free research through The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) to help find a cure. While we’re proud to house all Aveda products, this one is especially close to our hearts this month. Come try our tester hand creme and get one for yourself before the month is over. Hope for a cure unites us all in the #TimeToEndBreastCancer!

If you’re looking to show your support in a more VIBRANT way, we’d love to help you show it off. Our Full Spectrum Vibrants are semi-permanent colors that wash away after around 14 washes. With the colors “Poppy” and “Raspberry,” your stylist can give you the perfect shade of pink to show your support this month. Whether you want pink tips, just a few streaks, or to go all the way, we’re here to help you dream in pink.
As always, we thank you for the support and love you show Posh on a daily basis. As we finish up October in just two weeks, we hope you’ll join us in the fight against breast cancer as we show our support for the women whose lives it affects.
