Unemployed? Get a (good) FREE hair cut!




Times are hard out here. Not only are people losing their jobs left and right -- their grown-out messy manes can be down right frightening to passersby.

Thank goodness some Tampa Bay stylists are thinking about those of us who have to look at these tragic coifs!

I kid. I kid.

In an effort to give back, this weekend Albie Mulcahy of the Velvet Salon is offering free cuts and styles to Tampa Bay residents who have lost their jobs.

Mulcahy will team up with former Vidal Sassoon artistic director Maurice Tidy and several other stylists from the area for this fabulous event!

The stylists hope to give fresh starts to those who have lost their jobs, starting with a new hair cut.

And don't expect a run of the mill snip snip either...Mulcahy has been described as a cross between Andy Warhol and Billy Idol. His Velvet Salon, also known as VLVT may be in St. Petersburg but it's London-chic. The shops slogan: Modern Hair for Modern People.

Free cuts depend on a first come, first serve basis. So be prompt. And bring your virtue with you... these stylists are depending on your honesty when it comes to your employment-status.
