Largo salons collect hair clippings for oil spill cleanup

Art of Hair, Global One Salon and Plaza Hair, all of Largo, are collecting hair clippings to be used during the cleanup of the Gulf of Mexico.

Employees at Art of Hair, 12551 Suite 10, Indian Rocks Road, will box up the donations and send them to an environmental group called A Matter of Trust, which is based in San Francisco and collects hair from salons and fur from pet groomers to clean up oil slicks. The hair and fur are stuffed into panty hose to mop up the oil. Art of Hair is also asking for donations of new panty hose.

For information, call (727) 593 0548.
