Get a haircut, help little Summer Moll

All salon proceeds Sunday will go to Summer Moll, 4, who was injured in a car crash that killed her mother Jennifer O’Boyle.

TAMPA — Looking for a little pampering for less? How about some "me-time" for charity?

Owners of Mystic Hair Salon & Spa are slashing the prices of haircuts, facials and massages Sunday to raise money for 5-year-old crash victim Summer Moll.

Moll was in her mother's car last year when a suspected drunken driver smashed into them, killing her mother and leaving Summer with a fractured skull and a long list of expensive surgeries.

Mystic owner MaryLynn Pearson said 16 stylists and four spa staff will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the salon, 13801 N Dale Mabry Highway, for scheduled appointments and walk-ins.

All of the proceeds will go to Summer, Pearson said.

Haircuts that normally range from $40 to $58 will go for $25 with a $10 blow dry. Mini-facials that start at $99 will go for $30. And a 25-minute relaxing massage will go for $30.

Plus, for $10 per entry or $25 for four entries, customers can take a shot at a raffle to win a year of free haircuts.

Firefighters who responded to Moll's accident will be cooking and selling food at the salon. Stylists will sell baked goods. And a few of the stylists' children will operate a lemonade stand.

Pearson credited her husband, Chris, with the "Salon-a-thon" idea after Mystic was approached to do Moll's grandmother's hair. He thought they could do more.

"We are very blessed," Pearson said. "Whatever the need is, we want to meet it."
