A Chico hair salon helped in the fight against breast cancer.
The Last Tangle Salon raised money and awareness through a unique hair style: pink hair extensions.
During October, the salon charged $10 for each hair extension and donated the profits to the American Cancer Society.
Salon owner Irene Garcia says cancer runs in her family and this fundraiser hit close to home.
“I’m hoping this will make people aware of the things they need to do: breast examinations, mammograms and the things they need to do be aware of their responsibility of taking care of their body,” Garcia said.
