Gary Bilello: I'm looking for people that really, actually need it. We tried to go age 35 and older. We feel that they have a little more disadvantage in the working field. And we just wanted them to feel good and look better and have more confidence about themselves.
The free treatments are part of a program called First Impressions. The Salon is partnering with a local employment agency to make it happen. in the future, free services will be provided at both the Greensboro and High Point Avanti locations on an appointment basis.
