And thanks to all of the hair stylists who volunteered their time to cut hair – Lisa Butti, formerly of Salon Bucci, Lyn Moelich, Heather and Tab from the Tribe Hair Salon, Brett from Beige Blond, and all the stylists from Bishops Barbershop who participated in today’s event. We had over eighty people get their hair cut in our backroom barber shop, and collected over 50 pounds of hair. This hair will be sent to the Meg Perry Center for Environmental Peace and Justice in New Orleans, where it will be turned into hair rugs to help soak up the oil.  Check the KBOO website in the next few days for recordings of today's programs.
