This event was organized by L’Oréal professional in collaboration with the Lebanese breast cancer foundation. It took place at ABC Verdun on Sunday, Oct.28, 2018 from 3 p.m. till 7 p.m. where more than 20 hairdressers from L’Oréal participated in this event for free.

The participants who cut their hair came from different genders and different age groups but all of them were ready to give part of their hair to show their support.

“I felt really happy when part of my hair was cut off knowing that it’s going to draw a smile on another women,” said one of the participants. “I thank L’Oréal and the Lebanese cancer Foundation for organizing such a beautiful event.”
