April’s Heroes of The Month: The Stylists At The Mark Garrison Salon

Pantene Beautiful Lengths would like to honor the stylists at The Mark Garrison Salon in New York City as April’s Heroes of The Month!

As a passionate and enthusiastic supporter of Pantene Beautiful Lengths, the Mark Garrison Salon is committed to spreading the word about the program. The salon offers free haircuts for people who are interested in donating to Pantene Beautiful Lengths every Wednesday and a 50% discount on haircuts for donors every other day.

On average,  the Mark Garrison Salon will have 40 Pantene Beautiful Lengths clients walk through its doors each month! And for every client who is kind enough to donate his or her hair, the stylists thank them for participating in our cause by giving them a beautiful, wearable haircut.

The salon and stylists proudly promote themselves as a destination for Pantene Beautiful Lengths and we are so grateful for their incredible kindness and support!

Peter Kadushin and Leo Standora over at write a great story about Merideth Sheriden and the recent event at the Mark Garrison Salon.

Ever since Meredith Sherman was in kindergarten, she’s worn her hair long – way past shoulder length.

But yesterday the 30-year-old social worker from Brooklyn walked into celebrity hairstylist Mark Garrison’s Salon on E. 60th St. and had her brunette tresses trimmed so much you could see her neck.

“I bet I just lost 2 pounds,” Sherman smiled wistfully, as Garrison showed her the hank of hair he had just shorn. “I wanted to do a good deed, but having it look this good is an extra.”

Raine Marlowe Graves over at writes a great post about the Mark Garrison cutting event that occurred on Wednesday April 25th.

Mark and his team donated his salon for the evening and took in 38 tails in a few hours (even a cameraman got caught up in the goodwill and bent his head to the scissors). The salon must have anticipated last minute panic attacks and prepared for the event with soothing fragrant flowers, cheese and crackers (always a good distraction for me) and roaming team members to provide last minute calming.
