"Statistics show that 1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Life is precious - we need to make the most of it - we only live once - Wolo!"
On Saturday the 30th of April The EHSalon will be holding its second Daddy & Daughter Day to raise money for the Wolo Foundation who supportfamilies effected by Cancer throughout Sussex.
We would love any Daddies and Daughters (or Mummies, orbrothers or Uncles or sons....) to join us for a morning of fun, learning andbonding as you master a few hair techniques from our professional team too.
The base techniques taught at the event will be:
- Perfect Hair washing
- Blow drying & Easy Styling
- Braiding & Pinning
The last time we ran this event we all had so much fun, andthe smiles on each of the little girls (and their Daddies) faces clearly showed how much they got from it, far beyond the techniques they learnt.
No matter your level of hair-styling experience spending oneto one time with your princess at this event will be a great experience for youboth and you will be helping raise money for charity in the process.
EHSalon are supporting The Wolo Foundation.
When we first came across the Wolo Foundation family we knewthat we had found “our kind of people” who values very much align with our own,and so wanted to support their cause.
“Wolo” stands for We Only Live Once - an ethos that both thefamily that run the charity and we share. I urge you to look on their websiteto see how else you may be able to support them, or perhaps how they may be able to help you or a loved one.

Why do people need supportfrom Wolo?
After experiencing a cancer journey of our own, we highlighted a numberof problems we incurred along the way that we felt Wolo could help address.These included:
• Lack of support for those diagnosed
• Lack of support for the families of those diagnosed
• Lack of practical help
• Lack of mental health support
• The detrimental financial impact of a cancerdiagnosis
• Lack of support once active treatment is completed- people struggling to ‘move on’.
• The stigma associated with cancer
• Having a negative outlook on life
We have used this information along with our ethos, to create our coreoutcomes. They are instrumental to everything we do.
