On Tuesday, November 9, the inauguration of the “Social Hair Salon” took place in the presence of the Mayor of Athens, Costas Bakogiannis, the President of K.Y.D.A. Melinas Daskalaki, the general manager of the professional products department of L’Oréal Hellas Maria Corali, as well as the volunteers who participate in this pioneering project. This is a place that will now offer free haircuts and shaving to families living in difficult economic conditions and for our homeless fellow citizens.
The structure under the auspices of the Municipality of Athens and the Reception and Solidarity Center of the Municipality of Athens (KYADA) will operate only with volunteer hairdressers, in collaboration with Anastasios Stavropoulos, who is a renowned professional hairdresser, who has already offered important social work to his fellow human beings who need help.
“The Citizens’ Mutual Aid Center is a structure through which we take care with the required respect to offer to the homeless, but also to individuals and families in need, all the necessary goods and services for their dignified living,” said the Mayor of Athens. Costas Bakogiannis.
He then added: “The creation of the” Social Hairdresser “completes the wide range of services provided by the Municipality of Athens to all those who need our support. I would like to say a huge “thank you” to L’Oréal Professional Products who very generously contributed to our project. We owe an even bigger “thank you” to Anber, but also to the whole team of hairdressers, who will voluntarily support this effort. These are young people who could go on with their lives without looking away, but they choose to dedicate time and valuable energy to their fellow citizens, sending a message that “together we can do it”. “The ‘Social Hairdresser’ is a complementary ‘step’ in the process of social reintegration and we are proud of this initiative.”
In turn, the new president of KYADA, Melina Daskalaki stressed that the social salon is a boost for these people and not a simple haircut or shave. We listened to the needs of these people, as stated by the former president of KYADA, Grigoris Leon. The social hair salon is located at the Citizens’ Mutual Aid Center of the Municipality of Athens, at 2 Domokou Street and Philadelphia Street, opposite Larissa Station.
