Tickled Pink

By Rebecca Taras

There was never a better reason to make an appointment for a buff, polish, clip, color or rub. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization is sponsoring “Pretty In Pink,” a nation wide, thirty-one dollar fixed priced beauty blitz for the thirty-one days in October.  While there are a large amount of participants here in Chicago, I chose to highlight a handful that would allow for a different service at each establishment, thus allowing you to be pampered from head to toe.  Don’t forget to mention “pretty in pink” upon booking.
