Modern Wave Salon and Spa, 395 Cary-Algonquin Road, Cary, recently participated with Aveda Salons nationwide toward a Guinness World Record for haircuts and raised money locally for the Alliance for the Great Lakes, a regional organization dedicated to conserving and restoring the world’s largest fresh water resource. During the event, held on Earth Day April 22, Modern Wave performed 100 cuts with proceeds benefiting the Alliance and their efforts to protect the Great Lakes. Modern Wave hair stylists and staff were out in force during the cut-a-thon, which also featured celebrity appearances by former Blackhawk Murray Bannerman, shown above in middle of front row.
