Need a trim? On Thursday, Aug. 18, get a haircut and help an animal when Witchita, Kan.-based hairstylist Patrick Lomantini hits Kenneth's Studio for Hair (2100 St. Charles Ave., 528-8585; www.kennethsstudio.com) for the New Orleans stop on his 50 Haircuts in 50 States in 50 Days tour. From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Lomantini will provide haircuts for a minimum donation of $20, all of which will go to the LA SPCA animal shelter.
"His idea was to spend one day cutting hair and to donate all the proceeds to a humane society," says Katherine LeBlanc, LA SPCA's communications director. "It was so successful he decided to take it on tour."
New Orleans is the 18th stop on the tour, which kicks off Aug. 1 in Augusta, Maine. Walk-ins are welcomed, but appointments are encouraged and can be scheduled by calling the salon. — Lindsey Darnell
