“The Drew Barrymore Show” will feature the Bayville show
BERKELEY, NJ – Hair Fantasy in Bayville offered free makeovers to people who went through tough times last year, and Drew Barrymore has taken note.
Owner Michele Fury and salon stylists will be interviewed during a segment of âThe Drew Barrymore Showâ Monday, September 27 at 9 am on CBS.
Fury said the episode will focus on the different ways people give back in their communities. âThe Drew Barrymore Showâ hooked up with Fury after the show’s producers found an article about the show’s offer. Read more: Bayville Salon Continues to Help People ‘Move On’
âIt feels good to make people happy,â Fury told Patch Thursday. âWhat is a color box? It really only takes a little of our time. “
When Hair Fantasy reopened during the pandemic in the summer of 2020, Fury realized that many of his clients weren’t pampered as often.
Some people lost their jobs or worked fewer hours at work to stay home with their kids for virtual learning, losing income that once covered the cost of their hair care.
To help people who are struggling to re-enter the workforce or anyone who went through a rough patch last year, Fury donated 10% of his sales to cover the cost of dyeing and makeup for them. .
Fury, who has worked in salons for 26 years, said she understands what a lot of people are going through and is keen to help them get back on their feet.
The salon recently had a makeover for a woman whose sister died and now looks after her nephew.
âI can understand what she’s going through. When you take care of someone who is sick, you forget about yourself,â Fury said.
âJust she was trying to sit there, trying to figure out that she was going to do every step of the hair color, trying to fit her budget because she had just started her job – I said: “We’re going to start it for you, ‘and she couldn’t believe it.”
The cost of hair dye and makeup for her would have totaled around $ 260.
Fury paid it off after his own salon struggled throughout the pandemic amid closures and capacity restrictions. Hair Fantasy had only been open for six months when Fury had to close the salon in March 2020.
The show is still recovering from closures, Fury said.
âWe’re getting busier and busier. Our regulars are coming back and we’re getting new customers,â she said. “It’s difficult because we’re so far behind that we have to catch up.”
Hair Fantasy always strives to give two people free makeovers every month. Anyone interested should send an email to [email protected] to make an appointment.
