Salons in the east are pitching in to help clean up the oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
Stylists are taking the hair that's been cut and stuffing it into panty hose to be sent to the Gulf and placed in the water to soak up the oil.
The Kinston Salon Smart Style has already collected trimmings from several customers to send off for the hair booms.
Companies like Hanes have already donated over 50,000 pairs of panty hose.
To find out more about salons that are collecting the hair for the booms you can call 252-944-7160.
