Hair Fairies - The Head Lice Helpers will hold a one-day only, free head lice screening event in both Manhattan & Los Angeles on Saturday, March 12, 2005. Two lucky winners will win an Apple ipod Mini.

Look out lousy lice, here come the Hair Fairies. On Saturday, March 12th from 10:00am – 3:00pm, Hair Fairies – The Head Lice Helpers will be offering free head lice screenings in Manhattan and Los Angeles to concerned parents and their children. The screenings will take place at 1026 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 502 New York, NY, and 8250 West 3rd Street, Suite 202 Los Angeles, CA 90048.

On top of offering the free screenings, each family will receive a Hair Fairies “Nit-Zapping” Kit. The kit contains their signature Prevention Oil and their Lice Repellant Spray, both of which are 100% natural, organic and safe. Plus each family will be registered to win an Apple ipod Mini.

Now this may not seem like a great way to spend a Saturday, but finding out that your child has lice can be much worse. “We decided to hold this free lice screening event in celebration of the opening of our new salon in Manhattan,” says Maria Botham, Hair Fairies President and resident head lice expert.

Hair Fairies opened their second salon in Manhattan earlier this year and have quickly gained the praises of local families and schools. Manhattan, like Los Angeles, has a “no-nit” policy, meaning if a child is found to have head lice at school, they must be immediately removed from school. “We work with local Schools, Pediatricians and Parents to help minimize the spread of head lice,” continues Ms. Botham.

Hair Fairies salons are unique to say the least. The atmosphere is anything but uptight. Both locations are filled with kids playing Game Boys or watching the latest animated releases and there are toys galore. “We try to take what can be a very, very stressful time for parents and kids and turn it into a fun experience,” says Nancy Romero, Manager of the Manhattan salon. In sticking with their “it’s cool to have your bugs removed at Hair Fairies” theme, there will be a raffle for a free Apple ipod Mini.

Head lice are a very common problem among school-aged children. Based on national statistics, around 12 million people contract head lice annually; thousands of cases are expected in Los Angeles and New York in 2005. Though head lice are not dangerous, they are annoying and take away from valuable school time.

Appointments are necessary, so call 323-655-6555 or 212-719-5222 to schedule a time or to find out more.

Hair Fairies has been a trusted name in the head lice removal business since 1999. They have been featured in publications such as People Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, and the Washington Times. Physicians write prescriptions for salon services daily and many insurance carriers accept Hair Fairies services as a treatment method for head lice. For more information visit
