Whole Beauty Salon and Spa of Newton is donating a free haircut or express facial to health-care workers, policemen and firefighters for the month of June.

Per Gov. Charlie Baker’s reopening order, salons opened on Monday for hair services, and spa services will be available as early as June 8.

Olga Kwasniewski, owner of Whole Beauty Salon and Spa, was brainstorming on how she and her company can contribute and support a community during this unprecedented time of combating the virus.

“Donating our services to frontline workers seems an ultimate decision, especially when a basic haircut or a facial is becoming so essential for those who are working around the clock right now in order to keep us safe,” Kwasniewski said. “They are fighting for the lives of thousands of people. I genuinely believe that that willingness of our society to become as one force will help us to stand strong together against this virus.

“I am incredibly grateful to my team, who instantly agreed to support this mission,” she added. “Vanessa Lyn Lavin, a lead master stylist at Whole Beauty Salon, is overly excited to contribute her talent and skills to this cause.”

Whole Beauty Salon is operating under and complying with the state’s safety regulations. With those guidelines in place, the salon will accept up to three frontline workers per day with their choice of complimentary service. At the time of appointment, the frontline worker must present a valid ID that verifies occupation.

Appointments can be made online via www.vagaro.com/wholebeautysalon by selecting “First responder service,” via phone at 617-955-1551 or by visiting www.wholebeautysalon.com.
