It isn't your run of the mill Winnebago, despite its standard RV appearance. This Winnebago is a 34-foot long mobile salon, equipped with three stylist stations, a shampoo bowl, a stress relieving position, and a reception area. It only differs from the average salon in its compact size and mobility.
Known as Project Daymaker, the Winnebago is part of a mission to bring hair and beauty services to the underprivileged with the goal of improving self-esteem and self-confidence. The project's motto is "licensed professionals donating hair and beauty services for those in need," and raising the standard of living for those normally unable to afford such care.
Saturday, Danville's rumi spa and salon teamed up with Project Daymaker at Woodlawn Children's Campus. Rumi's stylists volunteered their time to treat 25 Woodlawn students to haircuts and massages in the specially outfitted Winnebago.
Woodlawn campus director Lee Martin said the kids enjoyed the personal care they received during their haircuts. "It's a nice service to the kids, with a personal touch that they would not get anywhere else."
