By Elsie BoskampIn celebration of 25 years in business, Lillian Schon, owner of Lillian’s Hair Salon in Westhampton Beach, held a “Cut-A-Thon” on Sunday, offering $25 “cut-and-go” haircuts from noon to 4 p.m.

All proceeds from the event, which amounted to $4,500, were donated to the Making Headway Foundation, an organization that supports children that suffer from brain and spinal cord tumors, and funds research for treatments and a cure. The charity was co-founded by Clint and Elisa Greenbaum, two Westhampton Beach residents, in 1996 after their son, Jake, survived a brain tumor as a child.

Donating to charities has become a tradition for Ms. Schon, who used her 10-year anniversary to support a local Multiple Sclerosis foundation.

Ms. Schon said the Greenbaums have been clients for years and she wanted to use her latest business milestone as a way to give back and support the work that Making Headway does.

Ms. Schon has been in the beauty industry for the past 40 years, having gotten her start working at her older sister’s beauty salon as a child. For the past 25 years, Ms. Schon has specialized in bridal styling, hair coloring and highlights.

“The best part is that it’s a happy business,” said Ms. Schon, an East Moriches resident. “We make you look good and feel good. It’s especially rewarding when you have a challenge, and the client is happy and we make them smile.”
