HIP Salon Stylist Ryan Brown (in back) shaves Emily Orabutt (right) during the Shamrock Shave March 15 in the St. Mary Margaret gym in Algonquin.

HIP Stylist Ryan Brown pitched in to help shave the heads of 60 men, women and children as part of the 6th Annual Shamrock Shave on March 15 in Algonquin.

Ryan’s volunteering contributed to St. Margaret Mary parish and community raising more than $40,000 to benefit the needy through the St. Vincent DePaul Society and cancer research through the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. You can read more about the Shamrock Shave benefit on St Margaret Mary’s webpage.

What’s really cool is that one of Ryan’s shaved heads belongs to Emily Orabutt, a HIP Salon friend who raised the most – more than $4,200 – for the event.

Congrats to Emily and all the Shamrock Shave participants for an awesome showing!

You guys, (Sham)ROCK!
