To honor women undergoing chemotherapy, KODA Salon owner and stylist Cheng Tan is offering up free services for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From Oct. 15 to 31, Tan is offering complimentary chemotherapy hair-loss consultations, head shaving, wig styling and advice on how to wear headscarves.

“A woman’s hair is such a big part of her femininity, and the fear of losing it creates so much anxiety when she’s initially diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Tan.

To participate, breast cancer patients are asked to bring in their own wigs and scarves and request an appointment before Oct. 31. KODA Salon is located at 7843 Girard Ave., Ste. C. For more information, call (858) 459-5632 or email
