Guam - Island residents got top-notch haircuts, with donations going to help the victims in Japan. The "Cuts for A Cause" event was held at the Guam Premier Outlets today where First Lady Christine Calvo is led the efforts.

"I was tasked with the government-wide relief effort for Japan," Calvo told KUAM News, "and one morning I was having my hair done and having a meeting on the phone and Marcy had heard all the things I was trying to put together and I got off the phone, she continued to fix my hair, and she said, 'You know, I think we can do something.'"

Cosmetologist from In-Style Hair Salon Marcy Tiong gathered all her friends in the industry to help with this very worthy cause. "I made phone calls to all my friends at oceans, from couture, my salon. I just called them. There's also from Signature and Sunny's Beauty Salon. And I think we have from Essence. I just called them up, told them about the effort and how the First Lady wants to raise money and they were so willing," she said.

Funds for the relief effort will be handed over to the American Red Cross.
