ROCHESTER, N.Y. — October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

People’s Choice Kitchen teamed up with three local salons, including textures Beauty Bar on Lyell Avenue, to pamper local women who have survived domestic abuse.

About 30 women got new haircuts and styles on Monday, as well as roses from the Gates and Rochester Police Departments.

“We’re here to pamper all these well-deserved women, let them know they’re loved and we appreciate them and that we have their backs and we’re all sisters. We all have a story,” said Evangela Stanley, owner of People’s Choice Kitchen.

This event has been held on and off over the last 10 years during Domestic Violence Awareness month.
