Classique Hair Salon and Beauty will give its profits made onWednesday to the North West Queensland Mental Health Network. That was $1829.Owner Owen Macnamara said the salon would chose a different charity to donate aday’s profits to each month, and“not the big sexy ones” either.

“I’m not really losing out because it’s the money people choose to spend on that day,” he said.

He chose the mental health network first because it was supported by Queen Quest contestant Renaee Gattera, whose quest is backed by the salon.

The monthly charity day event begins after the salon expanded into a bigger building in February next to the original location in Rodeo Drive.Mr Macnamara said he could afford to examine the“bottom line” to support the community and he encouraged other businesses to do the same.
