Let’s face it, affording a nice haircut on a college budget is infeasible. You either have to deal with long, straggly hair tipped with split ends or, guys, have to shamefully embrace the “man bun.” Thankfully, starting on March 2, 2017 and continuing on following Thursdays, students with a valid University ID can receive discounted prices at Vince & Gino’s Hair Salon and Spa in Bridgeport, IL. The discounted student prices include $15 wash and cut for men and $20 for women.
Vince & Gino’s Hair Design is a family owned salon that opened in 1960 by, owner, Vince Ballone himself. Located at 2845 S. Wallace in Bridgeport, IL, Vince & Gino’s is a full service salon and spa that includes services from hair care to waxing and massages.
The Roosevelt University Advertising Club will be promoting a campaign to build awareness of Vince & Gino’s upcoming Thursday student deals to neighboring universities of DePaul, Columbia, Robert Morris and IIT. RU’s Ad Club President, Matthew Spahr says that the “Ad Club is testing their skills by creating and executing this promotion, along with a campaign.”
Roosevelt University Advertising Club is a student run organization of driven students from the IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications) program. The club is active in creating campaigns for, both, Roosevelt University organizations along with local Chicago businesses that are looking to gain from an advertising campaign.
