Scissors for Cuba

Scissors For Cuba was created by American Hairdresser Dayna Cakebread, after meeting Papito and Artecorte in 2015. Dayna decided to share this historic and monumental moment with all hairdressers and barbers. #MakeScissorHistory #scissorsforcuba

Since January 2016 she’s been dedicated to hand delivering scissors 3 times a year and campaigning across the United States and International beauty industry to bring Artecorte’s Scissor Monument the attention and support by our beauty industry worldwide.

On of the hardest parts to get the old, broken hairdressing scissors to Havana is hand delivery. The postal system isn’t set up to Cuba from the US plus sending sharp instruments is challenging to get through from other countries. The only way is hand delivery. So send them to Scissors For Cuba or come to Artecorte. 1500 pairs is Artecorte’s goal.
