The Paul Mitchell School in Costa Mesa was awash in a sea of red Friday.
Red balloons, flowers, clothing and hair were symbolic of public support for the American Heart Assn.’s National Wear Red Day.
Clients dyeing and spraying their hair red, or sporting bright red polish on their fingernails, included heart attack and stroke survivors, and family members participating in memory of someone they had lost to heart disease.
St. Joseph’s Hospital representatives provided free health screenings and raised public awareness about the risk factors involved with heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in America.
