Share-A-Haircut Supports Underprivileged Children
The Hair Cuttery chain will be donating back-to-school haircuts to children who need it the most this summer. Through Aug. 15, for every child up to age 18 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery’s nearly 900 salons, one free haircut certificate will be donated to an underprivileged child in the community.
Hair Cuttery is aiming to donate tens of thousands of free haircut certificates ahead of the new school year. Certificates will be
distributed with the help of more than 200 local government and non-profit organizations in communities across the country. The goal is for these children to associate feeling good about themselves with getting ready to head back to school.
The Kentlands Square Hair Cuttery is located at 257 Kentlands Boulevard.
