Share A Haircut

What a wonderful idea!


For every children's haircut purchased August 1-15, a haircut certificate will be donated to a child in need, just in time for the new school year!

 

Perhaps your salon could do something similar?

 

Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, will be donating back-to-school haircuts to children who need it most this summer. From August 1-15, 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.

"A fresh haircut to celebrate a milestone is something that can easily be taken for granted," said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. "Through our Share-A-Haircut program, we strive to provide every child with this simple but impactful service that will help send them back to school with confidence and enthusiasm to kick-off the year."  

Within the first two weeks of August, 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.

Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 2.4 million free haircut certificates valued at nearly $50 million.
