Haircuts are part and parcel of any parent’s routine as they prepare their children for the first day of school.
For every child who has their hair trimmed at the Hair Cuttery, one free cut certificate will be donated to a child in need. The 18th annual Share-A-Haircut program is being held from Aug. 1 to 15 for youth younger than 18.
“It is important for every child to begin the new school year with a sense of confidence and excitement,” said Dennis Ratner, founder and chief executive officer of Hair Cuttery, in a news release.
Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 2.16 million certificates valued at nearly $35 million.
The Hair Cuttery held a similar campaign this past spring when it donated more than 81,000 haircuts to survivors of domestic violence.
