Giving to those in need can be as simple as sitting down for a "little off the top."
On Feb. 4–5, Hair Cuttery in Lemont will match each purchased haircut, with a certificate for a free haircut for a homeless person in their community.
Hair Cuttery will work withlocal organizations such as the United Way and Salvation Army to fulfill their mission.
The idea is a spinoff of August's "Share-a-Haircut" where for every child’s haircut purchased, one in turn is donated to a disadvantaged child in the community, just in time for back-to-school.
“Through our Share-A-Haircut program, more than 725,000 free haircut certificates have been donated to children in need over the years,” said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “We’re evolving this program so adults in the community who are in need of a fresh look for a job interview or simply for added self-confidence as they get back on their feet can benefit as well.”
Last year, 100,000 free haircut certificates were donated through Share-A-Haircut at nearly 900 Hair Cuttery salon locations nationwide.
