Hair Cuttery Back to School Haircuts for Good: #ShareAHaircut


Getting ready for back to school in our house always means shopping for springy tennis shoes, sharpening a bushel of new non-chewed-on pencils, and heading out for fresh haircuts. New tees, jeans and school folders are nice, sure. But as long as you have comfy new shoes, bright yellow pencils and a reflection in the mirror that makes you smile, you’re ready to face a brand new grade.

We all may know of a few local and national back to school programs that connect kids in need with necessary school supplies (such as Montgomery County Public Schools’ Give Back Packs and #StaplesforStudents). But did you know that simply by taking our own kids’ for back to school hair cuts at Hair Cuttery, underprivileged kids in our local communities receive free haircuts, too?

Hair Cuttery’s Back to School Share-A-Haircut is a win-win for all families. From August 1-15, for every child up to age 18 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery’s salons, one free haircut certificate will be donated to a local child in need. Over the past 16 years of the program, Hair Cuttery has donated 1.89 million free haircut certificates to kids who can use a hand preparing for the new school year.

And with our help, this summer Hair Cuttery is aiming to donate tens of thousands of more free haircuts to local kids!

My family and I are big Hair Cuttery fans. The stylists do a fabulous job with both boys and girls, and are often amazing with very young kids (Alice has been loving Hair Cuttery since age 2). The prices are always barbershop low but the experience feels like a salon. Charlie, Eve and Alice love having a shampoo and head massage for no extra charge, and the girls love how the stylists will curl, braid or specially style their hair after even the most standard trim. Charlie learned about cool guy hair wax from his favorite Hair Cuttery stylist. And since I’m usually burning the candle at both ends and rushing around, it rocks that walk-ins are always welcome.

Find your closest Hair Cuttery location and be sure to bring your kids in for their annual back to school cuts between August 1 and 15 for an easy way to help others, and no extra cost to your family budget. Then be sure to proudly share your kids’ spiffy style pics on social media using the hashtag #ShareAHaircut.
