The haircuts are donated to children in need through partnerships with local non-profit agencies. In DC, they're working with FACETS, Tahirih Justice Center, and the Arlington County & Alexandria Depts of Human Services, to name a few. Last year, Hair Cuttery donated more than 9,600 haircuts to children in need in the DC/NOVA metro area, and more than 625,000 haircuts since the program started in 1999.
Although not yet school age, I took my son in for a hair cut over the weekend. This is such an easy way to give back to our community! If you're heading out for a hair cut, do it with purpose!
