Hair Cuttery to donate haircuts

Published 9:22 pm Thursday, January 23, 2014

For every adult or child who visits any Suffolk area Hair Cuttery salon to purchase a haircut on Feb. 4 and 5, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a homeless person in the community through local organizations such as the United Way and Salvation Army.

Hair Cuttery salons nationwide have participated in the annual August Share-A-Haircut program, which donates haircuts to disadvantaged children 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 chief executive officer 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.”

In partnership with government and non-profit social service organizations near each salon location, vouchers are distributed to adults to obtain a free haircut this winter. Last year, 100,000 free haircut certificates were donated through Share-A-Haircut at nearly 900 Hair Cuttery salon locations nationwide.
