Published 9:38 pm Thursday, January 14, 2016

Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, will offer free haircuts for the homeless in a program scheduled for Feb. 1 and 2.

For every haircut purchased those days, a free haircut certificate will be donated back to a homeless person in the community of one of Hair Cuttery’s nearly 900 salons.

To distribute the certificates to those in need, Hair Cuttery is partnering with local shelters and community organizations. The company hopes to reach thousands of homeless people in the neighborhoods it serves. 
“Our February program for the homeless is very special for our stylists and the entire Hair Cuttery family,” said Dennis Ratner, founder and chief executive officer of Hair Cuttery.

“It’s incredibly powerful to see how one haircut can make an impactful difference in the lives of those less fortunate. It is truly heartwarming to be able to give such joy and confidence.”

Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 1.26 million free haircut certificates valued at nearly $25.2 million.

Hair Cuttery supports a range of local and national causes, including St. Baldrick’s Foundation, American Red Cross, The National Network to End Domestic Violence, American Cancer Society and Girls on the Run.
