Free haircuts for domestic-violence victims

Hair Cuttery and the National Network to End Domestic Violence are joining forces for Hair Cuttery’s latest version of its Share-A-Haircut program.

On Monday and Tuesday, for every haircut purchased at one of Hair Cuttery’s nearly 900 salons, including the one on College Drive in Suffolk, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a victim of domestic violence through NNEDV’s member programs.

“Our Share-A-Haircut program and the work of NNEDV are both incredibly impactful causes,” said Dennis Ratner, chief executive officer and founder of Hair Cuttery. “Together, we are aiming to spread awareness about the hardships and injustices of domestic violence, while pampering and comforting those affected.”

Through the partnership, Hair Cuttery and NNEDV will work closely to distribute thousands of free haircut certificates to individuals affected by domestic violence, including women, children and men.

“It is essential to be a voice for survivors who have been silenced by domestic violence,” said Kim Gandy, NNEDV president and chief executive officer. “We are thrilled that Hair Cuttery is rising against violence and standing with survivors.”

This is the 17th year of Share-A-Haircut, with the program already having donated more than 85,000 certificates to the homeless in February.
