Haircuts donated to children in need

Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, marks its 15th year of helping children in need start the new school year with a fresh haircut.

The company has a goal of donating 125,000 haircut certificates in the month of August through its Share-a-Haircut program. For every haircut purchased for a child younger than 18 at one of Hair Cuttery's almost 900 salons in August, Hair Cuttery will donate one haircut to an underprivileged child in the communities where Hair Cuttery operates.

“We are extremely proud to offer the Share-a-Haircut program to children who need it in our local Hair Cuttery communities,” said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “We want children not only to learn the power of giving but also to go back to school with confidence. Something as simple as a new haircut can help inspire both.”

To date, the Share-a-Haircut program has reached more than 800,000 children with haircut certificate donations valued at $12 million. This being a milestone year, the company hopes to bring that number to 925,000.

Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving, supporting 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, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Girls on the Run.
