Hair Cuttery, a family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in Vienna, will be donating back-to-school haircuts to children in need this August.
From August 1-15, for every child up to age 18 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery’s almost 900 salons, one free haircut certificate will be donated to an underprivileged child in that same community.
“Share-A-Haircut allows us to give back in a way that is simple, but meaningful,” said Dennis Ratner, founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “On the first day of school everyone deserves to look and feel their best, and our stylists love nothing more than being able to give children in their community a much deserved boost of confidence.”
This being the 16th anniversary of the program, Hair Cuttery aims to donate tens of thousands of free haircut certificates. Certificates are distributed with the help of more than 100 local government and non-profit organizations that are closely tied to each community.
Hair Cuttery has a 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, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and Girls on the Run.
Hair Cuttery is a division of Ratner Companies, based in Vienna, VA.
