Hair Cuttery launches ‘Share a Haircut’

Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, expects to donate up to 100,000 back-to-school haircut certificates – a total of $1.6 million – in this year’s Share-a-Haircut program.

This is the 14th year of the program. Since the program’s launch in 1999, Hair Cuttery has donated more than 700,000 free haircut certificates to kids in need.

“Share-a-Haircut is about the ritual of preparing for a new school year,” Dennis Ratner, founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery, said in a news release. “A new haircut symbolizes a new start and new possibilities. We want kids to associate feeling good about themselves with getting ready for back to school.”

New this year, haircuts can be donated via a blog widget. Follow the conversation on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #shareahaircut.

Hair Cuttery donates one free haircut certificate (up to 100,000) to a child in need for every child’s haircut (18 years and younger) purchased during the month of August. The free haircut vouchers are valid up to Nov. 15.
