September is a bittersweet time for me: not only do I send my kids off to school, but I also send myself off to work. I bid farewell to my short-lived months as a SAHM and head back to the classroom, where a fresh batch of students awaits me. At the end of every summer, steeped in everything us moms do to manage our families, I wonder, with much anxiety: How am I going to do all this AND work 40 plus hours per week? And then I gently remind myself, I've been at this for the past 10 years. I. Can. Do. It.
The smell of fresh crayons still sends me in a tizzy and I adore shopping for school supplies for my kids and my classroom. September is when I draw up my goals for the year, when I revamp my wardrobe, when I clear the clutter in my life - September is my "new year." And a new year calls for a new haircut, too. For both myself and my kids.
Here's a wonderful program that will not only get you and the kids those brand new haircuts to start the school year off in style but also give back to your community: The Hair Cuttery Share-A-Haircut program.
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.
The Share-a-Haircut program was created by Hair Cuttery to give free haircuts to underprivileged community members, specifically kids in need as they head back-to-school. Since then, they’ve expanded the program to touch people of all ages. This being the 16th anniversary of the program, Hair Cuttery is determined to donate tens of thousands of free haircut certificates. To date, the Share-A-Haircut program has reached more than 925,000 children with haircut certificate donations, valued at $16.65 million. In each market, 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 hopes to reach tens of thousands of children this year!
I rely on my local Hair Cuttery for trims for the kids as well as myself. I also like to indulge in a Hair Cuttery conditioning treatment and blowout every once in awhile. I especially appreciate the Hair Cuttery Style Express package, which gives you a shampoo, Redken Customized treatment, cut and blowdry at a super affordable price. Hair Cuttery is the largest family owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, and as a full-service, value-priced salon, Hair Cuttery offers a full complement of cuts and styling, coloring, waxing and texturizing services with no appointment necessary, as well as a full line of professional hair care products.
