Get A Haircut To Share A Haircut

Thanks to Hair Cuttery for sponsoring this post.

There are a few things our family typically does in preparation for the first day of school each year. The first thing we do is buy all of the supplies on the school supply list along with a backpack of each child’s choosing, I also shop for the perfect new outfits for the boys to wear on the first day of school. One of the last things we do to get ready for school is head to the salon to get much-needed haircuts for each child. My boys get their haircuts in May and typically then go the whole summer without a haircut so by Mid-August they are long overdue for a trim.

If your kids are going to need haircuts before school like mine do, I’d encourage you to visit your local Hair Cuttery in the next couple weeks to participate in their Share-A-Haircut program. I love companies that give back so I’m proud to support Hair Cuttery and this program that gives free haircuts to underprivileged community members, specifically kids in need as they head back-to-school. To date, the Share-A-Haircut program has reached more than 2.16M people with haircut certificate donations, valued at $35 million. Isn’t that amazing!?

This year Hair Cuttery is offering this program for the 18th year in a row and hoping to donate tens of thousands of free haircut certificates. To do so, they need YOUR help! From August 1st-15th, take your child or teenager to get a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery’s almost 900 salons. For each child that gets their haircut during this timeframe, one free haircut certificate will be donated to a local government or non-profit organization who will then offer it to an underprivileged child in that same community. It’s such an easy way to do something good and it will help a child feel more confident as they head back to school.

Not sure where your closest Hair Cuttery location is? You can use their salon locator here. Have your children gotten their BTS haircuts yet?

Share A Haircut Program {Easy Way To Give!}

I absolutely love sharing about ways people can give to others inexpensively so I had to share about what Hair Cuttery is doing. Now through August 15th they have the Share A Haircut program and are giving haircuts to children in need.

There are two easy ways that you can help. The first is, you can go to Hair Cuttery’s Facebook page and share about the program on Facebook or Twitter. It takes about a minute and by doing so you have donated a haircut to a child in need. The other way to participate is to take your children to get their back-to-school haircuts at a Hair Cuttery location by you. For every kid’s haircut given at one of their salons they will give a free haircut to a local child in need.

Hair Cuttery has donated more than 625,000 haircuts since they started the program in 1999. This year they expect to donate 75,000 haircuts. Wow! Amazing what they are doing to give back to the community. I urge you all to stop by your local Hair Cuttery for all your children’s haircuts and to head on over to their Facebook page right now and share about this program so a child in need can get a free haircut.

(Disclosure: I received a gift card to take my children to Hair Cuttery but all thoughts are my own.)

Luke’s First Haircut

Lucas was born needing a haircut. Seriously. We waited until he was 5 days shy of his 8 month “birthday” before caving in and taking him. The “SHE’s so cute” comments at the grocery store when HE was dressed from head to toe in blue had to end.

We took Lucas to Kid Snips and I took a lot of pictures to remember the experience. Here are a few of my favorites:

Look at that mop head :)

He spent most of the time eating his smock

Mommy, what are they doing to me?

Putting the final touches on it

I couldn’t believe how much a haircut could change him so much. He looks so grown-up!
