VIENNA, Va., July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, will be donating back-to-school haircuts to children who need it most this summer. From August 1-15, for every child up to age 18 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery's nearly 900 salons, one free haircut certificate will be donated to a disadvantaged child in the community.
"A new haircut for a special occasion is something we all take for granted," said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. "Our Share-A-Haircut program ensures that children in our communities aren't deprived of that simple, but essential, service. If we can send those students back to school with added confidence and a smile on their faces, then we've done our job."
This summer, Hair Cuttery is aiming to donate tens of thousands of free haircut certificates ahead of the new school year. Certificates will be distributed with the help of more than 100 local government and non-profit organizations in communities across the country.
Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 1.89 million free haircut certificates valued at nearly $30.35 million.
2016 marks the 17th year of Share-A-Haircut, with Hair Cuttery's most recent campaign donating 55,000 haircuts to victims of domestic violence this past spring. The company has an established history of charitable giving and has supported 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 and Girls on the Run.
