VIENNA, Va., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Even after the spirit of the holiday season has passed, Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, continues to give back. Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 1.26 million free haircut certificates valued at nearly $25.2 million. The program continues in 2016, beginning with haircuts for the homeless on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 1-2.
For every haircut purchased on Feb. 1-2, a free haircut certificate will be donated back to a homeless person in the community of one of Hair Cuttery's nearly 900 salons. To distribute the certificates to those in need, Hair Cuttery is partnering with local shelters and community organizations. This February alone, Hair Cuttery hopes to reach thousands of homeless people in the neighborhoods it serves.
"Our February program for the homeless is very special for our stylists and the entire Hair Cuttery family," said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. "It's incredibly powerful to see how one haircut can make an impactful difference in the lives of those less fortunate. It is truly heartwarming to be able to give such joy and confidence."
Hair Cuttery has an established 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 and Girls on the Run.
