Get a haircut, help an underprivileged child.
That's the back-to-school offer from salon chain Hair Cuttery.
For every child up to age 18 who gets a haircut from Aug. 1 to Aug. 15, the company will donate a free haircut certificate to a child in that same community.
"Share-A-Haircut allows us to give back in a way that is simple, but meaningful," said Dennis Ratner, Hair Cuttery CEO and founder, in the chain's announcement. "On the first day of school everyone deserves to look and feel their best."
It's the 16th year for the program. Hair Cuttery expects to donate tens of thousands of haircut certificates, with the help of local government and non-profit groups.
The chain has donated $16 million worth of certificates to more than 925,000 children.
