Although many topics in life are up for discussion, one thing is unanimously true– we can’t ever do too much to show our appreciation for those who’ve dedicated their lives to serving our country. With Veteran’s Day around the corner, I’m so excited to highlight Hair Cuttery’s Share-A-Haircut program! The Share-A-Haircut program was created by Hair Cuttery, aka the largest family owned and operated chain of salons in the country, to give free haircuts to underprivileged community members, specifically kids in need as they head back to school. Since then, they’ve expanded this wonderful program to touch people of all ages. In its 16th year, Hair Cuttery’s program has reached more than one million children in need and more than 230,000 homeless adults, veterans, and victims of domestic violence.
This month, Hair Cuttery hopes to reach thousands– 25,000 to be exact– more on Veteran’s Day. The statistics are gut-wrenching; 1 in 5 homeless Americans is a veteran, and approximately 67,500 veterans are homeless on any given night. For every adult hair cut purchased on Wednesday, November 11th, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a veteran in need. So for all of you split end enablers, the 11th is the perfect day to get your fall trim while simultaneously giving the gift of a much-needed new ‘do to a deserving veteran. If you don’t know where your closest Hair Cuttery is, use their handy store locator to find the salon nearest to you.
I hope y’all will join me in supporting the Share-A-Haircut initiative this year… and in the years to come. You can keep up with Hair Cuttery and their fabulous community initiatives, including eligible dates for participation in their Back to School haircut program, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

And last but certainly not least, in the most sincerest way possible, I want to say thank you to all those who currently serve and have served our amazing country. As Patrick Henry once said, “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” We are truly blessed for your service, and we are blessed to live in the United States of America. God bless!
