Hair salons across NH donating free cuts to the homeless


NASHUA - Hair Cuttery salons in New England are matching each haircut they give with vouchers homeless shelters can give to those who are in need.

"It's just a good feeling," stylist Sonya Ouellet said.

There are several New Hampshire locations taking part in the event, including Nashua, Concord and Seabrook.

Each location is teaming up with a local shelter, who will distribute the vouchers as needed.

Last year, Hair Cuttery donated more than 600 vouchers to the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter.

"When you feel good about yourself you're able to do more positive things," said Community Outreach Manager Carol Weeks. "For homeless folks hopefully that would include finding a job if you don’t have one, and approaching people about finding a place to live."

According to Hair Cuttery, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 1.26 million free haircut certificates since 1999. The cut are valued at nearly $25.2 million.

The haircut drive lasts through Tuesday.
