DoSomething Day 2018: Homeless receive high-end salon haircuts for free.
HAIR stylists who normally charge up to $250 for a haircut gave their time for free on #DoSomething Day today cutting hair for the homeless.
DoSomething Day founder Jon Dee — who was on hand at the Sydney event at the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre on King St — said just a few hours of the stylists’ time could make the world of difference for someone who is homeless or disadvantaged.
“It’s given people a sense of pride in their appearance again; it gives them a fresh start. All of us feel good when we’ve had a fresh haircut.”
“When you are living on the street or having a really tough time you don’t feel good about yourself. We are trying to change their outlook, help them get back on their feet and give them a fresh spring in their step.”
