Free haircuts for local kids

By Katherine Garcia | 20 de agosto de 2012

San Antonio.-

Besides the usual backpacks, pencils and paper, nothing says back to school like a haircut.  

Going back to school will be a smoother experience for foster children under the care of Child Protective Services. With a complimentary haircut and styling at the CPS Back to School Hair-A-Thon earlier this week, the kids will be returning to classrooms in style and with confident smiles.

Two hundred children waited eagerly in line at the Aveda Hair institute. This is the second year the institute is hosting the CPS Back to School Hair-A-Thon. Everybody participated - almost all Aveda staff and students helped out while professional hair stylists worked hard to get the kids ready for school with great looking new haircuts.

“That’s all it is, is a few techniques,” said Derrick “Detail” Johnson, a professional barber at Elite Level Kutz.

Detail, who’s been cutting hair since the age of seven, gives a few pointers to Clarissa and Brianna. The students of the Aveda Institute watch Detail shave young Raul’s hair.

The learning experience is great for the kids and students alike. Kis also got tips about how to keep their hair looking great long after th haircut.

“We get taught something different from our schooling and we’re helping the community out,” Clarissa said.

“It’s a good learning experience,” Brianna added. “Being able to help children is a win-win.”

The kids certainly appreciate the haircuts. After her shampoo and styling, Shalaka felt ready to go back to school.

“At first I wasn’t, and then I got my confidence back,” she said.

Robert Jones, a representative from Beauty Plus said it feels great to see these kids happy and give them a positive attitude. Beauty Plus supplied the products for the event.

“I just think it’s my duty as a business owner to help out with the community,” Jones added.

Two hundred children under the care of Child Protective Services turned out for a haircut. Hard Rock Café and the San Antonio Food Bank provided breakfast and lunch for the children.

Besides freshly cut , great looking hair, the group also gave each child a raffle ticket with a chance to win terrific prizes  like  tickets to Seaworld, the  Main Event, Santikos Theaters and Pump it Up to top off a great day.
