HAVERHILL — Hair Cuttery teamed up with The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), the leading voice for domestic violence victims and their advocates, for its spring Share-A-Haircut program, held May 5-6. Every time an adult received a haircut at any of the Hair Cuttery salons in New England, including the salon in Haverhill, a haircut was donated, through NNEDV, to a woman living in a domestic violence shelter in the local community. In its 15th year, Share-A-Haircut has benefited three-quarters of a million people. Originally, the program benefited children in need, but it has grown to help people of all ages. Earlier this year, 50,000 free haircut certificates, valued at $900,000, were donated to men, women and children across the U.S. in homeless situations. Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving through local and national causes, including (but not limited to) Dress for Success, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Buzzing 4 Change, The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Easter Seals, The Hero Campaign, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. For more information, visit haircuttery.com.
