FARGO, ND (KVRR) – Class is just around the corner and what better way to impress your friends and teachers than a haircut?
The Salvation Army has teamed up with Josef’s School of Hair, Skin and Body for 12th year and is offering free haircuts as part of their Cuts For Kids program.
It was a kind of wellness day, where the children could wash their hair, paint their faces and put on temporary tattoos.
Josef’s employees want the children to not only remember pens, paper and folders that children need to go back to school.
“Haircuts are sometimes last, but sometimes also the most important, so that we feel good,” says Josef’s headmistress Alisha Schaeffer.
“We just love working with Josef. Their students are phenomenal, their teachers, their directors. Everyone is great, ”said Kristi Simmons, Fargo Salvation Army volunteer coordinator and outreach.
The Salvation Army plans to team up with Joseph again sometime this fall for free adult haircuts.
