Proprieter Hal Floyd stated the business offered this service because, “I know what it’s like to go back to school without being able to afford a haircut.” Floyd added he hopes the haircuts build self-confidence in the students.
The business teamed with WGAA to donate the clippings from the cuts to Matter of Trust, an organization that uses donated hair to build hair booms for cleaning up oil spills. The hair collected at FHF Design will be used to collect oil in the Gulf of Mexico, Floyd said.
In addition to the haircuts, the children also received school supplies provided by FHF Design, as well snacks provided by various businesses to munch on while waiting to get a haircut.
“We want to stress to everyone how important it is to support your local community, and how giving to young minds helps them grow into strong minds,” Floyd said.
