Free haircuts for kids in August

Harried parents looking to get kids ready for back-to-school with too little time and too little money will be glad to learn of Remington College’s “Cuts for Kids” event.

Throughout the month of August, Remington College cosmetology programs will provide free haircuts to kids ages 17 and under.

Appointments can be scheduled Friday, Aug. 1 through Saturday, Aug. 30 at the 6302 E. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Suite 400, location in Tampa by calling (813)316-4470.

Walk-ins are also welcome during the salon hours of Monday - Thursday 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Friday 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Parents and others can also score free salon services during the promotion period, too.

Anyone who brings in a donation of school supplies (composition books, notebook paper, pencils, etc.) can get their choice of a free haircut, manicure or pedicure.

Salon services are performed by students enrolled in the program, supervised by instructors.

All donated school supplies collected will be distributed to local schools.
