Hair Cuttery Salon In Oak Forest to Provide Free Haircuts for the Homeless

For every adult or child who visits the Oak Forest Hair Cuttery salon at Rose Plaza @ Oak Forest to purchase a haircut on February 4-5, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a homeless person right in their community through local organizations such as the United Way and Salvation Army.  


Hair Cuttery salons nationwide have participated in the annual August Share-A-Haircut program, where for every child’s haircut purchased, one in turn is donated to a disadvantaged child in the community, just in time for back-to-school. Hair Cuttery is now adding another way to give with next month’s Share-A-Haircut for the homeless.
“Through our Share-A-Haircut program, more than 725,000 free haircut certificates have been donated to children in need over the years,” said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “We’re evolving this program so adults in the community who are in need of a fresh look for a job interview or simply for added self-confidence as they get back on their feet can benefit as well.”


In partnership with government and non-profit social service organizations near each salon location, vouchers are distributed to adults to obtain a free haircut this winter. Last year, 100,000 free haircut certificates were donated through Share-A-Haircut at nearly 900 Hair Cuttery salon locations nationwide, a result of excellent participation from Hair Cuttery communities.


Hair Cuttery is proud of its 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.

Rose plaza?

There's a Rose Plaza in Midlothian, but it doesn't even have a Hair Cuttery. Obviously a misprint.

Wow, how long have you guys lived in town? Pretty sure it has always been called rose plaza, I know it was as far back to when Blockbuster was open for business. Maybe even as far back, when there was a Papa Johns in the parcel closest to McDonalds. See the sign for yourself on Google Street View; http://goo.gl/maps/oJLkx

To Brian: This is what happens when you get old.
