Haircuts with Heart


Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

We are a new 501c3  non profit start up that provides beauty services, lunch, gift bags of shampoo and conditioner, and community for those in need. We believe that helping others begin to discover their identity again is a simple, yet powerful act. Although we can't give our guests a home,  a haircut goes a long way in helping people feel good, and cared about.

We partner with our community of professional hairstylists, barbers, makeup artists, nail technicians and personal care providers. 

We partner with local organizations that serve those in need, such as veterans, homeless, exploited youth, and elders. 

We are two years in the running and have served over 170 low income and homeless  people.  We want to make a larger impact, and offer more events. the need is there, we just need the funds to continue.

Thank you for considering  a donation, however large or small, or any amount you can.

"Haircuts with Heart came to MISSEY, a bay area nonprofit organization serving commercially sexually exploited children, to a day of pampering.  They brought with them, hair and makeup and styled a group of over 10 yound survivors. The group has such great attention to detail, getting each girl exactly the look that they wanted.  It was a beautfiul experience for all the young women involved, many of who would not have the opportunity to have their hair and makeup don otherwise. One of the most powerful parts of the experience was the love and community that Haircuts with Heartbrought to MISSEY.  All the volunteers connected with the young womend to make sure they knew how incredible they were on an individual level and sisterhood was alive and well between the young women of MISSEY and Haircuts with Heart volunteers." -Jackie Bedsole, Director of Progrmas MISSEY, Inc.
