Free Haircuts for First Responders

For every $50, a first responder gets a FREE HAIRCUT! (no amount is too small!)

Hello, my name is Shanna and I am the owner of Hairspray Salon in beautiful Hillcrest, San Diego. My salon is home to 10 separate small business owners and I am on the verge of not being able to continue.

Due to COVID-19, we have been closed since mid-March and I have waived my team's booth rental fees until we are able to open again; this could be months. Owning a salon has a lot of overhead costs (rent, utilities, insurance, etc.) and I need help!

I have applied for all of the assistance that I can, and because I technically do not have 'employees', I am not eligible for any small business government grants or assistance as of yet.

I am not one to ask for free money, so I decided to get a little creative and give our local hard working first responders a free haircut for every $50 that is donated. We have reached out to clients, friends and family who are local first responders and they gave us a growing list of coworkers who would like a free haircut. Our goal is $16,000 which means 320 free haircuts!

If you are able to help out I would appreciate it greatly and I’m sure the first responders will too; no amount is too small!

These are tough times so if you're not able to help out financially, please share this link on your social media channels. (Click the "Share" button)

***If you know a specific first responder that you’d like to apply your $50 donation to, email and I will make it happen.
