For those 18 and older, you can bring school supplies in exchange for a free haircut. Those supplies will go to students at Reginald Chavez Elementary School. “We’re doing first come, first served. We’re doing a shampoo, we’re cutting and we’re doing a style. So we would like to give them the all full-on treatment that anyone that comes to our school would have,” said Roxanne Fernandez, director of the Aveda Institute.
Appointments are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If you missed out today, they will be offering the deal again on Thursday.
