Haircuts from the heart

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A new school year means more expenses -- and that includes haircuts.

For elementary students attending Clare McPhee, Ellio, Everett, Prescott and Saratoga, they can receive a free haircut and a new book before school starts. The Powder Room Parlor and Indigo Bridge Books are donating their services for the first "Fresh Cuts & New Books" event.

The Powder Room Parlor Owner, Melissa Stone, says it's so important to give back to the community, especially since everyone has been supportive of her new salon.

From noon until 6pm, an adult can accompany a child for a new haircut. The student will receive a treat donated by the Kitchen Sink Cookie Company and a book to take home.
