you might recall that around this time last year, i surrendered my tragically overgrown new-mom hair to the experts at hair cuttery and the results were fabulous! to say that the stylist brought me back to life (and back to being myself) is an understatement. i will never forget how kind he was at a time when i was feeling pretty fragile – after bouncing back from giving birth and adjusting to life with a demanding newborn.
so when hair cuttery reached out to me with details on their share-a-haircut campaign for veterans day, i jumped at the chance to share it with you. this time of year is precious to me because it marks our wedding anniversary (thanksgiving weekend) and it’s also the month during which i completed the fertility treatments that ultimately brought louisa into our lives. needless to say, i feel super thankful in november – especially for simple things like my family’s safety and my freedom.
in short, here’s the deal: for every adult haircut purchased at hair cuttery on wednesday, november 11th a free haircut certificate will be donated back to a veteran in need. to find deserving vets, hair cuttery is partnering with organizations local to the communities around hair cuttery’s almost 900 locations in hopes of reaching 25,000 veterans this year alone. so, so amazing!
my husband is a loyal hair cuttery customer (i actually won’t let him go anywhere else because too many stylists have botched his cuts!) so he has been preserving his hair for a veterans day chop in order to participate. i hope that you will consider taking part in this awesome campaign wherever you are, or share it with your social media following to help spread the word. our veterans deserve to feel like the superheroes that they are – and coming from someone who knows the confidence boost that accompanies a good haircut at the right time, i am a big fan of hair cuttery’s efforts.
happy veterans day!
my grandfather, dr. william joseph callahan, is in the photo above. he was a world war ii army veteran and he sure did he have one great head of hair.
