Haircuts4Homeless is a UK based charity set up by veteran hairdresser, Stewart Roberts. Inspired by the actions of hairdressers from all over the world who provide fresh haircuts to the homeless, Roberts was determined to foster a community of talented hairdressers to volunteer their time to provide haircuts to homeless people, free of charge.
Something as simple as a haircut can really boost your confidence and make you feel good about yourself. Haircuts4Homeless give exactly just that. They help boost the self esteem of homeless people, leaving them feeling more fresh and confident.
"There is something very personal about cutting someone’s hair that can be both enjoyable and therapeutic which is something that many homeless people rarely get."
We have donated 120 cartons of water to Haircuts4Homeless for them to distribute to their customers. A big thank you to Stewart and his team for letting us witness a few haircuts in action, it was extremely humbling to see their talented skills being used for a selfless act of kindness.
