I don't know about you, but when I get a fresh haircut, I feel like a new person! I have a pep in my step, my confidence is boosted, and my mood in general is so much better!
We provide free haircuts to anyone who would like one in the Buffalo, NY area! Everyone feels great after a fresh cut and we want to help people look and feel their best! When you feel good, there is no stopping what you can do!
We want to build confidence and spread love to one another. We are all human, and everyone needs a little help from time to time.
In order for us to help others, we need help from you! We solely rely on volunteers and donations to do what we do!
Haircuts For Those In Need started in 2018 when founder Charlene Minx decided to use her God gifted talents to give back doing what she does best, cutting hair through charity work! Char and her husband Taylor decided to team up with Buffalo's Good Neighbors and give out free haircuts at the same time they were giving out food to homeless people and others in need. Local hairstylists and barbers come together to make this all possible! We cut hair on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month outdoors at Fireman's Park in downtown Buffalo, NY from May - September at 10:30am.
Come late fall, we needed to move our operation to an indoor space. Friends of Night People welcomed us in and we now cut hair during their dinner service from October - April at 5:00pm on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month.
Our amazing group of volunteers consists of local cosmetologists, barbers, and assistants! We not only make people look good, we build their confidence and make them feel good too!
If this sounds like something you would be interested in please contact us for more information! We are always in need of licensed cosmetologists and barbers to donate their time giving free haircuts to those who cannot afford one in our Buffalo, NY community.
Not a hairstylist or barber? That's OK! You can serve as an assistant by sweeping hair, disinfecting tools, and chatting with our guests!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
