theCut for Kids
Back to School Event
WHO: Children and kids going back to school. Ages 3 - 13 and their parent or guardian
WHAT: The second annual theCut for Kids Back-to-School Event will provide the opportunity for children across the country to receive free and discounted haircuts as they prepare for the upcoming school year. 16 million kids in the US attend school while their families struggle with extreme poverty. During this event, parents and students will be able to book haircuts with participating barbers on theCut. All barbers with “🎒📚🚌” near their name will be offering discounted haircuts during the event. Our goal is to help give kids the confidence they deserve by having them looking their best as they head back to school while providing relief to those parents who need it most.
WHEN: August 12 - 23, 11:59 PM PST
WHERE: Nationwide via theCut
WHY: Our children are our future and we need them ALL to believe that they can achieve all they can dream of as students. We believe that for one to be their best, they must feel their best. Everyone knows the power of a great haircut.

Undaunted. Outspoken. Trailblazers. Trendsetters. Khane Kutzwell, Kiah Lyles, Oyinlola Isiaka, and Onyinye Obasi are just some of the women in barbering who are blazing trails as barbers and busting down toxic ideologies that have had a hold on barbering for entirely too long.
