When it comes to giving back, Madison County is no stranger. One Saturday Oct. 22, some of Madison’s hair stylists will come together in the Shear Goodness event to do just that. These stylists will be offering a number of services, for free, in order to give back to the community.
Shannon Keel, owner of The Hair Parlor in Lee, helped organize the event. She along, with other stylists, including Julie Wood and Lynn Wilson, will be offering free haircuts. However, there is one stipulation, all hair must be clean in order to be cut. If it isn’t clean then people will be turned away.
They will also be offering make-up application, mini manicures, 10 minute massage chairs and there will even be a professional photographer available to take pictures of families or of a single person. There will also be snacks and drinks available as well as face painting for the kids.
The event will begin at 9 a.m. at Lee City hall and will last until 1 a.m. There will be a number system in place, so people will not be able to decide which hair stylist they get. It will simply be who is available when their number is called.
“We just wanted to do something to put a smile on people’s faces. I don’t care if you drive a Cadillac or you don’t have a car, everyone is welcome to come,” said Keel.
