Remington College Columbia Campus offers free back-to-school haircuts for kids

10th annual Cuts for Kids provides complimentary haircuts for students 17 and younger throughout August

COLUMBIA, S.C. (July 10, 2018) - When the first bell rings for a new school year, kids everywhere will be excited to share their summer adventures or show off a new look.

Nonprofit Remington College is making that easy. Throughout the month of August, Remington College campuses across the country are providing free back-to-school haircuts for kids through the Cuts for Kids program.

The Cuts for Kids program is a win all around. It allows students 17 and younger to get a free haircut, helping them to look and feel their best on the first day, and helping parents save some money during the expensive back-to-school shopping season. In addition, the program allows students in Remington College's cosmetology program to get hands-on experience in real-world situations as part of their education. It is one of the many ways Remington College lives out its nonprofit mission and gives back to the community.

Remington College has provided more than 17,000 free back-to-school haircuts through the Cuts for Kids program, which is in its 10th year.
