Childrens Haircut's Benefit Local Schools

I like the idea that just by doing something we do anyway, like getting a haircut, provides support for Emma’s school”, says mom Kristi Sherwin.

“It is a core principle of Pigtails & Crewcuts and its franchise owners to be very involved with their communities and support them in anyway possible,” said Wade Brannon, president of Pigtails & Crewcuts. “Education is an area we know is so critical and always in need of support, so we were very excited to launch this program and not only give funding directly to our local schools, but also be able to Give Back in a meaningful way to our loyal patrons as well.”

“I like the idea that just by doing something we do anyway, like getting a haircut, provides support for Emma’s school”, says mom Kristi Sherwin. “I also like the idea that it’s something everyone in the community can be a part of and feel good about.”

Getting your school into the action is easy. Children should bring their parents into their local Pigtails & Crewcuts and ask the staff if their school is signed-up. If they have not yet signed-up, the store will contact the child’s school and get them on the list.

“The response we have gotten from the community has been amazing” states Kendra Keating, San Diego’s Pigtails & Crewcuts owner. “The Moms and the kids get very excited about it and rally all the other parents and kids to come here for their child’s back to school haircut because they know 5% will benefit their school directly. It even gets competitive between schools which is fun. I think it’s very empowering for them.”

Finding new and better ways to support communities is at the top of the agenda whenever Pigtails & Crewcuts owners get together. “We feel strongly that every business within the local community has an obligation to be an active and supportive member, states Brannon, “It’s easy to talk about supporting the families and communities that are our customers, but here we strive every day to put real action behind those words. Giving Back is a program we plan to implement every fall with larger and greater success every year.”
