BURTON (WJRT) -
(08/27/14) - With the start of school just around the corner, one local barber wanted give students the chance to begin the year with a great haircut - and offered them Wednesday at no charge.
Three Moe Cuts, a barber shop in Burton, spent all afternoon cutting kids hair - and it didn't cost them a dime.
Moes had movies playing and even fired up the grill, making the haircuts not just something that had to be done, but a fun event.
Parents said this gives them the chance to spend money on more school supplies, and the kids talked about how starting school with a new haircut boosts their confidence.
"Sometimes it's not about the money. Like I said earlier, it's about trying to give something back to the community and the kids so they can move on. And once they see people doing that, that'll give them something positive to go on, too," said owner Cory Moore.
Moore said he has no doubt this will become an annual event and he encourages other shops to participate as well.
