Video Shows the Beauty of Giving: Haircuts for the Homeless

Giving is the "reason for the season," and these caring women of the sheers understand that completely. 

Event organizer Mandie Barnes is a hairstylist at an upscale Utah salon who decided it was time for her and her fellow stylists to give back to the community in the best way they knew how: by making people feel good on the outside in hopes that they may start to feel better on the inside. 

So Barnes gathered her cosmetologists and headed down to the Ogden Rescue Mission last Saturday to spread some kindness and good cheer. The event inspired many local businesses including Chick Fil-A, Texas Roadhouse, and Ogden Beauty Supply to donate food, hats, mittens, and other products all for the purpose of blessing those less fortunate during the holidays.

One very thankful gentleman remarked, "As a homeless person, it's kind of nice to have a lady mess with my hair and make it look cool. It makes me feel human again. It's awesome. Brings a little tear to my eye almost."

Mandie may not know it, but she's following in the footsteps of 82 year-old "Joe The Barber" of Hartford, Connecticut, a retired real estate investor who's been cutting homeless people's hair in the park for 25 years for the price of a hug...

 

 

The only thing those clippers are better at cutting is onions.
