Great Clips Reston Supports Cancer Patients & Hair Donors with Free Haircuts, Dec 12 – 14, 2022

Reston, VA, (December 01, 2022) – The newest Great Clips salon in northern Virginia is dedicating three days in December to highlight cancer awareness during the holiday season and provide meaningful support to cancer patients. Monday, Dec 12 – Wednesday, December 14, Great Clips at South Lakes Village Center in Reston, VA will provide free haircuts to cancer patients and to those donating their hair for children’s wigs. The three-day campaign focuses on two critical outreach programs that Great Clips offers throughout the U.S. and Canada: the Clips of Kindness and Wigs for Kids programs.

The recently opened salon at 11130 South Lakes Drive in Reston is open seven days a week from 9 am to 7 pm on Monday through Saturday, and 9 am to 6 pm on Sunday. Families can “walk right in” or they can use Great Clips Online Check-in from the comfort of their home or work. Great Clips offers haircuts, shampoos, and styling.

“This holiday season, we want to continue to do our part to help those in need,” said Sean Carroll, Great Clips franchisee and military veteran. “We know these two programs make a real difference in the lives of others, especially those experiencing cancer.”

Clips of Kindness is a Great Clips program offering complimentary clipper cuts to customers facing hair loss due to cancer treatments. Customers who would like to receive free clipper cuts can contact the salon at (571) 490-3649 or email at sean.carroll@greatclips.net about making arrangements.

Wigs for Kids is a nonprofit hair donation organization that helps children and young adults dealing with hair loss by making high-quality hair pieces from donated hair. The wigs created by Wigs for Kids are designed specifically to withstand vigorous activities that kids participate in every day. You can help a child look and feel their best by getting your hair cut for free at Great Clips and then donating your hair to Wigs for Kids. The stylist who cuts your hair will give you the information needed to make this as easy as possible. For details about minimum hair length and other donation requirements, visit wigsforkids.org.
