WINNIPEG — Getting a haircut is an act many people take for granted – a monthly ritual to look your best or try out a latest style. For the city’s homeless and less fortunate, a haircut becomes a luxury they may not be able to afford.
For Brenda Lee Reimer and a dozen hair stylists from Winnipeg, Morden, Winkler and Steinbach, providing haircuts is their way to give back to the community.
They’ve teamed up with Lighthouse Mission in Winnipeg to offer free haircuts to the homeless on Sunday. No questions asked – anyone who stops in, will be treated to a haircut.
Reimer said she did a similar event over a year. After helping with a backpack fundraiser for Lighthouse Mission, Reimer said she found a sink in the back and envisioned creating the same event; this time, at a bigger location.
All the hairstylists are professionals who are volunteering their time to give back.
