Hair stylist Mandi Barnes of Essensual Hair Design in Ogden, Utah, got an idea after watching a YouTube video about a hairdresser giving free haircuts to homeless people in New York City.

She reached out to other hairdressers in the area and hosted a “free haircut day” at the Ogden Rescue Mission homeless shelter.

On Saturday, they volunteered their time and talents giving haircuts (and confidence) to the people who need it the most.


Many local businesses made donations, including meals from Chic-fil-A and Texas Roadhouse.

The results of the afternoon were incredible.
