Business in brief

Hair Cuttery will be donating back-to-school haircuts to children who need it most this summer through its Share-A-Haircut program. From Aug. 1-15, for every child up to age 18 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery’s nearly 900 salons, the chain will donate one free haircut certificate to a disadvantaged child in the community. More than 61,000 free haircuts were donated last year. To find a location near you, visit http://www.haircuttery.com/locations.
