Barbers at the business remind everyone of the importance of not only giving back to the community but helping uplift their spirits and helping students look and feel great when they return to school Monday.

“It’s about these kids going back to school you know feeling like somebody, looking like somebody, when you look better, you feel better and you perform better,” one barber said.
