What We Do

Haircuts from the Heart provides haircuts for people who are homeless, elderly, disabled, or poor.

Our services boost the self-esteem and dignity of participants, allow children to fit in at school, and give adults a “job ready” appearance. 

In 2019, we were able to provide over 3,500 haircuts!

Our program offers access to affordable hair care  to those who might not otherwise be able to access this basic service.

We do this through a mini-salon in the Mary Magdalen House in the St. Anthony Center in Over-The-Rhine, a mobile salon, and a student voucher program.

Ways to Get Involved

Haircuts from the Heart

We are always looking to add partner salons and stylists to our Student Voucher Program.  We regularly identify potential new mobile sites. 

We welcome Ohio-licensed, volunteer stylists to assist in the mini-salon.

For Cincinnatians experiencing homelessness, a haircut is about more than looks.
