BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Stylists from Privato Salon and Spa will be getting kids ready for school Monday, by giving out haircuts to kids in need at the A. Miriam Jamison Children's Center.
"When you have a good haircut, it gives you the confidence to start off the school year with a bang," said Privato's owner Lisa Verdugo.
The haircuts will be given today at the center from 1-4pm, for kids of all ages, from kindergarten up to 18 years old.
The Jamison Center is a 24-hour emergency shelter for neglected, abused and abandoned children, and provides educational services.
You can still donate new school supplies for kids at the center this week by dropping them off at Privato Salon & Spa, at 9500 Brimhall Road.
