Celebrity Hairstylists Show Support for Homeless at Pop-Up Event
A number of celebrity hairstylists came out to volunteer and show their support for the homeless at a pop-up event held by charity Haircuts4Homeless last week, including Leigh Keates and Richard Ashforth.
Marking British Beauty Week, charity Haircuts4Homeless held the pop-up haircutting event at The Electric Salon, hosted by Mark Wooley. Homeless people were offered first class haircuts free of charge, offering a well-earned boost in self-esteem. Full treatments offered including cutting their hair, massaging their heads and styling their hair.
Stewart Roberts, Haircuts4Homeless founder, commented: “It was an amazing event, bringing together the top of the hairdressing industry in the beautiful surroundings of Electric Space London. We had some great clients including Anne who I found starting to bed down on a nearby corner. I spoke to her for a while when she said it is her birthday this weekend so I walked her to the salon and Louis Byrne gave her a beautiful makeover. “
He continued: “Jack Eames was on hand to take some shots for the upcoming Haircuts4Homeless book. There were goodie bags from L’Oréal and Beauty Banks and full body wipes from Mammoth Wipes. It was so good to be part of British Beauty Week again, I’m grateful for everything they do.”
Louis Byrne, Celebrity Hairstylist, also commented: “Volunteering for Haircuts4Homeless played a part in my recovery when I was in a difficult space. Being able to offer my services and give something back is very important to me. We should all have the opportunity to experience the uplift a haircut brings – we are all human and deserve respect.”
