Leeds community benefits from free haircuts

Posted: April 27, 2022

The Hair and Beauty Training Academy at Leeds City College’s Printworks Campus is a cut above the rest by offering free haircuts to members of the local community.

A group of hairdressing and barbering students are providing the service to those across the district who are homeless, job seeking, refugees, asylum seekers and members of mental health organisation, Andy’s Man Club.

Maxine Edwards, course leader within the School of Hair, Beauty and Media Makeup, said: “As a college based in the heart of Leeds, we are committed to serving the members of our community as much as possible. We appreciate that not everyone can afford a haircut, so we’re encouraging those who are less fortunate to let their hair down and get a cut with us.

“Whether clients are wanting a quick trim or a dramatic restyle, our talented students are happy to help. As stylists, we understand how having a haircut can make a huge difference to an individual’s self-esteem and confidence – and we’d like to offer this service as widely as possible to boost the wellbeing of our community.”

Clients can book appointments by calling 0113 284 6303.
