Free back-to-school haircuts
Children 17 and younger are eligible for the "Cuts for Kids" program offered by students at Remington College's cosmetology program at 6302 E Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Suite 400. It runs now through Aug. 28, but their hours are limited: 9:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 on Fridays. Appointments must be made in advance so call (813) 316-4470 to sign up. And parents are also in for a deal -- they get 50 percent off salon services when they bring their kids in for the free haircuts.
In Gulfport, Tabatha's Exquisite Touch Salon, 4834 18th Ave. S Unit #3, and the Silver Lining Beauty Center, 1834 49th St S, will host a Back-to-School Bash from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday in which they will give free haircuts for boys and free hairdos for girls. There also will be food, activities and free school supplies for kids. For more information, call (727) 321-2255.
