Back to school season includes new clothes, school supplies and often a new haircut. However, some parents might not have a fresh cut in the budget.
To help those families and students, The Larry Himmel Foundation and California Barber & Beauty College are joining forces to provide free haircuts for kids around San Diego during the 2nd Annual Back to School Haircut event.
