This barbering service is offering free haircuts to the homeless

London’s mobile grooming company, Get Groomed, have joined forces with the Brixton Soup kitchen to offer the city’s most vulnerable citizens a free haircut.

The mobile company, which brings traditional shaves and cuts direct to Londoner’s doors, will be setting up shop in the kitchen in Brixton on 29 August from 10.30am to 2pm and will offer all their high end grooming services, including beard trimmings, for nothing at all.

For those not familiar with the brand, the company lives by the mantra of ‘Your Style. Your Place. Your Time’ and aims to remove all the stress and anxiety associated with getting your hair chopped off – think excruciatingly long wait times and screaming children at the local barbers.

Though no actual barber shop exists, the service works by connecting local hairdressers in London’s boroughs so that customers can be groomed in the comfort of their own space.

Those who attend the event can benefit from a haircut and restyle, trim, and a classic wet shave.

In addition to the lock chopping, the fine people who man the doors of the Brixton Soup Kitchen, a south London-based charity that survives entirely on public donations, will offer their usual well-stocked menu of hot food, along with a host of warm drinks.

The event echoes the efforts of British hairdresser Josh Coombes, who since 2015 has advocated his hugely successful charitable initiative #DoSomethingForNothing. Coombes, who hails from London, travels the world offering free cuts to the homeless (and their dogs) with the simple mission of abolishing the stigmas and stereotypes associated with everyday homelessness.

Moral of both stories? If you’re in the area on 29 August, join in and show your support by volunteering on the day. You’ll be surprised by the difference you’ll make.

Get Groomed will take over the Brixton Soup Kitchen from 10.30am to 2pm on 29 August 2019.
