Hampton salon gives away haircuts, supplies to students before school

HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Students all over Hampton Roads are heading back to school Tuesday.

Some children in Hampton will be sporting fresh, new haircuts thanks to stylists at Hair Envy.

Owner Lakkia White says she’s been giving away free haircuts ahead of the school year for about nine years. She hopes it helps them start their year off right.

“We do it because we understand what a first impression means to kids going back to school,” White said. “We understand about the confidence kids have when they go back to school and have a nice good hairstyle.”

The salon also gave away backpacks filled with school supplies.
