PROHAIRKIT.com, Humble Hairdressers Provide Salon Services to the Homeless

Professional hair tools company PROHAIRKIT.com has partnered with Humble Hairdressers in North Carolina to offer volunteer hairstyling services for those in need in the Asheville community.

Humble Hairdressers was founded in the Spring of 2016 by Jordan Carlson and two other stylists from Wink Salon in Asheville, and offers no-charge haircuts to the less fortunate in the surrounding area.

“We are a group of licensed cosmetologists donating our time and craft to help spread beauty and love,” says Carlson. “Our goal is to shift perception, one cut at a time.”

Humble Hairdressers events are held twice a month, and stylists spend about three hours volunteering for 40 haircuts during each event. The organization plans to increase events and number of haircuts offered as its network of stylists grows. It also expects to offer hair coloring at some point down the road.

“Having the opportunity to do what I love while helping those in need is a no brainer,” says PROHAIRKIT.com owner and founder Alejandro Jimenez. “A good haircut can help shift a person’s whole outlook on life. If I can be the ripple that starts a wave, then I know it is all worth it.”

All are welcome at the Humble Hairdressers events. The main focus has been working with the homeless, and events are held at a venue that also serves meals to the needy while several stylists cut hair.
