A ROMSEY based hair salon is giving away free haircuts to the homeless next week.

The Hair Hut, owned by sisters, Beci Curtis, 35 from Chandler's Ford and Siobhan Moody, 29 from Romsey, are set to travel to the Salvation Army hostel on Oxford Street, Southampton to offer everyone there a haircut free of charge.

As well as free trims, the sisters are planning on handing out a range of donated essentials such as deodorants, sanitary products and wash products.

Beci said: "We are massively into fundraising at the Hair Hut and we will continue to to go to the hostel every 6 months to cut their hair. We just love doing it and we have a really successful business so feel it's important to give back. If we can give up a little bit of our time to help those that need it why wouldn't we?"

The free hair cuts will take place on Tuesday November 12, and Beci has also appealed for anyone who 'received too much sweets and chocolate' this Halloween to kindly donate some to the Hair Hut at 79 Base Point, Abbey Park Ind Estate, Romsey, so they can also be donated at the hostel.

Here they will also be holding a collection for people sleeping on the streets of Southampton, asking for people to donate any clothing, coats, food, sleeping bags and essentials, which they will be handing out throughout next week.
