Angels with Scissors

A bad hair day can ruin everything.

…gives a person a needed mental boost, helps build self-esteem…

Well, not really. But most of us agree that when we look less than our best it makes things harder. So it makes sense that a “good hair day” might give you an extra boost of confidence that makes life a little easier and well – better.

We have found that a stylish haircut gives a homeless person a needed mental boost and builds their self-esteem.

“Angels with Scissors” is a ministry of the Rescue Mission founded by Mission volunteer and Stylist, Sharon Mirtaheri. Since 2005, the Angels with Scissors have provided free haircuts to men, women and children in a chic salon located right on the Mission’s campus.

The salon is set up to be “volunteer–friendly” so that volunteer hairstylists can donate time ranging from as little as one hour of service to an entire day. The Rescue Mission always has new guests who are eager to be transformed in the salon.

If you are a hairstylist with a heart to help others, please contact Marcela Jara, Volunteer Coordinator, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 540.777.7651 to learn how you too can become an angel – with scissors.
