With the school year less than two weeks away, a local salon is stepping in to help out kids in need. The Oasis Salon is holding their fourth annual Back to School Event.
This Sunday, August 7, Oasis Salon is hoping to give 400 kids a confidence boost. After giving 200 free haircuts at last year's event, this year they want to double that number.
This Sunday Oasis will be giving free haircuts to kids ages 5 to 12.
In addition to a haircut, kids will also receive a free backpack. Salon employees say this is their way to give back to the community.
"We know how important it is to have a new haircut, or even any hair service. When we go in ourselves, you feel great coming out. So to give that to young kids is such a great feeling, just give that that extra confidence they need. One less thing for them to worry about," say Sara Clark, a stylist at Oasis.
The event will have food, bounce houses, and music for families to enjoy. The free event will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
It will take place at the Oasis parking lot at 27th and O Street in Lincoln.
