Get a free haircut, save the planet — seriously!


Been a while since you had a haircut? Then drop everything, because next week, you can get a free haircut or blowout and help Mother Earth at the same time.

On Sustainable Beauty Day — that’s this Monday, April 21 — Italian hair-care brand Davines is helping to raise funds for the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, a nonprofit group that aims to plant 18 billion (!) fruit-bearing trees worldwide. Not only do these trees create food and income opportunities for their communities, they also clean up the air.

And seriously, all you have to do is get your hair done. Next week, participating salons (here’s a list) will offer haircuts and/or blowouts for free. Gratis. Nada. Instead, clients are asked to donate a minimum of $15, with all proceeds going directly to the FTPF. If salons near you aren’t participating but you’re feeling the do-gooder vibe, Davines will also be donating 10% of proceeds from sales of their carbon-neutral products. It’s a win-win all around, wouldn’t you say?

Davines OI shamppo and conditioner, available at Davines.
