HAIR STYLISTS, BARBERS, MANICURIST!

WE NEED YOU! 

We kindly ask you to spare a little bit of your time (1 – 4 hours) on a Saturday afternoon to give your skills to individuals who have fallen on hard times. We all know how the power of a great haircut makes us feel more confident and better about ourselves. Imagine being able to give that feeling to someone who cannot take a visit to a salon for granted.

  • Your clients will be individuals who frequently use the free shower program.
  • Everybody will sign up for an appointment; there will be designated time slots.
  • Every client will take a shower and wash their hair before the appointment.
  • A Million Drops and Compassion Connections will provide chairs, mirrors, side tables for your tools, extension cords, smocks, gloves and masks, as well as shampoo and conditioner, and as much as we can, anything else you may need to do your job. We would ask you to bring your own tools. Please let us know what else you would expect us to supply.
  • There will be a bar set up with snacks and refreshments.
  • The location has a big parking lot, and it will be very easy and quick for you to get in and out.

To sign up, or if you have any questions, please email us at contact@amilliondrops.org.
