A hairdressing outlet celebrated its first anniversary by offering free hair cuts to about 300 senior citizens and children from Rifle Range here. A team of hairdressers from the Penang studio took part in the group hair-cutting event which was carried out at the House of Hope. The studio's hairdressers led by its three directors attended on the seniors.

Serving the community by giving free hair cuts to senior citizens and children.

A resident, who only wished to be known as Hoon, 62, said she appreciated the free service for the residents.

“I last had a haircut a few months ago and I like my new look after the cut,” she said, beaming happily.

The free service was part of the studio's corporate social responsibility programme. “We want to contribute to society, doing what we do best, by giving them hair cuts.”

Tan Thean Suan, 58-year-old  mother of one of the directors of the studio who is a retired hairstylist, also put her experience to good use by helping out at the event.

The residents later received angpow packets and a packet of vermicelli each.
