On Thursday, June 17, 2021, Beyond 21st Century Beauty Academy barber students provided free haircuts for the Bell Gardens Senior Center's Father's Day event. It had been over a year since we’ve participated in any community events, so it felt great to be back.
Haircuts Event for Seniors
The city hosted a Father’s Day celebration with free haircuts, gifts, snacks, and beverages for residents 55 and older. Beyond’s President, Miss Maria, explained her excitement to start returning to local events - “We’re all about giving back. These past 15 months have been challenging for everyone but there is something about a new haircut that gives you a fresh perspective and outlook on the future.”
