Marion Technical College offering free haircuts for kids

Marion Technical College’s barbering program is offering free back-to-school haircuts in exchange for a story.

The haircuts will be available on Tuesday, August 8 and Wednesday, August 9, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Marion Technical Institute, which is located at 1614 E. Fort King Street, Building 11 in Ocala.

On both days, school-age children will be able to receive basic clipper cuts, fades, and shear cuts. While there is no cost for the haircut, each child is encouraged to bring their favorite book to read to the barber.

The haircuts are for walk-ins only, and each child must be able to sit in the chair alone and not on a parent’s lap for safety reasons.

For more information, visit the Marion Technical College website or Facebook page.
