Heading back to school each fall can be an expensive proposition. New clothes, new school supplies, new backpacks and lunch bags … it all adds up.
Since 2013, Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology in Mooresville has offered the community a break. Each August, the institute offers free cuts for all children younger than 18.
Cuts are normally just $11, but for the entire month of August, they are entirely free.
“There is always a consultation with the stylist first,” said Julia White, student services coordinator. “And an instructor signs off on the service.” The cut includes a shampoo and blow-dry styling. Clients can add curling or flat iron styling after the blow dry for a small additional charge.
“Back-to-school is an exciting time, but also an expensive one,” said White. “We like to help defray those costs a little – and give students a great new cut to kick off a new year.”
Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent.
You can make an appointment, but Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology accepts walk-ins as well.
The institute is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Hours on Friday and Saturday are 9 until 4 p.m.
Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology is a 9,300-square-foot facility at 461 E. Plaza Dr. in Mooresville that includes 55 student salon stations, four pedicure spas, four individual classrooms and a modern facial room. Students offer haircuts, coloring, perms, relaxers, manicures and pedicures, waxing, blowouts and more at a fraction of the typical cost.
