Kitchen Cuts: Kids Hair Cuts and Face Painting

Back by popular demand, the girls from Your Presence Salon are visiting A Little Beacon Space in Beacon from their Poughkeepsie location to cut your kid's hair from 10 am to 4 pm for $16 a head, while the kids and I do face-painting at our even bigger table than last time, to accommodate so many little faces. Face-painting is $1, the proceeds from which are being donated to the Kindergarten Teacher Teams in Beacon City Schools.

The first two Kitchen Cuts raised about $60, which A Little Beacon Blog matched to bring it to a total of $130 donated to the Kindergarten Teacher Team at South Avenue School. We have gotten the paint out again to ramp up efforts to donate this amount to the other three elementary schools.

Walk-ins only. Cash or Credit. See you soon!
