YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Students in the Youngstown City School students Thursday had a chance to get a free haircut. 

The Beyond Expectations Barber College in Youngstown hosted its second annual Back to School haircut event. 

Thirty barbers did the work for the students as they prepare to return to school.

“A lot of people donated pop, food, chips, water, ice, whatever they could just to make sure we could put our event together, so I appreciate everyone who helped bring this together as a whole,” said Assistant Director Anthony Walker.

Walker says last year, the team completed 300 haircuts.  This year’s goal was 400.
