Haircuts4Homeless have arrived at The Whitechapel Centre!
Updated: Mar 29
''I arrive at The Whitechapel Centre half an hour before Haircuts4Homeless are due to arrive, in the hopes that I can grab one of them for this quick interview. But within seconds of coming through the door there is a crowd of people wanting to get their hair cut. The group from Haircuts4Homeless waste no time and get set up straight away. Each chair they set up is instantly filled by one of our clients, and a waiting list is being drawn up.
I’m introduced to Jackie McColl, their Team Leader. As she’s in the middle of cutting a lady’s hair we agree to do the interview once she’s finished, before she starts on her next client. The lady, Jane (name changed), is visibly enjoying herself, and I get to witness first hand the fun and friendly rapport each of our clients have with the Haircuts4Homeless team. Next to Jane there are three more chairs, each of them with a male client sat down. One gentleman is having a trim, the other goes for a short back and sides, and the third is going for a shaved head. It’s no different to the welcoming and attentive atmosphere of a ‘normal’ salon, and why would it be?''
