How far would you walk for a haircut?

In Fruitlands Park, Florida, the luxurious Mia Bella Salon and Spa now sends volunteer hair stylists once a month to the Beyond the Walls Food Pantry to provide poor men and women with free haircuts. Co-owner Danielle Daugherty said only five people signed up the first month, but now more than 40 people are on the list.

According to Daugherty, "Everyone deserves a luxury haircut. The same people usually come every month. They really rely on this." Some clients walk all the way across town for the haircut, and some depend on the free service as they prepare for job interviews. "It's a godsend," says client Emily Addenbrooke. She says the friendly stylists always cheer her up. "It gives me a new look on life. If I feel depressed, I come here and feel like a new person."
