The “Dayton Barber & Stylist Cutt-Off” will provide free haircuts by professional hairstylists and barbers to students in grades K through 8, to help them begin the school year with a “fresh” and confident look.

The first-time event is scheduled for Sunday, August 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Dayton Convention Center and will also provide students with school supplies.

Dayton native Brandon McKinney, #91 Defensive Tackle of the San Diego Chargers, is bringing the event to Dayton through his BJ Kids 91 Foundation, with co-sponsorship by the Dayton Youth Commission.

McKinney founded BJ Kids 91 in 2006 in order to boost reading and technical literacy among youth. He is bringing the event to Dayton in recognition of the economic needs of many families in his hometown.

Event organizers are seeking licensed hairstyling professionals for participation. Information is available at 333-3644.
