VERNON, TX (KAUZ) -

Thursday, Pre-K students to high school seniors were given the chance to get their hair cut for free in Vernon. Xavier Townsend of Hair Biz and Pastor Early

Williams of New Hope Baptist Church wrapped up their second free back-to-school hair cut event around 6:00 p.m.

"It was started a few years ago once I started (the) business. It feels good to give back to the kids because there are some that are less fortunate. (The need help) to get their hair cut, buy school supplies and the assistance that you need for school," Townsend said.

Thursday's event was put on for kids unable to attend a similar free event held earlier in the week.
