Visitors can pay $30 for a haircut, which is a discount from the average price of $50. All the money goes to charity. The salon is donating the proceeds to Kountry Kitchen for its annual food giveaway for people in need. Cynthia Wilson and her husband, Isaac, have owned the restaurant at East 19th Street and College Avenue for nearly 30 years. They started the annual Christmas Drive Giveaway to give back to their neighborhood. More than 175 volunteers help cook, pack and distribute about 2,000 meals.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang has held cut-a-thon events to support various causes. The most recent raised more than $11,000.

In addition to haircuts,  door prize raffles that include gift cards from local businesses, along with a silent auction with items that include first-row Indianapolis Colts tickets, will also be part of the event.

Appointments aren’t necessary for the cut-a-thon. Attendees waiting for a haircut can enjoy complimentary appetizers from Kountry Kitchen Soul Food restaurant.

“It’s a way to give back, and it’s a way to engage people in helping others,” said Lauren Shoaf, a stylist at Kiss Kiss Bang Bang who is helping organize this event.
