With scissors and comb in hand, stylist Holly Brothers trimmed Mendel Williams’ hair.
“It’s my birthday cut!” said Williams, a Newport News resident. She turned 62 last Thursday.
The haircut didn’t occur in a salon, though. It took place in a room of the Quarterpath Recreation Center, where Brothers and other stylists from Pigtails & Crewcuts provided haircuts at Monday’s Hands Together Historic Triangle event.
A haircut was one of several services available Monday. In its fourth year, Hands Together aims to provide one-stop access for various resources to homeless and precariously housed community members.
