A few kids will be going back to school in style thanks to the Salvation Army and Cosmetology Careers Unlimited.

The Salvation Army and CCU teamed up Monday to provide free haircuts for kids entering kindergarten through 12th grade in an effort to cut back-to-school costs for low-income families in the area.

"It's great to see these kids looking sharp and it's great to see these students volunteer their time," said Salvation Army Major Betsy Cox.
